‘Catch of the Day’ – Keith Urban – “Female” [AUDIO]
Today we feature a song that saw it's debut last week at the CMA Awards Show, and has picked up a lot of reaction in response to recent scandals in Hollywood and Nashville. A song that the artist heard just three weeks before his debut on Nashville's biggest night.
Keith Urban has never been one to shy away from controversy, and with the recent tidal wave of female actresses and performers coming forward to speak out about personal experiences of abuse in both Hollywood and Nashville, it couldn't have been more timely. Written by Shane McAnally, Nicolle Galyon and Ross Copperman, today's feature was penned less that a week after the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke in Hollywood. Urban recorded the song with just the hint of what was to come: a picture posted to his website of a microphone with the tag "11/8/17".
The performance on the CMA Awards garnered great response, both good and bad. Urban has spoken up, saying that upon hearing it, he felt it was a mantra for those that have experienced sexual harassment or assault. And Urban isn't the only male country star trying to redirect the lyrical content of country music. Chris Janson's latest album includes the track "Drunk Girl", which addresses sexual assault and Luke Bryan includes the song "Most People Are Good", a track that addresses support for the LGBTQ community.
The response convinced Urban to release the track as his next single, and it's in our spotlight today. Brought to you by All American Super Car Wash of Lawton, Keith Urban's "Female", today's Catch of the Day, new music you haven't heard, but you'll want to hear it again.
