(Radio.com) As Keith Urban was celebrating the opening of his temporary exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, he was also processing the fact that his father, Robert Urban, has entered hospice care, The Tennessean reports.

"He's probably only got a few weeks, if that," Urban told the daily. 'I've just been dealing with that the last couple of days. This has all come at a very strange time where it's typical of a career that has extreme highs and extreme lows, all often at the exact same time.
