Country star Keith Urban is set to add teacher to his resume after signing up to mentor high school students at a special event.
The singer will take part in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's educational program for students in Nashville, Tennessee and share his songwriting wisdom and experience in the music industry with pupils.
Ali Tonn, the museum's director of education and public programs, says, "We're thrilled to offer music and arts students from several Metro Nashville Public Schools the chance to get 'up close and personal' with one of country music's great talents, Keith Urban.
"In this special program, students will hear Keith talk about the craft of songwriting, his influences and creative inspirations, seminal moments in his career and more. They will also have the opportunity to ask him questions. This program is the first of its kind for the museum and will serve as a 'pilot' of sorts; we hope to be able to offer more All Access educational programs when our museum expansion is completed in 2014."
The event, which will be streamed online, will take place at the museum's Ford Theater on 6 September (12).
