Keith Urban is getting ready for some football! The country crooner will help usher in the new NFL season with a live performance during NBC's pregame show on Sept. 5, before the championship Baltimore Ravens take on the Denver Broncos.

The Australian singer will perform on a stage floating in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, part of a celebration for the Super Bowl champs.

Urban, who recently signed on for another season as judge on "American Idol," plans to perform music off his new album, "Fuse," due out Sept. 10.

His NFL kickoff show leads into the season opener at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. Danielle Bradbery, winner of season 4 of "The Voice," will sing the national anthem at the Thursday game opener.
