Keith Urban first recorded 'Got It Right This Time (The Celebration)' for his double-platinum album 'Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing,' released in November of 2006. He then re-recorded the track for his 2007 'Greatest Hits: 18 Kids' record. Although the song was never issued as a single, it's still special to Urban because, as he tells The Boot, it was inspired by his marriage to Nicole Kidman.
Toby Keith videos are some of the most entertaining clips in country music. The singer-songwriter has built one of the biggest careers in the genre, and his unusually clever videos have contributed much to that success.
Kenny Chesney's 38th Top 40 hit and 15th No. 1, 'Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven,' was co-written by Jim Collins and Marty Dodson -- and it was almost a George Strait song. The King of Country recorded the tune for his 2008 'Troubador' album but decided not to include it in the final track listing. So, Chesney cut the track, put it on his 2008 record, 'Lucky Old Sun,' and made it the project's first single. Inside, he shares with The Boot his take on the successful tune.
One of the most thought-provoking songs on Eric Church's chart-topping, Grammy-nominated 'Chief' album is 'Country Music Jesus.' Co-written by the country star and Jeremy Spillman, the song laments those who think country music needs "saving" by someone who's "preaching from the book of Johnny Cash." Inside, Church explains to The Boot the story behind the song's lyrics.
Dierks Bentley videos are some of the coolest in modern country music. Since his debut in 2003, the artist has released a long string of singles, 12 of which have reached the top of the charts, and Bentley has shot accompanying videos that have helped establish him as one of the most cutting-edge artists in commercial country music.
Darius Rucker wrote 'True Believers,' the title track from his third solo country album, released in 2013, with Josh Kear. It was released as the disc's debut single in August 2012 and reached the Top 20 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, and as Rucker tells The Boot, the song is a perfect example of a true-to-life country tune.
Kellie Pickler's third studio album, '100 Proof,' was released in January 2012 and contains 11 songs, six of which the songstress co-wrote. One of those tunes is 'Rockaway (The Rockin' Chair Song),' co-written with Brent Cobb and Barry Dean, which Pickler says was inspired by her very first date with now-husband Kyle Jacobs.
