Keith Urban released a new version of his current single, “We Were,” which now features vocals from one of the tune’s songwriters, Eric Church.
Penned by Eric, Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndell, the song reminisces about lost teenage love with lyrics like “We were a couple of line steppers who just couldn’t wait to step over the line / Never thinkin’ we wouldn’t last, I was your first and you were mine.”
“I heard that my buddy Eric was a writer on ‘We Were,’ so I thought ‘Hey, what a cool opportunity for people to get to hear a writer singing,’” said Keith in jest. “I think this guy could be really big.”
Keith’s original version of “We Were” is currently No. 10 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after 22 weeks.
