"Stupid Boy" is a song written by Dave Berg, Deanna Bryant, and Sarah Buxton. Originally recorded by Buxton, the song was later recorded by Australian country music singer Keith Urban on his 2006 album Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing. Urban's version was released as that album's second single in December 2006 and peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. A year after its release, Urban won a Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance of the song.

History

Urban told Billboard that he recorded "Stupid Boy" at the suggestion of his wife, actress Nicole Kidman.[1] He also noted how the song's subject matter contrasted with the more up-tempo love song "Once in a Lifetime," the album's first single, saying that the two songs were "yin and yang."[1]Sarah Buxton, who co-wrote the song, recorded a version before Urban did.[1] This version was included on a 2007 extended play entitled Almost My Record as well as Buxton's 2010 self-titled album.

Critical reception

Tamara Conniff and Ray Waddell of Billboard described the song as "a ballad on how men foolishly break the hearts of the women they love."[1]Associated Press reviewer Michael McCall called it "a funky, witty take on a guy who can't appreciate how good he has it."[2]

In 2008, the song won Urban a Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance.[3]
