2011 CMT Music Awards - Arrivals

[photogallerylink id=59942 align=right] Last week I told you that[lastfm link_type=""] Scotty McCreery[/lastfm]‘s new album, ‘Clear as Day,’ had a [lastfm link_type=""]Keith Urban[/lastfm] song on it.  The song didn’t do that well, honestly, for Keith, but he thinks it could for Scotty.

The American Idol winner says that Keith pitched him a song called ‘Walkin’ in the Country’ from his days with The Ranch. The song barely made it anywhere for Urban, but the thought it would be a good one for Scotty. McCreery says:  ”He said, ‘I think this would be great for Scotty,’ so we took a listen to it.”  There was a delicious rumor that Urban might be able to add his guitar to the recording, but that didn’t work out. “We didn’t [record 'Walkin' the Country'] during the first five [songs] we cut in Nashville. I think if we would have, maybe Keith might have been able to play guitar on the track, but now he’s on tour, kind of like we are. It’s tough for me to stop and catch my breath on tour, so I’m sure it would be really tough for him to do that.”  In case you were wondering The Ranch was a trio that Urban formed over 13 years ago.  They broke up after one album a year later.
