Four-time Grammy Award winner and two-time 2015 Grammy nominee Keith Urban has released the fifth single from his record breaking seventh studio album Fuse. “Raise ‘Em Up” featuring Eric Church, follows in a line of Fuse #1s including “Little Bit of Everything”, “We Were Us” and Urban’s 17th #1 “Somewhere In My Car”.
“Eric and I have been friends for a couple of years,” said Urban. “I was hoping we could figure out a song to do at some point and when ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ came my way I knew I’d found the one. I sent it to Eric and he loved it. Nathan Chapman and I created the track, Eric came down and we both sang, and it was all done in half a day!”
“Raise ‘Em Up,” recorded in Nashville, was written by Jaren Johnston, Jeffrey Steele and Tom Douglas. It was co-produced by Nathan Chapman and Urban.
Fuse is one of the most celebrated albums of Urban’s career. Besides its #1 debut atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia, a first for a male country artist, it has received 20 Award show nominations including two for the 2015 Grammy Awards for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Raise ‘Em Up” and the other for Best Country Solo Performance for Fuse’s platinum-selling single “Cop Car.”
