Hot off his “Raise ‘Em Up” concert tour, Urban takes the magic of guitar playing from the concert stage right into the comfort of your own home as he continues on his mission to spread the joy of music. Whether you are a beginner who has always wanted to play the guitar, or you are just simply looking for a new guitar to advance your skills on, Urban has created a guitar package that fits your needs. Not only do these one-of-a-kind guitar packages include all the accessories and tools necessary to play and sound great, but they also feature Keith personally guiding and teaching you in a special DVD series of one-on-one lessons with the award-winning artist.

The “Night Star” limited-edition series arrives just in time for the holidays and features two versions of the “Night Star” guitar – an all-wood, handcrafted, Acoustic-Electric guitar with on-board four-band EQ and tuner; or the Solid Body Electric guitar with double humbucker pickups, four volume and tone control knobs and a three-way selector switch.

Each complete 22-piece set is available in five beautiful colors including: Black Night, White Rain, Midnight Blue, Grey Heat and Raw Grain. Other features include: a beautiful, faux leather semi-hard case; guitar strap; chord chart poster; polishing cloth; powerful 15-watt amplifier; an extra set of comfort-coated strings; four signature picks; and the exclusive “Player: Beginning Guitar with Keith Urban” double-lesson DVD.

Urban recently released his seventh studio album FUSE, which marked the first time that ANY country artist has simultaneously debuted at #1 on the all-genre charts in the United States, Canada and Australia. He recently completed his “Raise ‘Em Up” Tour, and received three Academy of Country Music® Awards earlier this year, bringing his total to twelve, and he has won four GRAMMY Awards. He is the first artist to win the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award® for best new artist and to go on to win Best Male Vocalist, a title he’s captured three times, as well as the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award. He’s won an American Music Award® and People’s Choice Award®. He’s had 16 No. 1 singles, including two from FUSE, and five consecutive platinum or multi-platinum albums.

“No one does it better than Keith Urban, and we are so happy to have him return to HSN this holiday season,” said Joy Mangano, President of Ingenious Designs. “America has fallen in love with Keith as an award-winning musician and judge on American Idol, and now he will inspire you to experience the joy of music through this brand new closed limited edition guitar collection.”

Keith Urban Sells Record 22,000 Guitars On HSN

May 21, 2014

Beating his own record, no pun intended, Grammy winner and “American Idol” judge Keith Urban returned to HSN Sunday to sell more than 22,000 guitars, the home shopping network said Wednesday.

The too-cute country music star, who is married to actress Nicole Kidman, bested his previous record of 20,000 guitars. That mark was set during his sellout debut on HSN last November.

You gotta love Urban and Kidman. We recently read an interview with Kidman, and she said she often travels on the road with Urban. One of their favorite fast-food spots is Wendy’s. Can you imagine walking into a Wendy’s and seeing those two!

Most recently on HSN, Urban was hawking his limited edition “Light The Fuse” and “Phoenix” Urban guitar packages.

Urban introduced his “Light The Fuse” guitar series on Sunday as part of his Urban line of guitars.

“In true Keith fashion, the music mega star took a moment from his record-setting day for a surprise impromptu jam session with adoring fan Tori Fuson at HSN’s studios,” HSN said in a press release. “The two posed for photos and Keith ended the session by autographing her Urban guitar.”

Oy! Joy Mangano, president of HSN affiliate Ingenious Designs, chimed in.

“Keith’s ability to inspire people through music and encourage them to find their own song is simply amazing,” Mangano said in a canned statement. “I am thrilled to congratulate Keith on yet another tremendous appearance on HSN and am excited to work with him on the next phase of this incredible musical journey.”

The “Light The Fuse” limited edition series was inspired by Urban’s chart-topping album “FUSE” and “Light The Fuse” tour, which kicked off last year.

The “Light The Fuse” Collection features two versions of the “Light The Fuse” guitar — all wood electric or acoustic-electric — and comes in five gorgeous flame maple burst color ways – Brazilian, Ebony, Brazilian Blonde, Cherry Red and Teal Burst.

It is part of a 21-piece set that includes a powerful 15 watt amplifier; extra set of comfort coated strings; carrying case; signature guitar picks; and a double-lesson DVD.

The DVD features Urban personally walking you through one-on-one lessons. The complete package, with double-lesson DVD, is part of his mission to bring music into the lives of others and “inspire and help you to discover the creativity that will set you on your musical journey.”

‘American Idol’ Randy Jackson Back On HSN With Guitars

December 15, 2013

Grammy-winning producer Randy Jackson is back on HSN Sunday with what is his third line of guitars. We guess he’s dueling with his “American Idol” compadre Keith Urban, who recently hawked guitars on the home shopping network.

Jackson’s True Faith Guitar Collection will be the Today’s Special. It comes in the wake of the debut of his “Diamond Edition” last December and “American Tribute” Collection, which launched earlier this year. Sunday’s 20-piece package is under $300 with free shipping.

This new collection features both an all-wood solid body electric and an acoustic-electric guitar, each offered in five colors — Black Onyx, Silver Hematite, Ruby Red, Purple Amethyst and Chocolate Diamond. The instruments also have a Maltese cross insignia on their backs, a faux crackled mother-of-pearl pick guard and rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl inlay.

Each guitar also has the phrase “Courage, Loyalty, Believe” on its back.

“I’m proud of the True Faith Guitar package,” Jackson said in a canned quote. “This guitar will become your best friend and is the perfect way to share the gift of music with someone especially during this holiday season.”

Jackson began playing guitar when he was 13.

“Jackson continues to play a key role with the blockbuster TV show ‘American Idol,’ mentoring the talents of aspiring singers alongside Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr., and Keith Urban,” HSN said in its press release. “Following an impressive career in the music industry, Randy has since built an impressive personal collection of guitars and believes music is the universal language that brings people together.”

Yadda, yadda.

Country Singer Keith Urban’s Guitars Are A Sell-Out On HSN

November 6, 2013

Country singer Keith Urban was a hit on HSN.

The hot, charming spouse of slim actress Nicole Kidman sold more than 20,000 of his limited edition Urban Guitars Sunday, resulting in the cancellation of his last three shows on the home shopping network, HSN said Tuesday.

The four-time Grammy winner and “American Idol” judge had a sellout debut. Urban’s first appearance on HSN marked the largest guitar debut ever for channel.

“With the sellout world premiere of the Urban Guitar Collection, HSN has once again demonstrated its unique ability to showcase a brand across all platforms like no other retailer in the world,” Joy Mangano, President of HSN’s Ingenious Designs, said in a canned statement.

“This unprecedented launch marks the beginning of an exciting and dynamic partnership and I congratulate Keith on his tremendous debut,” she said. “I look forward to our continued success as we work together to provide access to high-quality guitar packages to aspiring musicians everywhere.”

The URBAN Guitar Collection featured two versions of the “Phoenix Edition” guitars — electric and acoustic/electric — and was offered in Brazilian Burst, Emerald Brazilian Burst, Rich Black and Vintage Natural Ivory.

It wass part of a 21-piece set that included a custom amplifier, coated guitar strings, embroidered guitar strap, guitar picks, instructional DVDs featuring one-on-one lessons from Urban for the first time ever, and more.

Urban recently released his seventh studio album, “Fuse,” which marked the first time that any country artist has simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre charts in the United States, Canada and Australia.

He is currently on the road for his “Light The Fuse Tour”. At each show, Keith uses his signature Phoenix guitar — the same guitar that sold out on HSN — and then signs it and gives it away to one lucky fan in the audience.
