Guitar virtuoso and legend Jeff Beck passed away on Tuesday (January 10th) after contracting bacterial meningitis. The music world mourned the loss of the icon, including one of country music’s best guitar players — Keith Urban. On Wednesday (January 11th), he posted a heartfelt tribute to him, saying, “I was shocked and saddened to hear that Jeff Beck had ‘portaled into the next realm.’ It’s impossible to label or frame his gift, his music, his ART, or to try and quantify his impact on not only guitarists, but all kinds of musicians, singers, and music lovers all over the world. He’s absolutely one of the few faces on the Mt. Rushmore of guitar players.” Keith was able to stand side stage, along with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, last year and was mesmerized by his talent firsthand.

Tyler Hubbard will be featured on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown this weekend. Catch him on Saturday (January 14th) beginning at 9am ET/8am CT and Sunday (January 15th) beginning at 8am ET/7am CT.
