How Keith Urban learned about America

Keith Urban didn’t write his latest hit “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16”, but he very easily could have. In a new interview, Keith says he grew up immersed in John Mellencamp’s music, and that’re pretty much how he learned about America while growing up Down Under. He tells “Billboard”, quote, “His songwriting was such a huge part of my life…I almost feel like between all the TV I grew up with in Australia and John Mellencamp’s music…among many others…I knew what it meant to live [in America] and grow up there.”
