Get Closerby Keith Urban
"I've always loved songs about 'the guy in love with the unattainable girl,' " said Keith Urban of "Put You In A Song," the lead single from his new album Get Closer. "And the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song just struck me. That way he'd be able to take her with him everywhere he goes, day and night."
Get Closer follows Urban's Defying Gravity, which landed at Billboard's No. 1 spot and produced two No. 1 singles, including "Only You Can Love Me This Way" and "Sweet Thing," for which Urban won his third Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance). From the Label

Everytime Keith makes an album, it becomes my favorite.. but this one is probably going to be my favorite of ALL my collection of any genre! Keith has managed to bring out his "older" sound and go back to his roots, and to also fuse it with his "new" sound too. The vocals and guitar rifts are incredible, and I love how he has brought in some ganjo, keyboards,and fiddles as well. Each song has it's own personality, and I love that! Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this wonderful CD!
Keith's new CD is wonderful. Filled with beautiful love stories and then some upbeat "drive around and turn it up loud" music. There is not a single track that I would skip. I also purchased the Deluxe Version at Target and it contains a few more great songs, including a cover of Santana's "Winning". All in all, this album is fantastic. The instrumentation is great -- Keith brings back the banjo in a number of songs. And, his guitar playing is just stellar, as always. I've only had it for a few days, but have already played it enough to know the lyrics to all the tracks. Thank you Keith for your gift of music!
the c.d is what i expected good songs but the shipping was terrible I purchased 1-3 day shipping and it took about 11 or so days. buy it in stores if you want it fast.
What a great album! I can't pick a favorite. They're all great. Beautiful songs, music and voice. You're gonna love it!
Every Keith Urban CD is worth purchasing. His voice is strong and warm and his guitar/musical abilities fun and exciting. New music from Keith is a happy day. The 7th track - Right on Back To You is fabulous. If it's not released as a single, I'll be surprised. You will love it from the first time you hear it. The 6th track - Georgia Woods is also a great song. #3 - All for You is very pretty.
albums usually have a favorite song and then we skip a few.... not this one.... there is a song that relates to every mood I'm in at times.... short but sweet, Love it Keith !!!! I went out and bought the Target copy also, and I'm glad I did, a few more GREAT songs on there as well....!!!!
This CD is amazing! A perfect combination great lyrics, vocals & guitar work! Perfect Christmas gift for those you love!
From the first listen you will love it. The guitar solos are amazing. Check out Georgia Woods. Actually all the tracks are amazing!!! Buy at Target to get the deluxe version!!
