What to See at Utah’s Inaugural Troubeliever Fest

Keith Urban Hit-Maker Monty Powell Shares Songwriter Secrets

Monty Powell can’t quantify how many songs he and Keith Urban have written together.

They share eight No. 1 hits, and Powell guesses they have created, at the very least, an entire body of work for another artist. Powell has the unique experience of getting to know Urban when he was a brand-new Nashville arrival in 1993, and he is arguably a principal architect in Urban’s sound of today. While talking about his inaugural Troubeliever Fest at Utah’s Snowbasin Resort (Aug. 3-4), Powell shared two songwriting secrets that help him and Urban stay inspired in the event of writer’s block.
