  • Lyrics
  • This Keith Urban, Mike Elizondo and Brett James penned song pays tribute to a red-colored Chevrolet. It is one of three tracks on Keith Urban's Fuse album to have a motor vehicle in its title. (The other two are "Cop Car" and "Somewhere In My Car.")

    Urban is a car aficionado and he told ABC News Radio that he got his love for all things auto from his father. "My dad was a car-lover, so I really inherited that. My taste in cars run the gamut of all sort of eclectic things, but it's trucks, too," said the singer. "It's where I still listen to more music than anywhere … it's just a great place of sort of coming to terms with everything, you know what I mean? It's the only quiet place you can get, sometimes."
  • The Chevrolet Camaro was introduced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors on September 29, 1966 as a competitor to the Ford Mustang. The car was discontinued in 2002, but returned as a 2010 model car. Camaro is a French slang term for "friend" or "companion."
