Keith Urban took a different approach to his “Blue Ain’t Your Color” performance during the 2017 CMT Artists of the Year program by adding jazz influences to the tune.

During Wednesday night’s 2017 CMT Artists of the Year program, honoree Keith Urban took to the stage with a small band to perform a jazz-infused version of his hit song “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Enjoy this mellow version complete with piano, bass, drums, and trumpet below!

“I love you, baby,” Keith directed to his wife, Nicole Kidman, who was in the audience. As per usual, Keith and Nicole brought their adorable chemistry to the event’s red carpet.

“Blue Ain’t Your Color” Lyrics

I can see you over there
Starring at your drink
Watchin’ that ice sink
All alone tonight

And chances are
You’re sittin’ here in this bar
‘Cause he ain’t gonna treat you right
Well, it’s probably not my place
But I’m gonna say it anyway
‘Cause you look like
You haven’t felt the fire
Had a little fun
Hadn’t had a smile in a little while
Baby

Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color

I’m not tryna
Be another just
Pick you up
Kinda guy
Tryna drink you up
Tryna take you home
But I just don’t understand
How another man
Can take your sun
And turn it ice cold

Well, I’ve had enough to drink
And it’s makin’
Me think that I just might
Tell you if I were a painter I wouldn’t change ya
I’d just paint you bright
Baby

‘Cause blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color
No no no
Blue ain’t your colour baby
Blue looks good on the sky
Looks good on that neon buzzin’ on the wall
But darling, it don’t match your eyes
I’m tellin’ you
You don’t need that guy
It’s so black and white
He’s stealin’ your thunder
Baby, blue ain’t your color

Blue ain’t your color, umm mm
No, no baby
Call me baby
Let me light up your world

Share Keith’s stunning performance with other fans of the star!
