Keith Urban debuted a new song, “Burden,” during the ACM Awards on April 7.
Penned by Irish singer/songwriter Foy Vance, the tune had a profound impact on Keith when he heard it the first time.
“I was riding my bicycle, and I just stopped,” Keith said to the Tennessean. “It went right into the center of me. I got back to Nashville and thought I’d love to capture how I feel about this song if I can, and here we are tonight.”
