Keith Urban is known for many things: his hair, his unbelievable guitar skills, his Australian background and obviously his huge country hits. Though, what comes first and foremost is his undisguised love and devotion to his wife, Nicole Kidman which he clearly displays in his new song.
Despite not partaking in the songwriting process for his new single “God Whispered Your Name”, this electric, overjoyed country music trustee still has a way of putting out music that seems solely meant for the ears of his mate of 13 years. This new track was written by Chris August, James Slater, Micah Carter, and Shy Carter.
“And then God whispered your name / And that’s when everything changed / And love came out of the rain / And talk about being saved”
There’s a bit of a bluesy serenade feel here. Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color” has similar production to it whereas the intricate instrumental pieces seem to audibly blur in order for a light to shine through onto the vocals paired with powerful lyrics: an approach common in his discography.
“Suddenly I wanna live / More than I ever did / I’m never gonna be the same / When God whispered your name”
Urban will be hosting the 55th ACM awards on April 5 for the first time. Performances for this event have not yet been announced, though we can prematurely hope this charmer will also take the stage as a musician to promote this new single.
