Keith Urban Releases “Raise ‘Em Up” featuring Eric Church

Keith-Urban_-Eric-Church

Keith Urban has released the fifth single from his record breaking seventh studio album Fuse. “Raise ‘Em Up” featuring Eric Church, follows in a line of FUSE #1s including “Little Bit of Everything”, “We Were Us” and Urban’s 17th #1 “Somewhere In My Car”.

“Eric and I have been friends for a couple of years,” said Urban. “I was hoping we could figure out a song to do at some point and when ‘Raise Em Up’ came my way I knew I’d found the one. I sent it to Eric and he loved it. Nathan Chapman and I created the track, Eric came down and we both sang, and it was all done in half a day!”

“Raise ‘Em Up”, recorded in Nashville, was written by Jaren Johnston, Jeffrey Steele and Tom Douglas. It was co-produced by Nathan Chapman and Urban.

“Raise ‘Em Up” is one of my favorite songs off ‘Fuse.’ What do you think of the new single??

Eric Church Rides “Talladega” To Unanimous No. 1

Eric Church

Add another accolade to the tally for Eric Church’s The Outsiders.

The album continues to deliver hits nearly a year after its release as “Talladega” reaches No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase country songs charts this week. It’s the second chart-topping single from the career-defining, GRAMMY Award-nominated album for Church.

“Talladega” joins previous No. 1 “Give Me Back My Hometown,” which is nominated for Country Song of the Year at the GRAMMYs. Church also is up for three other GRAMMYs, including Country Album of the Year. Church will perform on the Feb. 8th CBS broadcast.

The Outsiders ruled 2014 with country music’s biggest debut week, the genre’s first platinum-selling release of the year and an appearance on many critics’ best-of lists. Church was lauded for his fearlessness and embraced by fans, and that enthusiasm has already spilled over into 2015. Church set the Bridgestone Arena event attendance record with more than 18,000 fans spilling into the aisles at his recent hometown show in Nashville and has a number of dates ahead on his 2015 THE OUTSIDERS WORLD TOUR that could break records as well.

And now he’s got his first No. 1 of 2015, just shy of the Feb. 11 anniversary of the release of The Outsiders. “Talladega” is one of a handful of wistful songs on the album that have resonated deeply with fans. A story of youthful days viewed through the memory of a trip to the iconic Alabama race track, “Talladega” builds from an easy-going acoustic sway to towering electric guitar as the song races to the finish line. “Here’s to turning up, slowing down and cars that go real fast,” Church sings in the song’s chorus.
