– Keith Urban gives his fans a look at his Get Closer 2011 World Tour with the release of his newest video for Your Gonna Fly.
The video begins airing today on CMT and GAC.
The song is the fourth single from "Get Closer" and is the follow-up to his previous consecutive ones Long Hot Summer and Without You. The single is currently seven on the Billboard/BDS chart and six on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.
"We had cameras rolling every night on tour, which is a great way for us to capture all of those unpredictable things that seem to happen at our shows," said Urban. "In a way, the video is also a huge thank you to everyone that came out and made it so insanely fun night after night."
Urban's Get Closer 2011 World Tour played to more than a half a million fans throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia.
