Keith Urban receives tremendous honors for his album RIPCORD.

We recently talked about the success of Keith Urban’s single “The Fighter” from RIPCORD, performed with Carrie Underwood. Now, the singer is getting tremendous accolades for the song “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

On March 3, the Australian singer celebrated “Blue Ain’t Your Color” becoming the fourth No.1 song from his album RIPCORD when Urban joined songwriters Clint Lagerberg, Hillary Lindsey, and Steven Lee Olsen for a special performance of the song.

Later that evening, the four-time Grammy Award winner and the ACM Awards’ most nominated artist was surprised with the revelation of more career milestones when Urban was presented with multiple plaques: one for RIPCORD’s No. 1 debut in the United States, Australia, and Canada; and another for “Blue Ain’t Your Color” being the most streamed country song for 13 weeks. Billboard presented a plaque for 37 Top 10 career singles — “Blue Ain’t Your Color” being the most recent — and Pandora presented a plaque commemorating Urban’s cumulative 2 billion streams as well as 40 million streams thus far for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”

Urban is currently on tour, so be sure to catch one of his amazing live performances in a city near you.
