We saw it night after night on the Escape Together Tour and to now end the year with these nominations is pure magic," he says.

Urban -- who has won two Grammys for his songs "You'll Think of Me" and "Stupid Boy" -- is nominated for best male country vocal performance, best long form music video, best country collaboration and best country album.
