Album: Clear As DayReleased: 2011
The only cover on Clear As Day hearkens back to Keith Urban's days as lead singer of the country trio, Ranch. Co-written with Vernon Rust, it featured on their self-titled 1997 debut album and peaked at #50 on the country singles chart.
Scotty explained why Urban pitched the song for his debut album: "He thought it would be really cool for me to cut it, and when I heard it, it was a lock. It has a cool message and feel. It's just a cool song. I can picture myself rocking out to in the car driving somewhere."
Scotty revealed to The Boot
that when Keith Urban sent the song to his Universal Music Group Nashville label, he attached a message to him saying, "I think this is a great song for you, Scotty. I think you'd be great doing this. Hope you enjoy it."
