Keith Urban has been busy this awards season.

The “Somebody Like You” singer recently attended the Oscars with his Oscar-nominated wife, Nicole Kidman, and then last week presented Record of the Year at the Grammys. Tonight he took the stage at the CMT Music Awards, opening the telecast by performing his powerful new single, “Wild Hearts”, a song he dedicates to dreamers, jokers and wild hearts.

Urban brought the neon signs of Broadway to the Nashville Municipal Auditorium stage, with country music legends like Johnny Cash lit up in neon behind Urban as he wowed the crowd with his energetic kick-off performance. The five-time CMT Music Award winner kicked off the show with a bang, literally, as he finished his song with an explosion of sparks that erupted from the stage. Another memorable show from a country music legend.

Released in August, “Wild Hearts” is the lead single from Urban’s 12th studio album.
