Keith Urban Pulls the “Ripcord” for His Eighth Album


Keith Urban’s eighth studio album will be titled Ripcord. The project’s first single, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” already topped the charts, becoming the Aussie superstar’s 19th number one. Its second release, “Break on Me,” was the most-added single at country radio last week.

Next week, Keith is set to perform on the 49th Annual CMA Awards alongside John Mellencamp, though it’s not known if he’ll sing on the chart-topping tune that namechecks him. You can see the show live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena November 4 at 8 p.m. ET.

There’s no word yet on Ripcord’s release date.
