Keith Urban paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday evening (March 5) to perform his brand new single, “God Whispered Your Name.”

Prior to his performance, the superstar sat down with Colbert to chat about a variety of topics, including his first concert.

Recalling how his parents took him to see Johnny Cash when he was just five years old, Urban went on to share the story behind his daughters’ first concert.

“We took them to see, ya know the Kidz Bop thing that tours around,” he told Colbert with a laugh. “They [Sunday and Faith] were like 5 and 3 or something. We all went in, all four of us. It was at The Ryman Auditorium. We were in the balcony. The Kidz Bop band comes out and they were rocking out all the cover songs.”

“At one point,’ he adds, “I looked over and our two girls were leaning over the balcony like this…headbanging. It was awesome.”

Urban, who is set to host this year’s ACM Awards, later took the stage for the television debut of “God Whispered Your Name.” The mid-tempo song, written by James Slater, Shy Carter, Micah Carter and Chris August, finds the country music superstar and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year leaning on his spiritual side and praising his better half for being there for him during the dark times. The aid of his true love helps him heal and find a new perspective in the tune, enough to become a changed man.

Check out his performance below.
