Watch Keith Urban Recruit the Grand Ole Opry Crowd for Epic Rendition of ‘The Fighter’

During his recent visit to the Grand Ole Opry, Keith Urban decided to mix things up for his performance of “The Fighter.”

The track featuring Carrie Underwood is still rapidly climbing up the country charts. The infectious, pop-leaning hook and sweet lyrics have quickly won over listeners. But does the track work without the feisty vocals from Underwood? Urban decided to tackle the challenge of going solo by recruiting audience members to keep the rhythm going.

Watch it all unfold on the Grand Ole Opry stage below.

I have to give props to the Opry crowd for staying on beat and in tune. It helps that “The Fighter” is one of Urban’s catchiest tunes to date and is made for a great singalong. The performance also proves that the song is a good duet because it shows off both voices equally, instead of relying on one person to carry the track.
