Keith Urban's Chest Ink-Baring 2012 CMA Awards Arrival

Posted Thursday November 1, 2012 7:51 PM GMT

Certainly one of the most highly-adored guests of the evening, Keith Urban arrived in style at the 46th Annual CMA Awards on Thursday (November 1).

The “Without You” singer gave a glimpse of his chest ink as he headed into Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena sans actress wife, Nicole Kidman, who skipped out on the festivities this time around.

Always an integral part of country's big night, Keith is set to take the stage as one of the many performers, which will also include Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, and The Band Perry.

The Australian heartthrob is also vying for the title of Male Vocalist of the Year, against Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, and Blake Shelton.
