Right on Back to You

Album: Get Closer (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Urban co-wrote this song with American songwriter, arranger and record producer Darrell Brown, whose other credits include Josh Turner's hit "Why Don't We Just Dance."
  • Urban discussed this song with The Boot: "This wasn't just a case of recording a song imagining it being played in the car, but actually putting the guy in the car listening to the song. I think there's a lot of personal discovery in driving, and it can be a very cathartic experience to go on a long drive, having that isolation and time to think. I love cars and driving, and I love touching upon those themes whenever I can in songs."
