Keith Urban’s Latest Release Was Written For Playing Outdoor Venues

Keith Urban recently released a song called “Nightfalls,” which he wrote about a venue like Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, which he played last night (Thursday, June 9th) at CMA Fest. Prior to taking the stage, Keith explained: “It was really written out of a desire to get back and play places just like this – a summer concert outdoors. The gist of the song and the feeling of it is really what it feels like even for me to go to a concert, not just to be on stage, but to be out there on the lawn if you play the amphitheater or wherever it is, up in the stands, sun’s going down, it’s warm, everybody’s feeling good. ‘Nightfalls’ was all about that.”

Keith launches the North American leg of his headlining The Speed of Now World Tour on June 17th in Tampa, FL.
