    Secret Santa Keith Urban Style

    This is cool as hell. It's nice to hear a feel good story about a celebrity.

    Keith Urban gets the festive spirit | The Courier-Mail

    HERE'S a heart-warming Yuletide tale that shows Caboolture lad Keith Urban really is a top guy.

    The Nashville-based superstar played secret Santa to an awestruck youth in a Fortitude Valley guitar shop on Saturday.

    The young punter was in Tym Guitars trying out a fuzz pedal (a guitar effects device) when Urban, in between Boondall shows, walked in with his band.

    Owner Tym Brennan says Keef and co were "genuinely very nice" and spent half an hour trying out a bevy of guitars (with the youngster messing around on the pedal all the while).

    After settling on a $1400 Maton (a good Australian-made guitar), Urban leans over and whispers, "How much is the pedal that kid's playing?"

    "$450," Brennan says.

    Urban: "Put it on my card with the guitar."

    Tym: "Do you want me to tell the kid?"

    Urban: "Wait till I leave."

    Brennan recounts: "Keith pays, then on the way out, shakes the youth's hand and says, "Merry Christmas".

    "Was that Keith Urban? He said 'Merry Christmas' to me," the kid beams.

    "Yeah," says Brennan, "He just bought you that pedal."

    The kid was so "blown away" he was shaking, Brennan tells us.

    Has Kanye West ever done anything similar?

    Country music folk are pretty much salt of the earth people. Good job Keith.
