Fresh off an overseas tour, Keith Urban has garnered three Grammy Award nominations, including a Best Country Song nomination for Spirit Music Nashville's "Blue Ain't Your Color." The second-most nominated country singer also received nominations for Best Country Vocal Performance (for "Blue Ain't Your Color") and Best Country Album (for Ripcord).
Written by Clint Lagerberg, Hillary Lindsey and Steven Lee Olsen, "Blue Ain't Your Color" has taken country radio by storm, nearing the top of the charts by year's end. In early 2016, Spirit acquired Frank Rogers' one-third interest in certain copyrights of the respected Nashville indie publisher Sea Gayle Music, which Rogers co-founded with Chris DuBois and Brad Paisley in 1999. "Blue Ain't Your Color" is but one of the many fine copyrights that Spirit has added to it's vast catalog through the aquisition.
The 59th Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET.
