Recently, Keith Urban has been inviting country music's rising stars on stage for collaborations and his latest live duet partner is none other than RaeLynn.
RaeLynn described the experience as a “full circle moment," which took place on Saturday night (August 19) when she was invited to join Urban onstage to perform his song “We Were Us." Urban and RaeLynn were both performing at the Bi-Mart Willamette Country Music Festival, held annually at Reed Anderson Farm in Brownsville, Oregon. The “Fighter" singer needed a duet partner for his song “We Were Us," which he originally sang with Miranda Lambert. Earlier in the summer, Urban brought Lauren Alaina on stage to perform the same song.
Watch the performance in the clip below:
In one of her social posts, RaeLynn couldn't contain her excitement at the once in a lifetime experience. “2006: I signed up for @keithurban monkeyville fan club. 2017: I sang #wewereus on stage in Oregon with him. GOD: your awesome and thank you [sic]." On Twitter, Urban re-tweeted that video, commenting, “Thank YOU for sitting in with us. I loved it!!!! You got an open mic anytime." The tune was written by Nicolle Galyon, Jimmy Robbins and Jon Nite and was originally released as a single in 2013 from Urban's Fuse album. The song hit No. 1 on the country charts, has been certified platinum and earned Musical Event of the Year at the CMA Awards in 2014.
While he is not currently on tour, Urban has teased fans with social posts that he's back in the studio, working on new music. RaeLynn is promoting her sophomore album and it's latest single “Lonely Call."
