Keith Urban Performs Piano Mashup of ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’ and ‘The Fighter’ [Watch]
Keith Urban offers fans a special treat with a beautiful mashup of his two hits, "Blue Ain't Your Color" and "The Fighter."
Sitting at a piano in a white T-shirt, Urban offers a poignant performance of the two tracks. He kicks it off with a passionate delivery on "The Fighter" before diving into an equally spirited performance of his most recent No. 1 hit, "Blue Ain't Your Color." It's clear he's having fun, smiling all the way through and delivering strong vocals as he shows off his impressive skills on the piano. "Thank you, everybody, for loving Ripcord," he says at the end of the performance.
Urban performed "The Fighter," the fifth single off the chart-topping album featuring Carrie Underwood, at the 2017 Grammy Awards with his fellow country superstar. "Blue Ain't Your Color" made quite an impression on the country charts in 2016, topping Billboard's Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts. It was also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song at the Grammys.
