Even superstars have bad ideas, and Keith Urban shared one of his disastrous performance ideas on ‘Conan,’ where he decided to play a song in total darkness…as in…no lights at all. No one could see a thing…not even Keith. Take a listen to his hilarious recounts.
As a judge on ‘American Idol,’ Keith knows first hand what it’s like to be critiqued and he tries hard not to break anyone’s spirit, but instead help them. Listen to his recount of a very non-helpful he received at the age of 9 when he played a talent show in Australia.
TONIGHT will not only see Keith Urban’s return to the couch for Late Night with Conan O’Brien, it will also serve to mark the debut of his new music video for “Raise ‘Em Up”, the fifth single from his record-breaking album FUSE, which features Eric Church. It comes on the heels of Urban’s third #1 from the album, “Somewhere In My Car.”
“Some of the idea for this video started with me playing with my phone one day, filming our girls jumping in slow motion,” explains Urban. “That’s all that they were doing, just jumping up in the air in slo mo. We put ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ on and were watching this film of our girls and they just went together beautifully. It was so simple, and emotional, and it captured some of the spirit of what I feel is at the heart of this song.”
“My favorite part of this video were the candid moments that were captured between Keith and I on film,” said Church. “It’s cool that a number of those made it in the final version. To me, they really reify the emotion of the moment and experience.”
The Grammy nominated single, “Raise ‘Em Up”, already marks Urban’s 33rd top 10. It extends his lead as the artist with the most consecutive top 10s, a streak that began on August 12th, 2000 with the release of “Your Everything.” Urban and Church will perform the song for the first time on network television on the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 19th at 8:00PMEST/7:00PMCST.
