Los Angeles: Singer Keith Urban's father Robert Urban has died and is "finally at peace" following his long battle with cancer.
Just a few days after the 48-year-old country star revealed that his father had been placed in hospice care, the singer announced that he had died on Saturday night, reported E! online.
I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic (Nicole Kidman) and I, and our family, have received since my Dad's passing on Saturday night.
"His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace. My dad's love of country music and America set me on my life's journey, and shaped so much of who I am today. Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers," Urban said in a statement.
Last week, while touring his new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame, Urban revealed that his father had entered a hospice.
