CMA ENTERTAINER AND MALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR NOMINEE KEITH URBAN TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE “PUT YOU IN A SONG”; TO HIT RADIO MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH
NEW URBAN CD GET CLOSER IN STORES NOVEMBER 16th
On September 13th, CMA Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year nominee and three-time Grammy Award winner Keith Urban will release his debut single “Put You In A Song”, from his forthcoming Tuesday, November 16th release GET CLOSER. “Put You In A Song” was co-written by Urban, Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes and is co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban.
“I’ve always loved songs about ‘the guy in love with the unattainable girl’, said Urban of “Put You In A Song. “And the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song, just struck me. That way he’d be able to take her with him everywhere he goes...day and night.”
Urban added, “On my way to write with Jedd (Hughes) and Sarah (Buxton), I stopped by this music shop and bought a bouzouki. I got it out of the case, we got a great groove going on the drum machine, I started playing the opening riff and the song just took off.”
GET CLOSER follows Urban’s Billboard Top 200 Album Chart #1 Defying Gravity, which produced two #1 singles including "Only You Can Love Me This Way" and “Sweet Thing”, for which Urban won his third Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance).
Urban is currently in the studio in Nashville, putting the finishing touches on GET CLOSER.
