Huntsman Produces Keith Urban One Hour Radio Special
Beginning on Thursday, November 2nd, Keith Urban fans will be able to get a first-hand account, direct from Urban himself, on the making of his much anticipated fourth studio album, "Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing." The one hour special, to be made available to country radio stations nationwide, includes an exclusive interview with Urban, who speaks about the writing, the recording and the completion of songs from the album. For the one hour special, Keith will preview six songs from Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing, as well as an exclusive live performance of “Better Life” and “You’ll Think Of Me.”
The special includes an in-depth interview about the songs featured on the highly anticipated new release. When it debuted, “Once In A Lifetime,” the first single release from "Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing," became the highest chart debut (#17) for any artist since the inception of the Billboard Country Singles Chart in 1944. The song marks yet another in a line of upbeat, hits that have come to be one of Urban’s trademarks.
The program does not contain national commercials and is non-exlusive. Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing is set for release on Tuesday, November 7th. The special was recorded, of course, before Urban checked himself into rehab at his new wife, Nicole Kidman's, insistence.
