Some Days You Gotta Dance

Album: Fly (1999)
Charted: 55
  • This Troy Johnson and Marshall Morgan penned song was released by the Dixie Chicks as the eighth and final single from their Fly album. The song peaked at #7 on the Country chart and #55 on the Hot 100.
  • The song was previously recorded by The Ranch, a short-lived Country trio founded by Keith Urban for their eponymous 1997 album. Urban played guitar on the Dixie Chicks' rendition, but he kept the female trio waiting. The Australian country star recalled to Rolling Stone: "I got on a bit of a three-day bender and couldn't come to the session and had to call them and tell them I'm going to be a bit late. Then I would call them and say I'm going to be a bit later. And then I would call them and be a bit later. And I completely missed the session. I lived like a street away. It was ridiculous. I could have walked there with my guitar in hand and I couldn't make it. I remember just feeling so ashamed and disgusted at myself. I finally [showed up] the next day."

    "I think they brought in another guitarist that ghosted my playing, so I think there are two players on there," Urban added. "I'm not sure how much of mine actually ended up on there."
