Tyler Hubbard Releases Song Demo Featuring Keith Urban
Tyler Hubbard is giving fans a glimpse into the creative process of how “Dancin’ In The Country” came together. The song was written by Hubbard, Keith Urban, Ross Copperman, and Jon Nite. Hubbard released the demo from the day they wrote the song “Dancin’ In The Country (Demo – feat. Keith Urban).”
Keith brings his musical versatility to the demo, not only on guitar but on bass, ganjo, and vocals. Originally written and recorded in October 2021, the “Dancin’ In The Country” demo also features Ross Copperman on keys and programming.
Tyler said in a statement, “I’ve always admired Keith Urban as a writer but never had the chance to actually write a song with him. Keith came into the writing session so engaged and ready to go where the ideas took us. Ross and Jon are two of the finest writers in town, and by the end of the day, we had a song we all felt was special. It’s exciting to share a behind-the-scenes look at how a song comes together.”
Urban added, “Spending a day with Tyler, Ross, and Jon in the studio writing this song was a total blast. Especially creating the track with Ross – I love working fast, ideas flowing really quickly- a bass part, a ganjo part, a very intentionally 80s country super compressed electric guitar riff.”
Urban’s latest single, “Brown Eyes Baby,” is nearing the top of the country charts this week. Keith told us he was immediately drawn to it when he first heard it.
Urban said, “I love songs that are looking to bring out the best in somebody and bring somebody back to life, you know. The songs that I’ve loved that have done that for me, that give me hope and lift me up and see me for who I can be, those kinds of songs, those kinds of people really, which is what ‘Brown Eyes Baby’ is, and it’s just sexy. It’s sexy as hell. (laughs) I love that song.”
