Fresh off their performance at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood fans have been craving more of their current hit, “The Fighter.”
Well, crave no more country fans.
Keith recently unveiled a new take on the video, featuring solely the talents of dancers Lindsay Richardson and Lyle Beniga, two people who certainly catch the vibe of the song. And if you are impressed by their skills, it’s not surprising. The two have worked with superstars such as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Usher and Jennifer Lopez in the past.
“[Director] John Urbano said, ‘I know this girl who dances, sort of street dancing,” said Keith in a recent press release. “I don’t even know what it is, but it was so good and John said ‘listen to the song and watch her dance at the same time’ and they just went together so incredibly well that we decided to put out a full ‘dancer’s version.'”
The video serves as yet another example of Keith’s widespread appeal with all sorts of fans, considering that his current album “Ripcord” debuted simultaneously at No. 1 in three countries, making him the only male solo country artist to reach such an impressive mark, according to a release.
