Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood have released the music video for their new duet, “The Fighter.” Readers can press play below to watch.
In their “The Fighter” clip, Urban and Underwood perform the single together on a boxing ring-esque set — a darkened room lit up by a square of bright lights. Shots of the two country superstars casually performing “The Fighter” together are interspersed with clips of a dancer breaking it down late at night in a desolate urban area.
“The Fighter” is written in a call-and-response style, so it sounds as though Urban and Underwood are replying back and forth to one another in the song’s chorus. Urban says that the song came to him “pretty quickly,” and that he was inspired by “thinking about how long it’d been since I heard a song with a guy and girl actually speaking back and forth to each other.”
“It’s a song about helping to heal and protect someone you love. It’s a song about reassurance that you’ll always be there to take the blows the world can throw,” Urban adds. “Carrie and I had sung together before, and I thought our voices blended really well — so she was unquestionably the right choice. It was such a relief that she wanted to do it.”
Keith Urban received two grammy nominations for the 2017 Grammy Awards: Best Country Album for Ripcord and Best County Solo Performance for his song “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Keith said it was an honor to perform at the 2017 Grammy Awards, where he showcased his new song “The Fighter,” a duet with Carrie Underwood.
