Country music superstar Keith Urban has shown deep love and admiration for Taylor Swift’s album Midnights in his own unique way. Urban revealed he was blown away by how good the pop icon’s new album is, comparing the feeling to having “some kind of acid trip.”

Keith Urban Hails Midnights as One of the Greatest Albums Ever

The country singer has known Swift for many years, going way back to 2009 when the “Love Story,” singer pranked Urban on tour. The two have remained friends since then even performing on live shows together on multiple occasions.

Showing support for his fellow artist, Urban has listened to Midnights multiple times since it was released on October 28. Urban calls himself an audiophile and claims to be able to connect on a deeper level to an album’s tracks once he gets his headphones on.

“Extraordinary! This is among Taylor’s finest. This and 1989. Absolutely stunning, stunning pieces of work,” Urban said. “It’s just so beautifully put together like some kind of acid trip. Absolutely love it, top to bottom. I think it’s one of her best albums ever.”

Urban gushed about how much he enjoyed listening to the new album, meanwhile Swift tweeted that the country singer is a role model for her.

“His music has inspired me endlessly,” Swift wrote on her tweet talking about the The Voice AU coach.

He’s Currently Finishing the Final Leg of his North American Tour

Urban will have some more time away from his family as he completes the final leg of his North American tour dates. As a family man, having to spend more time away from his wife Nicole Kidman and their two daughters has been the hardest part of touring.

He announced more dates on his tour for the very last few of the North America leg in his Instagram stories. The work for a well-known musician like Urban doesn’t stop, even being on the road for the best part of the year.

The understanding wife of the country singer went to Instagram to share a very heartfelt birthday tribute to her husband on his special day. Urban plans to spend time at home with his family in New South Wales, Australia once he finishes the tour.
