Funeral held for Keith Urban's father

Keith Urban's father has been laid to rest.

The country music singer and his family paid their respects to Robert, who passed away last week after a battle with cancer, at a moving funeral service in Queensland, Australia today (17.12.15).

The 'Making Memories Of Us' singer was seen with his mother Marienne and brother Shane but wife Nicole Kidman was not present.

In a tribute to his late father, the 48-year-old star drove his dad's treasured Lincoln Continental convertible to the church in Caloundra.

Meanwhile, Keith previously thanked fans for their support in the wake of his father's death.

In a statement, he said: "I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nicole and I, and our family, have received since my dad's passing on Saturday night. His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace."

Despite feeling a sense of relief, Keith previously spoke of the "extreme low" in knowing that his father only had a "few weeks" to live.

He shared: "He's probably only got a few weeks, if that. 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."
