Watch Keith Urban and Kelsea Ballerini Cover Camila Cabello's 'Never Be the Same'

Keith Urban performs at the 2017 CMA Music Festival at Nissan Stadium on June 11, 2017 in Nashville, Tenn

Keith Urban’s surprise free pop-up show Wednesday night (Jan. 17), had, well, a lot of surprises. In a refreshing clash of genres, Urban and just-announced 2018 tour opener Kelsea Ballerini covered Camila Cabello’s “Never Be the Same” for the packed crowd at Nashville’s Exit/In.
The performance was part of Urban’s official announcement of his upcoming Graffiti U World Tour, which will follow the release of the country superstar's upcoming album Graffiti U and feature Ballerini as support. The tour kicks off in June in St. Louis, and will span a total of 58 shows in the U.S. and Canada.
As for the Cabello cover, Urban is not one to shy away from trying different sounds. Ballerini is more of a pop ballad singer than a country star, and he told us last week that he thinks the pairing will make for “broad compatibility” when they hit the road together later in the year.
In the past, Urban has covered the likes of the Bee Gees, the Eagles, and Simon and Garfunkel, so it seems likely that fans can expect more surprises on the upcoming tour. A release date for Graffiti U has yet to be revealed.
Check out Urban and Ballerini's Camila cover as well as Urban's tour dates below.
