It’s not even Grammy season, but Keith Urban is about to pick up another one

ABC/Image Group LA Keith Urban already has four Grammys, and he’s about to pick up one more.

The Recording Academy will honor the Australian superstar with the Recording Artists Coalition Award April 5 at the annual Grammys on the Hill gathering in Washington, D.C.

Keith is being honored because of the work he’s done for music education -- he's partnered with various organizations to both encourage kids to perform and provide them with instruments.

“The opportunity to work with aspiring musicians and kids, who are just discovering music for the first time, really inspires me,” he says.

“Creativity is at the heart of an innovative society," he adds, explaining his motivation. "It brings people together and teaches children self-expression, creative confidence, and improvisational skills which are essential to their development."

Last year, Zac Brown Band was honored at the Grammys on the Hill Awards.

But Friday, we’ll get our first taste of his own music, as Morgan releases his first single for Warner Nashville, titled “Kiss Somebody.”

On his socials, Morgan teases a special “prelude” video that’s coming as well. Inspired by the song’s lyric “sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody in the back of a cab,” the new clip finds Morgan performing the tune in a vintage taxi, as he rides around Music City on a hot summer night.

As for the person Morgan happens to be kissing in real life, Kelsea has teased that the two definitely plan to make their union official before 2017 comes to a close.
