Last week, BMI celebrated at the Analog at the Hutton Hotel to honor the special fusion of classic and contemporary country with pop music seen in Keith Urban and Julia Michaels’ No. 1 hit “Coming Home.”

Written by Urban, Michaels, Nicolle Galyon, JR Rotem and Merle Haggard, the relatable, feel-good track was showered with high-praise from BMI’s Mason Hunter, Sony ATV’s Josh Van Valkenburg, Universal Music Publishing’s Troy Tomlinson, Warner Chappell’s BJ Hill and Katy Wolaver and Universal’s Mike Dungan.

As customary at a Keith Urban No. 1 party, he performed the song solo with a special nod to Michaels by incorporating her hit song “Issues” into a make-shift bridge. The celebration was packed with a who’s-who of Nashville and LA’s industry power-players, including a special appearance from James Burton, Elvis Presley’s guitar player who recorded what Urban described as the “incredibly iconic” lick on Haggard’s original track featured in the song. Urban is set to perform at the CMA Awards in November where he is nominated for the prestigious “Entertainer of The Year” award.
