Keith Urban made an impact to a struggling singer a few years back have given the guy the confidence to pursue a career in country music.

Keith met Casey Thrasher at the CMA Awards in 2012 and told him that he believed in him. And they recently met again... this time at the American Idol auditions in Salt Lake City. After Casey's performance of Brooks and Dunn's "Believe," all three judges gave him a golden ticket to Hollywood week. I have said before that I feel that Urban is the heart of the show this year. Probably why he's back in the judge's seat for a second straight year...
