Greatest Hits ~ Keith Urban
Greatest Hits ~ Keith Urban
I'm no great fan of country music, but Keith Urban is an exceptional talent, an excellent guitar player, an incredible singer/songwriter, with feel good/thought provoking songs that we can all relate to. If you like Lonestar and Ryan Adams, you'll thoroughly enjoy the music here.

My favourite track on here will always be 'Shotgun', which I played to death as a child when I owned it on a cassette compilation of country hits, strangely enough, it wasn't even issued as a single, so it seems quite odd that it was included on a 'hits' tape, but I'm glad it was, as this brilliant song first introduced me to Tanya's music.

The tracks which were released as singles, 'Walking Shoes', 'Don't Go… Read more
