Keith Urban, will release his brand new single “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” tomorrow. Nearly two years removed from the release of his #1 album FUSE, which produced four #1 singles, Urban’s latest will see the digital delivery of the song to radio tomorrow at 6:00AMET/5:00AMCT, as well as the network television debut of “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, live on the CMT Awards.
“It’s a great feeling to be back in the studio shaping a new album,” said Urban. “‘John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16’ was sent to me a few months ago by one of the songwriters and I loved it immediately – loved it so much that right before I walked out on stage at the Ryman (Auditorium) for CRS a few months back, I thought I’d play the song solo acoustic to see what the audience thought. Flash forward and there’s no doubt that their response that day helped make it the first single from what will be my next album.”
Written by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne and co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban, the up-tempo track’s title “resonated deeply” with Urban. “It’s the poetic use of the three John’s and what each represents to me.”
Urban is set to debut “John Cougar. John Deere. John 3:16” live on stage of the Bridgestone Arena during Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards at 8:00ET/7:00CT on CMT.
“John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” will become available for purchase and streaming at midnight (11:00PM CT) also on June 9th.
