Keith Urban, Dan + Shay Perform ‘Tonight I Wanna Cry’ [WATCH]
Press play on the video above to see footage of Urban and Dan + Shay rehearsing the song on a tour bus, followed by video of the three country artists singing together during Urban's set.
"We were in the basement of my pal's house on a really gloomy day," Urban recalls of the inspiration for the song, which he co-wrote with Monty Powell. "That was pretty easy to write, unfortunately, because it's where I was at.
"Artistically, it's a bit of a quandry because my want is to always be open, very open, with what I write about and how I feel," he continues. "But I also have a want to protect my privacy as well."
The Aussie is currently climbing the charts with his latest single, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16," from his upcoming new album.
“It connected in the way I hoped it would,” Urban says of the song, which he performed for the first time at the 2015 Country Radio Seminar in February, “so I think that’s probably what had all of us start thinking maybe that’s the first song we should get in the studio and work on.”
Dan + Shay are also climbing up the charts with their latest single, "Nothin' Like You," from their 2014 Where It All Began album.
