Country music stars Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood finally got to celebrate their hit collaboration, “The Fighter,” together! More here.

During the No. 1 party for “The Fighter,” Keith Urban shared more about the origin of his hit collaboration with fellow country music superstar, Carrie Underwood.

“‘The Fighter’ was born out of a real conversation I had with my wife [Nicole Kidman] before we got married, trying to reassure her that I was a safe place and that I would take care of her so she could remain vulnerable and didn’t have to become hardened,” Urban explained.

“…I’m saying too much, but people say you have to have thick skin…I don’t agree with that,” continued the artist. “I think you should be vulnerable and have your spirit and be real. And maybe if people would stop being so harsh—especially toward ourselves sometimes—we could be just me more of who we already are, which is pure spirit, fragile and real. Real human beings. ‘When they try to get to you, baby I’ll be the fighter’ is what that’s about.”

The party was put on over a year since the collaboration co-written by Urban and Michael James Ryan Busbee dominated the charts. It’s never too late to celebrate success, especially when the artists’ schedules are jam-packed— Keith is currently on tour and Carrie is pregnant with baby number two while also planning a tour. The pair thanked everyone who helped make “The Fighter” happen and was instrumental in making the track a chart-topper and performed the song alongside Busbee.

These young dancers show how to dance to the fighter and received recognition from Keith Urban via Instagram.

Let’s take a look back at the official music video and lyrics below!

“The Fighter” Lyrics

I know he hurt you
Made you scared of love, too scared to love
He didn’t deserve you
‘Cause you’re precious heart is a precious heart
He didn’t know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh
And it’s gonna take just a little time
But you’re gonna see that I was born to love you
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry (I’ll never make you cry)
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
Look in the mirror
You’re beautiful, so beautiful
I’m here to remind you
You’re my only one, let me be the one
To heal all the pain that he put you through
It’s a love like you never knew
Just let me show you
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry (I’ll never make you cry)
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
I wanna believe that you got me baby
I swear I do from now until the next life
I wanna love, wanna give you all my heart
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry (I’ll never make you cry)
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall
What if I cry
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
