Keith Urban dropped a new song yesterday called “Coming Home,” which probably sounds pretty familiar to many country fans. The song was inspired by Merle Haggard’s signature tune, “Mama Tried."
“’Coming Home’ started with an idea I had of using the intro of one of my favorite Haggard songs, ‘Mama Tried’ – to build an entirely new song around it,” Keith explains. “Hearing that rolling Haggard guitar lick sparked memories of my childhood – and my dream to come to America."
He adds, "I knew right then the story (of the song) was about the struggles of being in a city where your dreams have brought you, but far from your home – wherever, whomever and whatever that is for each of us.”
Take a listen below, and let me know your thoughts! Should I play it tonight?
