Keith Urban's Definition Of Entertainer Is Based On Live Performance

Keith Urban heads into this weekend's ACM Awards with a pair of nominations, including Entertainer of the Year and Male Artist of the Year. Keith, who is the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, loves to perform and thinks that being good at that is the definition of "entertainer." He tells us: "Well, I know the criteria isn’t purely about live performance, but I’ve always felt that that’s what it is, otherwise I thought it probably should be called Artist of the Year, but I always thought it’s called Entertainer of the Year. I’ve always loved putting on concerts and tours and shows and really tried to put on something that’s incredibly entertaining and engaging. I probably obsess about that part of what I do equal to making records."

The 54th Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Reba McEntire, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday (April 7th) at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
