I have discovered Keith Urban. Ever since CMT’s Crossroads with one of my favorite musicians, John Mayer, I have been in awe of the music that these two men can make together. Wanting to hear more of Mr. Urban’s music I did pick up his newest album Defying Gravity and was pleasantly surprised.
I have not listened to much “country” music in my adult life. But I have been trying to broaden my musical outlook lately — even though I still am nowhere near cutting edge with my listening. I am revisiting some areas — I guess you can call this contemporary country. It is a far cry from the Porter Wagoner and Slim Pickens my parents used to listen to.
I would have loved to have gone to the concert Keith Urban and John Mayer had in August at the Gorge in Washington state. But it was too far away — in miles, time and money. I hope this collaboration will continue. In the mean time I will enjoy the music that each of them make individually.
