About this album

Be Here is the fourth solo album by New Zealand-born Australian country singer Keith Urban.
The album produced three #1 singles on the Hot Country Songs charts: “Days Go By”, “Making Memories of Us” and “Better Life”, as well as the #2 hits “You’re My Better Half” and “Tonight I Wanna Cry”; “Live to Love Another Day” also peaked at #48 on the country charts without being released to radio.

“Making Memories of Us”, written by Rodney Crowell, was originally recorded by Tracy Byrd on his 2003 album The Truth About Men. It was also recorded by Crowell himself, along with his backing band The Notorious Cherry Bombs, on their 2004 self-titled album.

Nine of the album’s songs were penned by Urban. The album achieved 3× Multi-Platinum RIAA certification for sales of three million copies in the U.S.; it also reached #8 on the Canadian album chart, #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums chart and #3 on the Billboard 200.

    This song is a song of promise. It is beautiful and real, however when promises are not kept this song can leave a deep and painful wound; a reminder of what could have been. I still love it.
