The collaboration between Keith Urban and Lainey Wilson started with a text

Keith Urban‘s record with Laine Wilson, “Go Home WU” was officially released today (5-3) and it all started with a lyric. Keith posted their text thread on his socials.

In April last year, she got a text from Keith that said, “Hey Lainey, it’s Keith here. I hope you’re well. Would you like to sing one of my songs if it suits you?! It’s been on my mind for a while now, which I think you’d like… and I’d love to hear from you more.” The lyrics followed with “It be on the chorus… and various bits and pieces… a chill bar sing-along vibe.”

Lainey responded by asking if he would send her the song and thanked him for thinking of her.
Kees said Taste of the country, that the song was recorded last June.
