“It comes from a very real place,” said Urban. “It’s a song about helping to heal and protect someone you love. It’s a song about reassurance that you’ll always be there to take the blows the world can throw. Carrie and I had sung together before and I thought our voices blended really well – so she was unquestionably the right choice. It was such a relief that she wanted to do it.”
“I loved the song when I first heard it and was excited to work with Keith on new music,” said Underwood. “I had such a great time touring Australia and New Zealand with him in December, and can’t wait to perform “The Fighter” on The GRAMMY’S!”
Urban and Underwood will perform “The Fighter” on Sunday, February 12, at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
