Actress Amber Valletta to Star in Keith Urban’s ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’ Video
Supermodel and actress Amber Valletta will be the one who is blue in the upcoming music video for Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” The singer shared that despite the song’s colorful title, it will actually be a stylized black and white video.
Carter Smith directed the video, which will be released soon. Valleta has recently appeared in television shows like ABC's Blood & Oil. She’s also been a successful model for nearly two decades. During a press conference to discuss his No. 1 hit song “Break on Me” Urban said that he thought the song sounded fresh, but didn’t want it to sound too much like a waltz.
“I wanted to try to mess with that a little bit,” he said of the song's time signature. “(You) don’t usually have machinery in a waltz unless you have a cheap-ass organ.”
"Blue Ain't Your Color" is the fourth single from Ripcord, the follow-up to three straight No. 1 hits. "Break on Me" was a ballad penned by Jon Nite and Ross Copperman. The singer says he's heard plenty of stories of how fans have been affected by the ballad; most come from car rides. While he enjoys testing out new songs in the car, he said he fell for "Break on Me" by just walking around his house strumming the song.
Ripcord Tour opener Maren Morris has covered "Blue Ain't Your Color," and Urban says he'd love to hear her sing "Break on Me" as well. The duo come together to sing "We Were Us" on the road.
