In the meantime, McGraw is preparing to release a new song, "Standing Room Only." He shared the first verse of the song — set to arrive on Friday, March 10 — and it's expected to be a part of a full-length album. The "Don't Take the Girl" singer mentioned he was working on new music in 2022 and at the time said he had already mixed eight songs.
Urban recently launched his new Las Vegas residency. After wrapping up a residency in 2022, Keith Urban: The Las Vegas Residency is a re-imagined show with a new stage and setlist. He has dates scattered throughout March and will pick things up again at Zappos Theater in June and July.
