You take Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, give them a duet, and you get a dream collaboration.
Written by Nicolle Galyon, Jimmy Robbins, and Jon Nite, “We Were Us” is one of the best songs out right now and we love it.
The duet seems to be years in the making. Lambert opened for Urban on his tour back in 2005 when she was just starting out. Since then, Urban has been waiting for the perfect song to sing with Lambert. “We Were Us” was it.
“When I heard ‘We Were Us,’ it was instant,” Urban told People magazine. “I had two thoughts. The first [was] ”This is that song’ and the second – ‘Man, I sure hope she says yes!’ ”
The “We Were Us” music video premiered on Friday evening via Urban’s Facebook page. The video was filmed in front of a live audience at Edna’s neighborhood bar in Oklahoma City. Check it out below!
