Keith Urban’s New Single ‘Little Bit of Everything’ Inspired by Madonna
Keith Urban has revealed a surprising source of influence and inspiration for his upbeat new single ‘Little Bit of Everything,’ which will appear on his new album ‘Fuse,’ due out Sept. 10. The country superstar revealed that he borrowed a little from a 2001 Madonna track.
Yes, Madonna! Her song ‘Don’t Tell Me’ had a wee bit of a country influence, and in turn, influenced a country artist over a decade later. How’s that for cyclical?
“She had a staccato acoustic guitar part in there that I thought was very cool,” Urban said about the song, which was penned by Kevin Rudolf, who is largely known as a pop artist, and Nashville songwriters Brad and Brett Warren.
While the Material Girl isn’t a name that pops up in country conversations on a daily basis, it’s refreshing to see how Urban and his team were able to get creative with one of her songs and to cull inspiration from it.
Urban, who as of now remains the only judge left on the Season 12 ‘American Idol‘ judging panel, will get back to his other job –touring- on June 18. His Light the Fuse Tour will launch in Cincinnati later this month.
