Keith Urban Drops First-Ever Christmas Tune, “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight” [Watch New Video]

Over the course of his three-decade career, Keith Urban has never released a Christmas song—until now. Today (Dec. 5), Keith dropped his first-ever yuletide tune, “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight,” a song he penned with Shane McAnally.

“I’ve always wanted to record a Christmas song, but I really wanted to try and write something new,” says Keith. “So, Shane came to my house and we wrote, really about a Christmas gone terribly wrong. No snow. Too much fog. Nobody can make it to the party. It’s going to be a colorless Christmas, until her man comes through.”

Keith also released a new video for “I’ll Be Your Santa Tonight,” which was directed by Chris Hicky.

“I wanted to keep the video loose and a bit more performance-based than the actual story line, because everybody has their own version of what a song should look like, so I didn’t want to touch on that too much,” says Keith.

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.”
