Spirit joined the Nashville music community in celebrating the 2-week #1 smash "Blue Ain't Your Color" at The Basement East on Friday afternoon. This marks Urban’s 22nd career #1. Nominated for Country Song of the Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards, "Blue Ain't Your Color" is also nominated for Song of the Year and Single Record of the Year at this year's ACM Awards.
In keeping with tradition, the songwriters joined Urban on stage to perform the song and kick off the event. Written by Clint Lagerberg, Hillary Lindsey and Steven Lee Olsen, "Blue Ain't Your Color" began the year at the top of the Country radio charts for two weeks. 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.
