Watch Keith Urban’s New Year’s Eve Tribute to Artists We Lost in 2018, Including Roy Clark, Aretha Franklin & More

Keith Urban braved the chilly temperature in Nashville on Dec. 31 to help ring in the New Year as the featured performer during Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight celebration.

Before the traditional Music Note Drop and accompanying fireworks helped signal the start of 2019, Keith treated fans to a medley of songs that paid tribute to many artists who died in 2018, including Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries (“Zombie”), Aretha Franklin (“Respect”), Roy Clark (“Rollin’ in My Sweet Baby’s Arms”), Avicii (“Wake Me Up”) and Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd (“Sweet Home Alabama”).

Watch Keith’s medley below.
