Keith Urban Reassures Fans Before Surgery
Aside from a few one song performances, Keith Urban has cleared his calendar for the remainder of 2011. He says he’ll be undergoing surgery to remove a polyp that formed during his most recent tour with Jake Owen.
“I just went a little hard on this tour, and got a polyp on my vocal cords, so [I’m] going to have that taken off,” Urban tells Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O radio show. “At some point during the tour I hemorrhaged into a vocal cord and then this little polyp formed and it’s not going anywhere.”
“It’s not an uncommon thing, and we’ve certainly been seeing a lot of it recently too, but I think the technology has improved and so the success of this kind of surgery is much greater now than before. I’m hoping I can continue that tradition!” Urban says.
