Keith & Eric Hit #1

Published On May 12, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Keith Urban charts his 18th Number One hit with “Raise ‘Em Up,” featuring Eric Church. The song claims the Number One spot on both the Billboard and the Aircheck/Mediabase Country charts. The song is also Keith’s fourth chart-topper from his Fuse album.

Keith says that he had been looking for a song on which to collaborate with Eric, and this one raised its hand.

“It wasn’t written as a duet, but it just struck me as the perfect song. There’s a particular theme really in the song, particularly in the second verse that I felt was just perfect for Eric. I sent him the song, and he loved it. And I was really happy that he came in and sang on it.”

Keith will perform during tonight’s first of two-night finale of American Idol. He will return to judge the final season of American Idol in 2016, along with Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr.
