There was obviously a huge talent pool for Keith Urban to choose from to pick his Graffiti U Tour opener.

Ultimately, he settled on Kelsea Ballerini because he felt that her more experimental country sounds matched Graffiti U. Keith told People:

“There were a mix of people that were interested, available, but musical compatibility was one thing. I knew the kind of record I was making wasn’t pure country down the line, and Kelsea’s records [aren’t either]. They’re a fusion of things and I felt that she would be compatible.”

Not only can fans expect some new tricks with Keith’s upcoming album, but he also says his tour will be a unique experience:

“I’m always looking for new ways to connect with the audience, new things to put in the set list and in the show — not just songs, but moments that we haven’t done before.”

Keith and Kelsea are hitting the road for the Graffiti U Tour soon in June.
