Keith Urban Makes Country Music History with “Blue Ain’t Your Color”


Once again, Keith Urban has done the seemingly impossible, topping all four Billboard country music charts at once with “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” The tune sits atop the Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs charts dated January 21, 2017.

This is only the the third time in history the same song has reigned supreme on all four charts.

Unlike the two songs before it (“Burnin’ It Down” and “Play It Again”), “Blue Ain’t Your Color” is a slow, doo-woppy waltz that’s almost a reinvention of Urban and country music. But, of course– it works.

The song is the fourth single off of Urban’s Ripcord and is nominated for Best Solo Country Performance and Best Country Song at the upcoming 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Ripcord is also nominated for Best Country Album.

“Blue Ain’t Color” was written by Hillary Lindsey, Clint Lagerberg and Steven Lee Olson.
