OFFSTAGE: Keith Urban Moves Past Sad Songs

Published on May 29, 2013 by CMT News

Keith Urban
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Sad songs make me happy. But it sounds like maybe they do not make Keith
happy. At least, not anymore.

For a while there, though, he could make me cry within the first few seconds
of “You’ll Think of Me,” “But
for the Grace of God,”
“Stupid Boy” and “Tonight
I Wanna Cry.”
Now I think he’s done with that and has progressed to something different.

“I’ve inherently written
music that’s full of more hope than anything. I’m not really interested in sad music that doesn’t really say anything other
than to just whine and complain,” Urban told CMT Radio. “I’m more interested in somebody’s struggle. But I like there to be
some sort of sense of light somewhere in there, just a little bit of light to pull forward.”

Aww. I can’t wait to
hear those kinds of songs. And the ones Urban
told the The Tennessean newspaper
that have a “Jack Johnson, Zac Brown-ish
kind of vibe.”
