Urban drops "Street Called Main" video
Friday, November 18, 2022
– A music video for Keith Urban's new song "Street Called Main" is now out.
The video, shot in Portland, Tenn., marks the first time that director Justin Key and Urban have worked together on a music video.
Urban said, "It's pure, open road with the windows down, feel-good as it gets."
"Some memories are triggered by the simplest of things, like finding yourself anywhere in the world – even on a 'street called main' – and suddenly 'she' comes flooding back."
Urban, who has been working on a new album slated for release in 2023, recorded "Main" in Nashville with longtime co-producer Dann Huff. He will wrap The Speed of NowWorld Tour 2022 in Australia next month.
Urban's current radio single is "Brown Eyes Baby."

Opener "Coming Home" may borrow (steal?) a guitar riff from Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried," but this is where that country road begins and ends.
Urban follows "Coming Home" with "Never Comin' Down," which is introduced with a funky bass line ...
Even though Keith Urban's single, "Wasted Time," borrows more than a little sonic sensibility from electronic music, there's still an upfront banjo solo. And this is how it's always been with Urban. He may play the part of the guitar hero at times, and even revealed his eclectic musical knowledge as a judge on American Idol, but Urban will always be a country boy at heart. And boyish good looks and talent have taken this country boy far, too.
The wonderfully titled ...
