Starting today, you can get a deluxe edition of Keith Urban‘s album Get Closer on iTunes, which includes three new studio tracks and four live recordings from his “Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing” World Tour.

This week, the track “Georgia Woods” from Get Closer is featured as the iTunes’ free download of the week. The song was written by Keith and Darrell Brown – and was originally written on Waylon Jennings‘ guitar, of which Keith is the current owner. “I wanted to use the guitar on some writing sessions and the riff that starts ‘Georgia Woods’ came straight out of that guitar,” he explains. “It’s like playing a holy grail.”

Keith recently debuted “Without You,” the second single from the gold-certified Get Closer on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The song is the follow-up to his 24th Top 5 hit, “Put You in a Song.” This summer, Keith kicks off his Get Closer 2011 World Tour on June 16 in Mississippi.
