Grammy Award winner and reigning Country Music Association (CMA) Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban has completed the follow-up to his nearly four times platinum third album Be Here. Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing (Capitol Records Nashville) contains thirteen brand new tracks and is one of the most anticipated releases of the year. The album showcases Urban’s consummate songwriting and vocal talents, as well as his searing guitar work.


Co-produced by Dann Huff and Urban, Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing, includes “Once In A Lifetime,” (John Shanks, Keith Urban) the album’s first single, which upon its release last month became the highest debuting single since the inception of the Billboard Chart. Highlights of Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing include the bold, contagious rockers “Faster Car” (Urban) and “I Told You So” (Urban). Songs such as “Shine” and “Used to the Pain” exhibit Urban’s ability to produce infectious melodies that patiently build to a musical climax. While brilliant songs such as “Stupid Boy,” “I Can’t Stop Lovin’ You” and “God Made Woman,” an anthemic tribute to women, all show Urban’s ability to select and interpret songs written by others.


Said Urban of Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing; "It’s just an accurate reflection of where I’m at now. I think it’s the sound of being happy and extremely excited with the music that we’re making.”

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Keith Urban (vocals, guitar, E-bow, bouzouki, mandolin, piano, bass guitar, percussion); Ronnie Dunn (vocals); Tom Bukovac (guitar); Rami Jaffee (keyboards); Jimmie Lee Sloas (bass guitar); Chris McHugh (drums, programming).
Muze PNote The fair-haired Aussie who came across the pond with guitar in hand to show Nashville how it's done, Keith Urban became a country music phenomenon in the early 2000s. Like his contemporary Brad Paisley, Urban combined songs with a broad-based appeal and fiery fretboard skills to gain a wide audience. LOVE, PAIN & THE WHOLE CRAZY THING finds Urban refining his approach ever further, to achieve the perfect marriage of pop, rock, and country.
Muze PNote Electronic-sounding beats, soaring string arrangements, and searing lead guitar mesh seamlessly with banjo, steel guitar, and mandolin throughout the album. The amalgamation of '70s/'80s widescreen pop-rock a la Elton John and Bryan Adams with contemporary country sounds surprisingly natural here. From the airborne "Shine" to the down-and-dirty "Raise the Barn" (with a guest turn from Brooks & Dunn's Ronnie Dunn), Urban never falters. Whether the reason lies chiefly in his guy-next-door persona, hook-heavy songcraft, or instrumental deftness, LOVE, PAIN has platinum written all over it.

Producer: Keith Urban; Dan Huff

Artist Overview

Though Keith Urban is a major US country star, he actually hails from Australia, where he began his career. After coming to America with his band the Ranch, Urban began making international inroads. As skilled at guitar playing as he was at singing, he did some session work for Garth Brooks and the Dixie Chicks before his solo career began to really take off. By 2000, though, Urban had his first big country hit, "It's a Love Thing," and he was off and running. In addition to being a consistent hitmaker, Urban has made the news for his dating life, including a long connection to actress and fellow Aussie, Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.124)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Imagine Daryl Hall with Nashville guitar skills and an Australian's fascination with Southern culture, and you have Keith Urban....He's accomplished in ballads, unafraid to scuff up his smoothness."

Entertainment Weekly (p.79)
- "Urban has a flexible tenor voice, with just a hint of rasp in it; he excels at singing ballads..." -- Grade" B-
