Listen to Keith Urban Reminisce About Lost Love in New Single, “We Were”

Keith Urban has returned to country radio airwaves with the release of his new single, “We Were.”

Penned by Eric Church, Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndell, the new tune reminisces about lost teenage love with lyrics like “We were a couple of line steppers who just couldn’t wait to step over the line / Never thinkin’ we wouldn’t last, I was your first and you were mine.”

“When I first heard ‘We Were,’ I not only heard it, but I saw it,” says Keith. “It made me feel something. I like the idea that life just happens. At some point, in the moment or not, you just gotta go with it.”

Listen to “We Were” below.

“We Were”

We were just a couple years short of the age by my name on the fake ID
And still about a hundred away from the day your daddy said, you could run with me
We were a couple of line steppers who just couldn’t wait to step over the line
Never thinkin’ we wouldn’t last, I was your first and you were mine

Chorus:
We were leather jackets hangin’ on to a Harley, two heartbeats in the moonlight
We were both feet hangin’ out over the edge of a water tower skyline
At least there’s a little bit of sweet in the bitter though a part of me is always gonna miss her
I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

We were gonna make it, weren’t we baby
Had it all laid out in our mind
By the time we knew, time was runnin’ out, we’d done run outta time
We were a downtown Saturday night, last call, cover band
‘Til the last song played, never thought we’d fade like the stamp on the back of her hand

We were her on my shoulders, lighter in the air
Pour Some Sugar On Me
We were top down in Johnson’s field when she whispered that she wants me
At least there’s a little bit of sweet in the bitter though a part of me is always gonna miss her
I am who I am, I just miss who I was when we were

Repeat Chorus

Yes, I do
Friends say, oh well, let that ship sail, you gotta let go of her
Just wasn’t meant to be but somewhere down deep, I still believe that we were

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
