South Jersey Women’s Wawa Run-In With Keith Urban Goes Viral

Ruth Reed has always been the type to pay for strangers, especially service members or veterans, at Wawa. So when she saw one man at the counter who was short on cash and struggling to pay, Reed stepped in. Except, he looked kind of familiar.

The two exchanged pleasantries in the Medford Wawa after she helped pick up his tab, and Reed remarked that he looked a lot like Keith Urban.

“He thanked me and asked my name. I asked him his and he told me it was Keith,” she says. “I said he did look like Keith Urban, and he said he was. I didn’t believe him; I asked where Nicole [Kidman] was and who was the lady. He told me it was his sister. He finally said I could ask his bodyguard.”

The country music star, who recently played a show in Camden, snapped a photo with Reed before heading on his way.


The story of the unlikely meet up (and Reed’s generosity) has since gone viral. Now, MasterCard is hoping to help Reed. The credit card company tweeted it would like to connect with Reed so it can provide her with 52 prepaid credit cards to help her spread kindness for the entire year.
