GREATEST HITS: 19 KIDS is a slightly expanded version of the similarly named GREATEST HITS: 18 KIDS, originally released in the fall of 2007. This version adds Urban's 2008 single, "You Look Good In My Shirt," but is otherwise identical to the original release, down to the cover art. Highlights include a solid version of Steve Forbert's 1979 hit, "Romeo's Tune," and a remake of "Got It Right This Time (A Celebration)," a song originally written for his marriage to actress Nicole Kidman.
Personnel: Keith Urban (vocals, electric guitar, slide guitar, banjo, piano, Fender Rhodes piano, background vocals).
Audio Mixer: Justin Niebank.
Released following a string of personal problems that landed the formerly clean-cut Australian cowboy on the pages of gossip magazines the world over, GREATEST HITS was a chance for Keith Urban to sweep the decks and start fresh. This 18-track anthology contains all Urban's hit singles and a pair of new songs, a full-band remake of the previously solo tune "Got It Right This Time (The Celebration)," and a swell banjo-powered cover of Steve Forbert's late-1970s soft-rock masterpiece, "Romeo's Tune."
Urban has long been one of the few contemporary Nashville country stars whose taste for old-fashioned rock seems genuine, as proven by many of the earlier hits found here. Highlights include the sly "Who Wouldn't Wanna Be Me" and the wistful "Where the Blacktop Ends." GREATEST HITS was also released in a special limited-edition version that includes a bonus DVD of live tracks and music videos.
