-lsslick quote

Keith Urban is a true blessing to the music industry and to his fans. Every CD that man puts out is like a fine wine, it gets better and better with time. Eleven songs on this CD and you will not want to skip listening to one of them. Actually, you will not know which one to listen to first. Guitar riffs on some of these songs are amazing, as all of his CD's in the past. You must purchase this CD and you will see that Keith Urban is as passionate for his music as he is for life. The man is amazing. Submitted by Deb in Hammonton, NJ

Amazing New Keith CD

by Candi on 4/2/2009

I have been listening to Keith's Defying Gravity CD for two days straight, and I love this CD! I have been a fan since 1997, and have all of his CDs since his first one he release in Australia. This CD is for anyone who loves love songs. There are songs that are ballads, and then there are ones that make you want to get up and dance. My favorite song is Hit the Ground Running. This song have an upbeat tempo and just makes you smile! If you want an amazing CD, you need this one! Read More

Product Overview

"You can't blame gravity for falling in love."
Albert Einstein

On Defying Gravity, the openhearted and uplifting new album by Keith Urban, there is a deeply felt musical statement, a life-affirming song cycle marked by a clearheaded sense of passion and hope. From the opening romantic yearning of "Kiss a Girl," to the heartfelt gratitude of the closing "Thank You," Defying Gravity offers listeners the inspiring and stirring sound of a great musical artist coming of age and creating his most personal and effecting music yet.

"Fortunately, this is where I am at right now in life, in my marriage, and in my home with a new girl," Urban says of Defying Gravity's truly joyful and thankful mood. "And coming the road that I've taken to be here, I do feel a lot of gratitude."

Keith Urban's 2006 album, LOVE, PAIN AND THE WHOLE CRAZY THING, was an extremely personal album chronicling a period of personal upheaval both good (his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman) and bad (just prior to the album's release, the singer entered rehab for unspecified addictions), and although it was a success by most commercial measures, it was the Australian country singer's first album not to produce a Number One single on the country charts. The follow-up, DEFYING GRAVITY--from the adoption of a more buoyant mindset in the title song, to the soaring giddiness of the singles "Sweet Thing" and "Kiss A Girl"--is a far less somber affair. Produced by Urban's usual musical partner Dann Huff and consisting mostly of songs written or co-written by Urban (a cover of Radney Foster's sly "I'm In" being the best of the exceptions), DEFYING GRAVITY is a summery, good-time album filled with Urban's irrepressible charm.
Artist Bio
Keith UrbanSince first moving to Nashville back in 1992, Keith Urban has gradually established himself as an extraordinary singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer who has brought his own distinctive talent, energy, and charisma to Country music and beyond. In return, Urban has now established himself as both a global superstar and a highly respected artist with the impressive track record to prove it, including Grammy Awards, Country Music Association Awards, Academy of County Music Awards and Australia's coveted Aria Award. He has a loyally devoted worldwide fan base that comes to see him every time he takes the stage, as he connects with the people who have made it all possible.Keith Urban's millions of fans have followed his creative progression from his first American album as a member of The Ranch (1997), through an increasingly accomplished series of the Platinum-selling solo albums, Keith Urban (1999), Golden Road (2002), Be Here (2004), and Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing (2006), as well as the compilation Greatest Hits: 18 Kids (2007).And so for a decade now, Urban has remained a welcome and enduring presence on Country radio thanks to a series of popular and memorable songs, including such #1 hits as "But for the Grace of God," "Somebody Like You," "Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me," "You'll Think of Me," "Days Go By," "Making Memories of Us," "Better Life," "You Look Good in My Shirt" and "Start a Band," Urban's 2008 guitar and vocal duet with pal, Brad Paisley. And as a core artist on all Country video outlets, Urban's career to date has also been documented on a series of Platinum video collections.In recent years, Urban's remarkable musical gifts have also brought him to numerous places where Country superstars have rarely gone before, whether powerfully dueting with Alicia Keys on the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" on the stage of Live Earth, appearing on Saturday Night Live, or sitting in with the likes of Al Green, Justin Timberlake, BB King and John Mayer at this year's Grammy Awards."I have a real appreciation for the long, colorful, diverse musical road I've taken to get here," Urban explains of his musical journey. "All through my youth in Australia, I got to play in so many different situations. I grew up in Tamworth which is sort of the Country music capitol of Australia -- playing and competing there, but I also formed my own band playing West Coast Rock stuff that I loved. Then I got a job as a musical director for a cabaret singer, so I was learning "Twelfth of Never" and "Viva Las Vegas" too. At 16, I had to wear a tuxedo and count off the band. You name it -- I played it in every pub and club in Australia, and that's given me a great palette to draw upon. I feel very lucky to have all these opportunities to play with so many artists who I really admire. Playing with people -- and playing for people -- is what it's all about."
