Madonna inspired new Keith Urban single

The most distinctive musical feature of Keith Urban's Little Bit of Everything - a chopped-up ukulele pattern - may owe its existence to the Material Girl.
Urban says Madonna's Don't Tell Me, a 2001 hit that several critics felt had a country influence, inspired the part. 'She had a staccato acoustic guitar part in there that I thought was very cool,' Urban says.
Little Bit was written by pop/hip-hop artist Kevin Rudolf, known for his 2008 single Let It Rock, along with Nashville songwriters Brad and Brett Warren. The single currently sits at No. 24 on USA TODAY's Country airplay chart.
'On the demo that Kevin did, it was more of a strummed part, just a straight-up Hey Soul Sister thing,' Urban says. But when he and co-producer Nathan Chapman took the song into the studio, Chapman started laying down tracks with the ukulele.
'Nathan was playing an arpeggiated piece, which I thought was kind of cool, and then he hit the mute button accidentally and I said, 'Oh, I like that!'' Urban says.
