The certification marks one more milestone for the Australian singer/songwriter/producer/guitar wizard. In 2001, urban received his first Grammy nomination, his first American Music Award nomination, and his first Academy of Country Music nomination. “But For The Grace of God,” the third single released from his album, became urban’s first number one record, both as an artist and writer. He also made his first appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
