Hi everybody. What a phenomenal year this has been. As we come to the end of 2012 and the new year is yet to explode open..AND IT WILL!!..I thought I'd attempt to single out some songs that I really loved this year for all kinds of reasons! Impossible to narrow it down to 12 without leaving out equally great songs for 2012....BUT in no specific order, here we go!! 12 songs that lodged in my head and inspired me this year!!

  • Springsteen (Eric Church)
  • Somebody That I Used To Know (Goyte)

As you can see Keith Urban is pretty hip with his music selection, picking some of the most popular songs across genres.  I'll even admit, I haven't heard a few of them and I was a little surprised.  Here's to a great 2013 Keith!
