He went back out solo again in 1998, this time achieving success with his self-titled album for Capitol Records. Three of its singles made top 10, with one of those three ("But for the Grace of God", which he wrote with two members of Music/TheGoGos) going to #1, thus breaking a nearly three-year dry spell for the label. He returned in 2002 for his second album, ''Golden Road''. This one got more critical acclaim and won him his biggest hit "Somebody Like You". It broke several records for country music, including most weeks at number 1 (at least on ''Radio & Records''), got him a fairly major hit at pop, and introduced him as a serious country artist.

He's been married to actress Creator/NicoleKidman since 2006 and currently has two children with her. He released an album in 2009, ''Defying Gravity'', which was critically panned for containing several mushy love songs, but its commercial success is undiminished. Then, his conquest for love songs was finally done right in 2010 with the release of ''Get Closer''. After charting with the cut "For You" from the soundtrack to ''Film/ActOfValor'' in 2012, he put out the NewSoundAlbum ''Fuse'' in late 2013.

** His 1999 SelfTitledAlbum has a more subdued sound too. "Your Everything" and "But for the Grace of God" in particular are much softer songs that could've been cut by nearly anyone in Nashville. Also, all four singles have prominent fiddle and/or steel guitar, with very little of Urban's now trademark guitar solos. ("Without You" is one of the only other songs in his catalog that has prominent fiddle.) He also wasn't yet playing the ganjo, which made its first appearance on "Somebody Like You". The album itself was produced by session pianist Matt Rollings instead of Dann Huff. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, his hair was shorter]] and he spelled his name in {{all lowercase letters}}.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His 1999 album has a more subdued rock influence, and songs like "Your Everything" and "But for the Grace of God" that sound like they could've been cut like anyone. It was also produced by Matt Rollings instead of longtime producer Dann Huff. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Also, his hair was shorter]] and he spelled his name in {{all lowercase letters}}.
** The songs in The Ranch were largely more mainstream and subdued, too. "Just Some Love" in particular has a fiddle solo, which sounds particularly strange in contrast to his later works; "Without You" is the only other single he's ever had with a fiddle in it.
