When a Billboard reporter asked Urban for his list of the top five greatest female country acts of all time, he had a tough time narrowing it down.
But then he managed to keep going, even though he seemed to be caught off guard.
Back in April, he talked about having Underwood join him on one of the songs off his new album, saying, “I’ve always loved singing with her.”
When he was down to the very last spot on his list of female singers, he went with another powerhouse.
“I’m gonna say Martina McBride,” he says. “Incredible.”
Urban has had the honor of working with both McBride and Underwood on new projects released this year. He guests on “Diamond” from McBride’s latest album Reckless, while Underwood appears on “The Fighter,” which is on his latest album Ripcord.
