Keith Urban Adds Eric Church To New Version Of “We Were”

Keith Urban released a brand-new version of his hit single “We Were” today featuring labelmate and friend Eric Church.  Church wrote the song with Ryan Tyndell and Jeff Hyde, and adds his own unmistakable vocals to the mid-tempo, nostalgic track, available today exclusively for streaming only at

“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 Urban. “I think this guy could be really big!!!!!”

“We Were” is Urban’s 40th Top 10 single on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart, marking another in a long line of Top 10 hits, including a record setting streak of 38 – the longest by any artist on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart.

He recently announced his European tour, his first in more than a decade, which will kick off in Amsterdam on May 2. Church, meanwhile, recently topped the charts with his reflective track “Some Of It” and is currently on the road with his Double Down Tour, featuring back-to-back nights of marathon shows in nearly 30 markets
