Keith Urban featuring Carrie Underwood
Written by busbee and Keith Urban
It’s a great tradition going back to those great country duet records – Conway & Loretta, Porter & Dolly, Johnny & June. Of course, that’s about the only connection to country music here. This is a pop record, through and through.
That’s hardly a pejorative in my world. I love a good pop record. But good pop records are a lot harder to make than good country records, and this one has too many production tricks that get in the way.
Seriously. If there’s a better male singer than Keith Urban and a better female singer than Carrie Underwood in the current generation, I can’t name them. Just get out of the way and let them sing.
Ring me up when they’ve made the unplugged version. I’m sure it will be an A.
