Posted on: March 31st, 2015 by Chris

Keith Urban says part of the inspiration for the video for “Raise ‘Em Up” came from watching his girls play. They were jumping up and down and he was filming them in slow motion, and it’s a scene he reenacts in the video.

“We put ‘Raise ‘Em Up’ on and were watching this film of our girls and they just went together beautifully,” he says.

As for Eric Church’s favorite part of the shoot, “My favorite part of this video were the candid moments that were captured between Keith and I on film,” he says. “It’s cool that a number of those made it in the final version. To me, they really reify the emotion of the moment and experience.”

The two plan on singing the song during the 2015 ACM Awards on CBS April 19.
