Urban accompanied their duet on the piano as he and Breland delivered a soulful rendition of the classic track. Urban’s wife, award-winning actress Nicole Kidman, sat off to the side gushing over the cover in a video that Urban shared on his social media channels. “So good singing with you! And for such a great cause,” Breland replied with a praying hands emoji.
The cover from the “Wild Hearts” artist and the singer Dierks Bentley dubbed a “rising Country hot-shot” comes after Loretta Lynn’s benefit concert. The country legend hosted the event to raise funds for flood relief following catastrophic flooding in Middle Tennessee last month. “Hometown Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Relief” took place at the Grand Ole Opry on Monday (September 13). The star-studded lineup included Urban, Breland, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire and more. “The flood that devastated our area has been awful, but love is stronger,” Lynn said when she announced the benefit concert. “I’m so grateful for my friends who are answering my call for us to all pitch in and help every way we can.”
Urban noted when he shared his cover with Breland: “if you’d still like to donate, you can text TNFLOODRELIEF to 44321.” Watch the country artists cover “Lean On Me” here:
