Keith Urban's fans are just as awesome and loving as he is.
Each year, members of Keith's fan club "Monkeyville," now known as "The 'Ville," visit hospitals around the world, and deliver stuffed monkey's to children who are sick. The tradition, 12 years strong, takes place around Valentine's Day.
This year, The Monroe Carell Jr Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center, received a visit! Lisa Powell & Deb Meissner, from right here in Tennessee (and BIG 98 fans too) spearheaded the trip to donate 153 stuffed monkeys.

Thanks to Keith Urban Fans in "The 'Ville," over 2700 monkeys were distributed this year. Moral of the story: If you're gonna monkey around, let it be for a good cause.
