"The reason I Love country music is because we have songwriters like @nicatnitemusic @shanemcanally and @rosscopperman who write lyrical and brilliant truth and artists like @keithurbanwho are bold enough to put it out into the world. bowing down to this one," she wrote.

Urban recently revealed that he added even more girl power to the song with Galyon and his wife Nicole Kidman, on backing vocals.


"I thought it was nice and very personal to blend these girls into the song," Urban said at the CMA Awards in Nashville last week, via The Boot, "because it just felt very right for what the song means to me."
