Three-time nominee at this year's CMA Awards Keith Urban brought his current Top 40 hit "Blue Ain't Your Color" to the stage tonight at Tennessee's Bridgestone Arena.

Performing on a blue-tinted stage (and under blue overhead lighting), Urban crooned his way through the soulful ballad, ripping off a short guitar solo, and receiving valuable backup from a hefty string section.

Urban is still up for Entertainer of the Year and Musical Event of the Year at the CMA Awards, the latter for his Carrie Underwood collaboration "The Fighter." He previously lost for Album of the Year (for Ripcord) to Eric Church's Mr. Misunderstood.
