Keith Urban Only Recently Began Calling Himself A Songwriter

 For years Keith Urban refrained from calling himself a “songwriter,” the four-time Grammy award winner is just now getting comfortable with the title.  During a cover story for Rolling Stone Australia, the singer said he’s heard, ‘Well you sure write a lot of songs for someone who isn’t a songwriter’ plenty of times.  “For the longest time I would say to myself, I’m not really a songwriter. I’m a guitar player blah blah blah,” he said. “[…] In the last year or two I’ve pivoted to saying, ‘Well I love writing songs.’” Urban’s songwriting definitely hasn’t gone unnoticed by his peers, Taylor Swift said “he redefined the genre for me.”

The “Evermore” singer said, “His melodies and inflections influenced me so intensely because they were so different from what I was hearing in-country at that time, incorporating rock, pop, and blues into the mix.”
