Keith Urban might owe Madonna one big thank you gift!
The country singer’s new single Little Bit of Everything seems to have been influenced by Madge’s 2001 hit Don’t Tell Me! In a recent interview, Keith explained:
"[Madonna] had a staccato acoustic guitar part in there that I thought was very cool.”
Though, it turns out his song — written by Kevin Rudolf and Brad and Brett Warren — and the Madonna-influenced section underwent some changes in the studio. Keith added:
"On the demo that Kevin did, it was more of a strummed part, just a straight-up Hey Soul Sister thing.”
Things turned around when co-producer Nathan Chapman brought in the ukulele:
"Nathan was playing an arpeggiated piece, which I thought was kind of cool, and then he hit the mute button accidentally and I said, 'Oh, I like that!'"
Listen to both songs (below) and see if you can spot the similarity!!
Wonder what Madonna will think of this!!
