Keith Urban Tears Into Elvis Presley’s ‘Burning Love’ [Watch]
Keith Urban took on Elvis Presley's classic "Burning Love" during the Elvis All-Star Tribute Sunday night (Feb. 17) on NBC.
Entertainment Tonight premiered the clip ahead of the broadcasted special, and it shows Urban ripping his signature electric guitar to the classic hit. The crowd, of course, loved it.
Urban also collaborated with Post Malone on "Baby, What You Want Me to Do." The reactions on social media were positive — if not a little bit confused about the pairing of the two artists.
Ahead of the performance, Urban spoke to the press, saying, "'Burning Love' wasn't on the 68' Comeback Special, but I've always loved this song. Dennis Linde was the writer of it and I'm a big Dennis Linde fan as well as Elvis so it was a no-brainer for me. Although I've never done it before so nothing like jumping in the deep end, I'd do it on the Elvis special for the first time."
Besides the new takes on Presley's classic hits, the 2019 Elvis All-Star Tribute also featured exclusive interviews with Presley's family and work colleagues along with exclusive video footage never aired before.
Also on hand to perform Presley classics: Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Pistol Annies, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker, Alessia Cara, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, John Fogerty, Mac Davis and Adam Lambert.
Elvis All-Star Tribute was not only meant for television, but will also become an album, which you can purchase now. Besides the new covers recreated by the artists, the album will also feature 15 remastered performances from Presley himself.
