"Put You in a Song" is about a guy's desire to write a song about the girl he adores. According to Urban, it's about a "guy in love with the unattainable girl. And the idea that the only chance that this poor guy is ever going to have to get close to the object of his affection is to put her in a song...that way he'd be able to take her with him everywhere he goes...day and night."
It debuted at #20 on CMT's Top Twenty Countdown for the week of October 8, 2010.
Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song a four-out-of-five star rating, citing it "a sing-a-long quality song that will no doubt rocket up the country radio charts." Leeann Ward of Country Universe gave the song a B+ grade, concluding her review by comparing the sound to the tracks on Urban's 2004 album Be Here, and calling it "hopeful for the upcoming album."
"Put You in a Song" debuted at number 29 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of October 2, 2010.
