Keith Urban is taking his music to the big screen. He co-wrote “For You,” with pal Monty Powell for the new Navy SEAL action thriller, Act of Valor. The song, which will be featured during the film’s end credits, marking the first time the singer has written and recorded a song specifically for a movie. “I loved the challenge of writing for a film,” Keith said in a statement. “I’ve never done that before. After seeing Act Of Valor, my co-writer and I wanted to capture the essence of not only what these men and women do so extraordinarily [well], but how that relates to all of us. ‘Valor‘ shows us what they are willing to give their all for, which made me wonder, ‘What am I willing to give my life for?’” Act of Valor, which stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs along with Roselyn Sanchez, Jason Cottle and Nestor Serrano, will hit theaters nationwide February 24th, while the soundtrack is set for release February 21st.
Keith is currently scaling the country singles charts with his latest, “You Gonna Fly.”

Keith Urban (acting) OC: …my music. :15
“I was actually in a theater group when I was a kid for about three years. We did quite a few stage productions, which was really my starting board for learning how to perform on stage. So, I’d love to do some of that down the track. I wouldn’t want it to interfere with my music.”
