Watch: Keith Urban teams up with a random fan and sings along to all 487 verses of 'American Pie'
The superstar invited Dylan Brekke on the stage and when Brekke asked, “Do you know ‘American Pie’?” Urban readily came up with the response, “I know all 487 verses.”
Keith Urban is no doubt a generous man, and he doesn't necessarily need an A-Lister to come and sing along with him or share the mic. Recently, the singer shared the stage for a song at the Sayer's Club in Los Angeles on Friday night with Dylan Brekke, a day before Urban performed as the headliner at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California.
The superstar invited Brekke on the stage and when Brekke asked, “Do you know ‘American Pie’?” Urban readily came up with the response, “I know all 487 verses.”
After having that spectacular experience to take away with him, Brekke took to social media to share his experience with the world. At the time, he recalled the magical encounter, saying "I shout out to Keith — and I'm in the second row — 'You inspired me to pick up the guitar! 'And he turns to me and says, in his cool kick-ass Australian accent, 'I'm the reason you picked up a guitar, mate?'"
Brekke's mom, who was also present at Stagecoach, got herself a signed T-shirt from the musical sensation. "He signed my shirt, 'Hi mom! Keith Urban,'" he told the Taste of Country in an interview, laughing. "Keith ... I just wanna say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You and Nicole are so sweet and the fact that you saw potential in me, I'll forever be grateful," Brekke later added.
THE VIDEO IS FINALLY HERE! I will never ever forget how thoughtful and kind @keithurban was. Jamming with him the night before his headlining @stagecoach show was UNBELIEVABLE and SOOO AMAZING. I’ve been paying my dues, constantly, playing coffee shops, bars and restaurants for years, with only my Mom and Dad in the audience cheering me on...THAT ALL CHANGED LAST NIGHT. I’ve been told that this is too much of a hard dream to pursue, but folks, I say GO FOR IT. I hope for more beautiful life experiences like this in the future! Love you guys and thank you for all of your support, including you, @keithurban!! @theellenshow @fallontonight #KeithUrban #TheSayersClub #Stagecoach #Rockingout #AmericanPie #DonMcLean #BESTNIGHTEVER
The megastar also acknowledged the fandom moment with a post of his own, captioned as, “Well Dylan- you might’ve missed Stagecoach – but u sure made up for it!!!!!!! You’re a champion! – KU”
