Every time Keith Urban releases a new album, it creates a mark on the charts. This would imply Keith’s established name in the music industry as one of the valued artists. Whether his song is an upbeat tempo or a ballad, the audience can’t help to be caught by the rhythm and find themselves singing or playing his song from time to time.

On July 25, 2005, Keith released a song that would become his seventh number one hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs. It spent six glorious weeks at that position. Also, it reached the 44th spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Keith himself wrote the song with Richard Marx, an American multi-talented man, who has sold over 30 million records. The banjo instrument drives the upbeat tempo of the song, accompanied by a distinctive drum pattern. And of course, Urban’s electric guitar completes the musical set.

We’re headed for a “Better Life”

Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
Good luck’s gonna shine
Someday, baby
You and I are gonna be the ones
So hold on, we’re headed for a better life
