Chris Cornell's Widow Posts Message For Keith Urban

January 3, 2018

Keith Urban paid tribute to many of the late artists of 2017 during his New Year's Eve performance, including Chris Cornell.

Urban rang in the New Year performing in Nashville, where he acknowledged the artists that we lost in 2017. His tribute medley included Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, Gregg Allman, Chuck Berry, and Malcolm Young of AC/DC.

Cornell's wife saw the performance and wrote Urban a message on social media. "Thank you @keithurban for the beautiful tribute for @chriscornellofficial - bringing in the New Year with his memory," Cornell's wife wrote on Instagram.
