Keith Urban Releases New Song 'GO HOME W U' With Lainey Wilson


Keith Urban


We see the release of Keith Urban’s “GO HOME W U” with Lainey Wilson, the third song released from his forthcoming album, out this fall. The up-tempo, ‘fuzzy good feeling towards all friends and strangers’ song, was “not meant to be a duet,” says Urban. So, when the CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson signed on, the song took shape.  “GO HOME W U,” follows the release of Urban’s current single “Messed Up As Me” as well as the song “Straight Line,” released earlier this year.


“I wrote “GO HOME W U” in 2020 with BRELAND, Sam (Sumser) and Sean (Small),” said Urban. “We had a blast writing it. It started out as a late-night drum loop, I grabbed a bass guitar and started playing a simple recurring bass line. Before we knew it, we were writing a chorus that could be sung by any drunk person in any bar anywhere in the world.”


He adds, “A friend of mine suggested the idea of making the song a duet and I immediately thought of Lainey. Besides the fact that I love her voice, she’s got the swagger and attitude that fit so well with the song.”


“Keith has been someone in the industry I’ve taken notes from for a while now,” said Wilson. “From watching him at CMA Fest every year growing up to hearing the way he treats people up and down music row, he has taught me a lot. He’s a genuine supporter of mine and I am honored I get to continue to learn from one of the best. Getting to do a song with Keith is a notch on my belt I am very proud of.”


Urban consistently reminds music lovers around the globe why he is one of the world’s best live performers.  His concerts have become legendary - as unpredictable as they are explosive.  An experience of emotion, musical texture, energy and showmanship.

 

Urban’s musical virtuosity and fluidity has made him the musician’s musician.  He’s collaborated with a diverse group of artists that include, among others; Billy Gibbons, Buddy Guy, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, John Mayer, HARDY, Julia Michaels, Justin Timberlake, Dzeko, Miranda Lambert, Nile Rodgers, Post Malone, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones and Vince Gill.

 

He’s long supported numerous charities.  His “All For The Hall” benefit concerts for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum© have raised over $4.3 million.  He is the first Ambassador of the CMA Foundation, an advisory board member at the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and is a longtime supporter of The Mr. Holland’s Opus Fund and The Grammy Foundation.
