2010 album from the Country superstar. Get Closer follows #1 Defying Gravity album, which produced two #1 singles including "Only You Can Love Me This Way" and "Sweet Thing", for which Urban won his third Grammy Award (Best Male Country Vocal Performance). "I've always loved songs about `the guy in love with the unattainable girl', said Urban of "Put You In A Song", the debut single from Get Closer. "And the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song, just struck me. That way he'd be able to take her with him everywhere he goes...day and night."

It seems that the current trend is one where artists (such as Blake Shelton with All About Tonight) release shorter albums with fewer cuts/tracks on them and then get back to work on getting the next album ready for release in a relatively short time span. Doing so allows the artists to keep themselves current and fresh in the public's mind, and also gives them multiple opportunities to dip into customer's pockets to get paid for their work. That's part of the beauty of the system we have, and I actually appreciate that. Again, as long as the work is of sufficient quality, I'll happily buy the smaller collection (assuming it was priced fairly) and be ready to buy more later.
Just to drive the point home one more time, it's the songs, and the songs in this album are very good. The current radio rotation (at the time I write this) tune Put You in a Song is one that is just plain fun to listen to, and really the rest of the collection is just as good.
One item of note - if you are a user of the i-type products you should be aware that the "+Digital Booklet" will not appear in your music collection, instead, if you buy the version here you'll have an e-book added to your library and will need to look there (assuming you select it to sync to your device) for the digital booklet. I wish that the intregration was better in this area, but the pricing was better for this version as opposed to places where one might obtain other tunes, so living with that constraint isn't that tough.
As I've tended to say lately, sample the tracks and see for yourself what you think of this album. Worst case, you can buy the individual tracks that you like, best case you get 8 tracks at what most people would acknowledge is a pretty fair price.
Please pick up this CD now. It makes a great stocking stuffer for the holiday. Plus treat yourself to the extended version(only available at Target stores) gives you 3 additional songs & 4 live tracks(which include "Better Life" & "Everybody"). Grab it today. You'll thank me for it later!
Not only does Keith have a great voice, write great lyrics and songs and record other songwriters' great songs and sing them with such conviction, it sounds like he wrote them, but he is also the most beautiful person inside too.
Nicole is one lucky lady and I believe so is Keith to have found Nicole. They appear to be a match made in heaven whenever you see them together.
I think it would be very difficult to find another artist who is as giving of himself live in concert. All of his great values shine through everything he sings and are the reason he is so successful. My highest recommendation possible.
Great job Keith!!!!
