Drop Top

Album: Graffiti U (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Keith Urban singing of a free-spirited girl with feathers in her hair, who loves driving with her drop top down. The track is a duet with Missouri, California native Kassi Ashton, who records country music with a soul twist.
  • Urban told Taste of Country that when he was looking for somebody to collaborate on the song, he had something very specific in mind.

    "I said, 'Whoever the girl is, she's gotta have the right voice, she's gotta have the right attitude, she's gotta have swagger,'" he explained. "Legit, not faux swagger. The real deal."

    Urban found what he was looking for in Kassi Ashton.
