Keith Urban Covers Taylor Swift’s ‘You Need to Calm Down’ During Human Jukebox Session
Keith Urban is a Taylor Swift fan who keeps up with her songs for the most part. The "We Were" singer did another live human jukebox video on Facebook on Wednesday (Aug. 7) and tried to cover "You Need to Calm Down," the country-turned-pop-star's newest hit.
It went alright. Urban's Swift cover came out of a cover of a Katy Perry song and was the only song that wasn't requested by fans watching him live. The beat and chords were there, and Urban knew most of the chorus. His version includes a confession that he wasn't totally sure what Swift's lyrics are, but hey, at least we know it's really live!

Urban also performed "Long Hot Summer" and "Blue Ain't Your Color" during the off-the-cuff live stream filmed at Skeye Studios in Australia. This is the second time the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year has offered a human jukebox special. Fans clearly appreciate his willingness to try just about anything they suggest.
Urban has a little break from the road before picking his tour up once again on Aug. 16. "We Were" is a new song from an unannounced and unspecified project. Talking to Taste of Country in June he shared that he has no timetable for a new album, the follow-up to Graffiti U. That album featured collaborations with Lindsay Ell, Kassi Ashton and Julia Michaels.
