    Keith Urban to Undergo Throat Surgery


    Keith Urban is set to undergo throat surgery later this month to remove a polyp that has developed on his vocal cords, according to his publicist.

    Though the procedure is a minor outpatient surgery, it will require that Keith rest his voice for an undetermined period of time. This will require the postponement of his All for the Hall benefit concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which was scheduled for Jan. 18 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Keith will honor his preexisting one-song performance commitments leading up to his procedure at the end of the month. All other appearances will be rescheduled for 2012.

    Yes, will definitely keep him in my prayers. No matter what kind of surgery, you just never know what may happen so prayers are definitely needed. I adore him also!

    I hope he's ok. Julie Andrews had similar surgery years ago and her voice was never the same.

    I hope he is ok too. Weird how so many people are having throat surgery now: Keith, Adele, John Mayer.

    I think the experience Julie Andrews had is pretty rare; it's pretty common for artists to have surgery on their vocal cords, especially as they get older. Keith tours a lot, and he's been around for over 10 years now; it's understandable that constant touring would put an unimaginable amount of stress on his voice. But Keith seems to take great care of himself, and I'm sure he has great doctors advising him on how to take care of his voice before and after the procedure. I'm sure he'll be just fine.

    My first thought while reading this was "Ouch". Praying all goes well and he has a speedy recovery

    Oh no! I hope this does not prevent him from performing at the Bayou Country Superfest in May! I hope he gets better soon. Urban and Underwood are my two favorite artists!
