Hit The Ground Runnin'
Label: Capitol Nashville
Marriage and fatherhood must suit Keith Urban quite well -- Defying Gravity is reflective of a man who is content to be exactly where he is. While it can be argued that a little tension can spark creativity, there's no denying that celebratory love song "Sweet Thing" and snappy, optimistic tracks like "Standing Right in Front of You" (which bears a resemblance to the New Radicals' "You Get What You Give") and "Kiss a Girl" are contagious gems with plenty of crossover appeal. Interestingly enough, the song that sounds most like classic Urban is his cover of Radney Foster's "I'm In."
