Keith Urban is mourning the loss of his beloved father Robert Urban.
Less than week after telling fans that his dad was in hospice care, the American Idol host began to remember his dad for all of his influence.
"I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic and I, and our family, have received since my Dad's passing on Saturday night," Urban said in a statement to E! News. "His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace."
He continued, "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."
