(Radio.com) Keith Urban's father lost his long battle with cancer on Saturday (Dec. 7). Robert Urban encouraged his son to pursue a life in music, which also led to his wife Nicole Kidman.

"I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic and I, and our family, have received since my Dad's passing on Saturday night," Urban said in a statement.

"His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace. My Dad's love of country music and America set me on my life's journey, and shaped so much of who I am today. Thank you to everyone who has kept us all in your thoughts and prayers."

Last week, Urban shared with a reporter for The Tennessean newspaper that his father had entered hospice care and was nearing the end of his life. Read more here.
