Keith Urban celebrated his 24th Mediabase Country Airplay Chart #1 this week with his latest single “Coming Home,” featuring Julia Michaels. The song, which marks the first time that a country artist has utilized a sample of another country song, is Urban’s latest single from his critically hailed #1 album GRAFFITI U. It was co-written by Urban, J.R. Rotem, Julia Michaels, Nicolle Galyon and country music legend Merle Haggard, who returns to the chart for the first time in decades.
“Coming Home,” which Urban explained ‘began with an idea of using the intro of Haggard’s “Mama Tried”,’ gives Urban an astounding thirty-ninth Top 10 singles.
This past week tickets went on sale for Urban’s “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR AUSTRALIA,” which will feature special guest Julia Michaels. In days, additional dates in Brisbane and Melbourne were added to meet demand.
Urban continues to enjoy the success of his ninth album release and first in nearly two years, GRAFFITI U. The album debuted #1 in the U.S., Canada and Australia, the second time that Urban has accomplished that feat, the only male country artist to ever achieve but once.
Urban’s “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018” heads to Canada next month, during which time he will also perform on the Canadian Country Music Awards.
