"Raise 'Em Up" is a song written by Tom Douglas, Jaren Johnston and Jeffrey Steele and recorded by New Zealand-born Australian country music singer Keith Urban as a duet with American country music singer Eric Church. It was released in January 2015 as the fifth international single, sixth overall and final single from Urban's 2013 album Fuse.
According to Urban, when he sent a demo to Church with the intent of having him serve as a duet partner on it, Church asked, "How do you write a song as good as that?" and Urban replied that he did not write the song. Regarding his own reaction to hearing the demo, Urban said that "I was floored" and added, "There's so much imagery in the song and it's written in such a way that you can fill in all the blanks. I love that kind of style of songwriting".
Billy Dukes of Taste of Country reviewed the single favorably, saying that "In barely three minutes, Urban's new single from 'Fuse' goes from a wild weekend to raising kids, all while hinting at the preciousness of time. Rarely is so much said in so little time with so much efficiency and emotion."
From Fuse liner notes.
The song has sold 250,000 copies in the US as of June 2015.
