By now we’re sure you’ve seen Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood‘s show-stopping performance of their duet “The Fighter” at the ACM Awards. The duo’s performance was arguably one of the best of the night, just as everyone expected. 

“The Fighter” has been taking country music by storm lately. On February 15, Urban and Underwood debuted the fun-loving music video for the tune, and fans couldn’t get enough. As of press time, that video has well over six million views. That’s impressive considering that it has only been out for a little more than a month!

But long before the music video was released, it was a different video of “The Fighter” that went viral. That video was filmed months ago between Urban and his wife Nicole Kidman, and “The Fighter” wasn’t even a single then. 

The cute video shows Urban and Kidman lip-syncing along to the tune, with Kidman taking on Underwood’s part. It turns out that Kidman’s role in the success of “The Fighter” is a fitting one, since Urban actually wrote it with her in mind.

Urban has opened up about his inspiration behind “The Fighter” on several occasions, as he did during an interview with ET in February:

“It’s a song about protecting the one you love, so that they don’t have to take the blows of the world, and can stay pure…it’s kind of nice when someone can take the blows for the one you love. That’s what the song’s about.”

While walking the red carpet together at the ACMs, Kidman was asked how she felt when she learned that Urban wrote “The Fighter” about her. She admitted that she couldn’t help but cry when he told her.

“I remember when he first played it for me, and I started to cry because…he writes these things – they come out of I don’t know – and they’re like beautiful gifts,” she said.

How sweet is that? Now the song that Urban wrote for his beautiful wife is one of the biggest hits in country music!
