Keith Urban 1999 Album
Keith Urban (also known as Keith Urban II) is the second studio album by New Zealand country music artist Keith Urban. It was released on 19 October 1999 via Capitol Nashville.
Before this album, Urban recorded a self-titled album in Australia in 1991 and another in the US as a member of the short-lived band The Ranch. The US album is Urban's breakthrough album, as it produced four singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. In order of release, the singles were "It's a Love Thing" (number 18), "Your Everything" (number 4), "But for the Grace of God" (number 1), and "Where the Blacktop Ends" (number 3). It has sold 980,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The track "A Little Luck of Our Own" was originally titled "Luck of Our Own" as first recorded by American singer and songwriter Dale Daniel on her 1993 album of the same name. This is Urban's only album to not be produced by Dann Huff, who has produced all his albums since. While Urban's contemporaries, Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney, started with a neotraditional country sound before developing a crossover-friendly country pop sound, Keith had a crossover-friendly country pop sound from the very beginning.
