Greatest Hits: 18 Kids (known as Greatest Hits: 19 Kids on the re-release) is a greatest hits album by Keith Urban, released on 20 November 2007.[3] It contains 16 of Urban's hits as well as two new songs. Two versions of the album were released: a regular edition and special edition, in which the second disc includes 12 music videos.[4] Both versions use the radio edits of Urban's songs, except for "Somebody Like You." Also included is a cover of Steve Forbert's 1980 single "Romeo's Tune", and a re-recording of the non-single "Got It Right This Time" from 2006's Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing.

The album debuted at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 117,000 copies in its first week.[5] It has been certified Gold by the RIAA and CRIA. It has sold 1,026,000 copies as of May 2013.[6]


The album was re-released as Greatest Hits: 19 Kids on 19 August 2008 to include a newly recorded version of "You Look Good in My Shirt".[7] This song was originally recorded on his 2002 album Golden Road, and the newly recorded version was issued as a single in June 2008. The 19 Kids version also serves as a replacement for the 18 Kids version, which is now out of print.
