Keith Urban's father, Robert "Bob" Urban died on December 5, 2015. The Australian country star had his dad on his mind when he started writing "Gone Tomorrow." However, the track is not so much a tribute to the late Robert Urban as much as a reminder to enjoy life.
Urban recalled to Taste of Country
flying from Los Angeles to Nashville, thinking about his father. "When you lose people, I think it shocks you into going, 'Where did they go? I want to believe that there's something more, but right now's still real," he explained. "We're never going to get time back."
