Keith Urban will help the NFL kick off the 2013 season.

Urban is scheduled to perform live during NBC's pre-game show before the Baltimore Ravens open the season at the Denver Broncos on Thursday, Sept. 5.

A news release says the Grammy-winning country music star will perform from a stage floating in Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

The performance comes during a busy period for the Australian singer. He's out on tour this summer, set to release his new album "Fuse" on Sept. 10 and learned this week he'll return next season as an "American Idol" judge.

"The Voice" Season 4 winner Danielle Bradbery will sing the national anthem at the game.
