There's a rumor going around that Keith Urban is on the verge of releasing an old song of his. A song from his 2002 album, Golden Road. It's called "You Look Good in My Shirt," and is one of the songs that inspires full-on crowd frenzy when he plays it live. (That could have something to do with the fact that he usually goes on a little field trip into the seats and sings it from there ... but still.) But it really is a good light-hearted banjo song, about hooking up with an ex-girlfriend.

The Urban legend is that fans called radio request lines so much to play it back when Golden Road was out, and that he was about to release it as a single. By then, though, the Be Here album was ready. And then his hits just kept on coming. So if this new rumor is true, it makes me wonder why now? Why go back there after all these years? Maybe Urban has an intuitive side that's just telling him to give fans what they want.

Every artist has that one song that stands out during their shows: Miranda Lambert does a mean "Dry Town," Kenny Chesney pulls out his sultry side for Conway Twitty's "I'd Just Love to Lay You Down," Toby Keith has a little Middle Eastern peace tune called "The Taliban Song," and Tim McGraw pours every ounce of his appreciation for Hank Williams (and David Allan Coe) into his live version of "The Ride." Songs like those, that turn a dull applause into a cranked-up hoot and holler, might not always be cut out for radio airplay. But Urban's shirt song, if he goes ahead with the alleged plan, will climb the charts as fast as his other hits have. And who knows? It may move other artists to go back through their old albums and release the singles that never were.

A little more good news about the live DVD below too. [joy]

Keith Urban's 'You Look Good In My Shirt' Looking Good To Radio

Nashville, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Keith Urban Official Website) - "Over the years it ("Shirt") has always played like a hit song," said Urban. "That, combined with numerous requests from both fans and radio about why it was never a single, inspired us to get back into the studio and re-record the song."
"You Look Good In My Shirt" first appeared on Urban's breakout 3x platinum recording Golden Road. But plans to release the song as that CD's 5th single were scrapped when "Days Go By," the first single from the follow up CD Be Here was ready.
That song proved to be another of Urban's No 1s.

"Shirt's" catchy guitar riff, blazing solo and anthemic vocals are never more apparent than during a Keith Urban concert, which presented a challenge during the re-recording process. "The trick for this song was to bring all of the live energy to the new recording," added Urban. "I think that we accomplished that and I'm glad that we finally have the opportunity to give everyone what they've been asking for."

The song is set to hit radio airwaves next week as a pre-cursor to the as-of-yet untitled "Love, Pain & the whole crazy World Tour" concert DVD release this Fall. Urban is currently writing for a new CD to hit sometime in '09.

Review: Keith Urban, “You Look Good In My Shirt”
Posted May 29, 2008 by Leeann
Categories: Single Reviews

In an unconventional move, Keith Urban has chosen to release a song from his second album, Golden Road, rather than a new song from an upcoming album. While people could easily go back and listen to the original version that already exists on that CD, Urban is, apparently, giving us the chance to hear this fan favorite on the radio as well. Nevertheless, “You Look Good In My Shirt” is a catchy, up-tempo song that possesses just the right energy and Urban charisma to cause people to crank up their stereos.

A couple reconnects by spending the night together after a break up for an unknown reason. While he admits that he cannot guarantee that their differences won’t resurface at some point, he does not regret that she has spent the night: “Well now I’m not saying that we solved overnight/Every way that we went wrong/Oh, but what I’m seeing I’d sure love seeing/Every morning from now on/And maybe it’s a little too early/To know if this is gonna work/All I know is you’re sure looking good in my shirt.”

Okay, it’s a silly song, but one that I’m happy to add to my playlist.
