Shane McAnally, Nicolle Galyon and Ross Copperman co-wrote "Female;" Urban, Copperman and Dann Huff produced the track.

"But not only in my house; I employ a huge amount of women in my team".

"As a husband and father of two young girls, it affects me in a lot of ways", Mr Urban told Billboard about the song's message.

Plus, one of the biggest issues in country music over the last few years is the lack of representation for women, particularly on the radio - there are now just five female singers on the Top 50 country songs chart.

"The writers wrote this song on October 10 and I heard it the next day", Urban told Rolling Stone Country. Urban is speaking to a genre where women still receive significantly less radio airplay and chart lower than their male counterparts, just two years after "Tomatogate", in which a consultant openly advised radio stations not to play two songs by women in a row, calling them "the tomatoes of the salad", a descriptor which, mercifully, did not make Urban's list of things that are female.

Mueller Probing Possible $15M Deal Between Turks, Flynn During Presidential Transition

Country star Keith Urban was honored for his philanthropy and hit country songwriter Bob DiPiero was honored as an icon by the performing rights organization BMI on Tuesday.

Urban credited his wife and daughters as inspiring him to record Female.

It addresses gender roles, consent and even quotes Beyonce's Run The World (Girls).

The song was released on Wednesday (November 8) and Urban debuted it live at the Country Music Association Awards. When the allegations about Weinstein started, she released a statement that applauded "women who speak out against any abuse and misuse of power".

Says Urban, "When you're dealing with that kind of subject, you're already fraught with, how do you frame something that speaks to as many people as possible?" "We're in a room and we're like, 'What can we do about this?'" he said.
