Keith Urban First: He Writes a Song for a Movie

"I loved the challenge of writing for a film," Keith says.

You'd think there aren't any firsts anymore for country superstar Keith Urban.

But Keith is about to hit one: having one of his songs in a movie, a song that he wrote specifically for the film.

Keith, with co-writer Monty Powell, wrote the song "For You" for the military action movie Act of Valor, which stars real-life active-duty Navy SEALS.

“I loved the challenge of writing for a film,” Keith said in a statement.

“I’ve never done that before. After seeing Act of Valor, my co-writer and I wanted to capture the essence of not only what these men and women do so extraordinarily, but how that relates to all of us. Valor shows us what they are willing to give their all for, which made me wonder, ‘What am I willing to give my life for?’

"‘For You’ is intended to allow the listener to define who that is for them.”

That song will be available Feb. 20 at iTunes, and the movie comes out Feb. 24.
