Keith Urban might have found his next lead guitarist in the crowd during a show in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Urban spotted an ambitious young guy near the front row thank to his girlfriend holding a sign that read, “It’s my boyfriend’s birthday.”
That fan was Robert Joyce, and what Keith didn’t know is that Rob has his own YouTube, and he has some serious guitar skills!
“Can I play your guitar?” Rob asked Urban.
Urban didn’t hesitate and brought the young man up on the stage, handed him his Fender guitar and then Rob immediately launched into “Good Thing,” a song with some very tricky guitar parts.
Keith’s band wasn’t even on stage when the duo went into the song, but when it became apparent that Rob could play, they joined in and together put on quite a show.
Rob mentioned that his dream job is to play guitar, so hopefully this performance opened a door for him because it definitely impressed Keith Urban.
