This past Sunday night (4/7) during the 54th Annual Academy Of Country Music Awards, there were many great performances but there was one performance that literally made me stop to pay attention! I was half watching the ACM's when Keith Urban took the stage and began singing a song that not only caught my attention but gave me the goose-bumps!!! The song "Burden" which is written by Irish musician Foy Vance, and featured on his 2016 album "The Wild Swan". Urban said this song "had a profound and immediate effect" when he first heard it! Although it is unclear whether or not he will include the song on his next album, he officially sent his recorded version of the uplifting tune to streaming services. Scroll down to hear Keith's version and share with us what you think about it.
After hearing Keith's version of this song I did a little "background check" on the original artist Foy Vance and I have to say I have become a fan!! Listen to the original version of "Burden" here
