Trends: A Winning Streak For Keith Urban

Keith Urban should be awaiting the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards with some expectation: he’s been nominated for Best Male Country Vocal Performance, an award he’s won three times before. Trends is looking at the nominees in the run up, and Urban’s pattern of wins seems to put him ahead of his peers. We’re looking at his scrobbles to see any other indicators of how he might do.

keithurbantrend Trends: A Winning Streak For Keith UrbanHe’s been nominated for “‘Til Summer Comes Around,” released on Defying Gravity alongside “Sweet Thing”, his 2009 winning song.

It’s not yet as popular as previous singles, and certainly can’t match up to 2005 winner “You’ll Think Of Me”, which has a total of 367,426 scrobbles from 87,711 listeners. The Recent Listening Trend doesn’t suggest a pre-Grammy uptick yet, but as part of a large catalogue, it’s less likely to be affected by hype.

As a strong performer on both Hot Country Songs and the Billboard Hot 100, Urban doesn’t seem to have lost any of his touch – but does this track really stand out? Trends is bringing you news and profiles for Grammy nominees over the next few weeks, and you can catch the ceremony on Feb. 13 on CBS.

    I love this song – I have it on repeat in the car, the kitchen .. everywhere in the house. I found it on U Tube when looking for something else and have gone on to buy the CD plus 3 other Keith Urban cds. He’s a wonderful performer and seems like a fab guy.

    It’s a wonderful song!!! I feel the radio edit didn’t show Keith Urban’s talent as much as the CD version! It is a vocal and guitar masterpiece!!!

  7. Gloria says:

    It definitely stands out to me!! One of his very best! This song did not get to #1 and I really don’t understand and neither do some music critics. It’s a bluesy song with outstanding guitar work. It’s a better song, to me, than any song nominated with it in the country genre!
