Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban Weigh in on Crossing Genres

Carrie Underwoodkeith urban

Carrie Underwood says she thinks she knows why other artists are hooking up musically with country acts. She says the reason is simple: country is hot and “everybody wants in.”  Carrie notes that there are many artists who are willing to mix genres, such as was seen at last week’s CMT Awards. She says we live in a world where “everybody kind of listens to everything.” And she says that’s cool.

Keith Urban says the idea of blending R&B and country music is nothing new — despite what you might think from watching the CMT Awards last week. Keith points out that artists like Ray Charles had hits on the country charts. He says R&B and country have “a long history” together.

    Carrie and Keith are my two favorite artists. I know Carrie has said that she will not remix any of her songs just to crossover. She said if they do crossover they will be the original song. I hope both Carrie and Keith do some duets with other artists from other genres. Carrie is doing a children’s benefit in New York tomorrow night with a lot of big names. She and Keith are so giving. I am proud to be a fan.

    Carrie is the best! Not only is she a great humanitarian but Carrie is so talented, humble, and a beautiful person!

  3. Gloria says:

    Carrie and Keith are my favorites as well. I remember when they co-headlines a tour together and each night performed “Stop Dragging My Heart Around” and they were so awesome together. I have huge respect for these two artist.
