|Keith Urban singles chronology|
"But for the Grace of God" is a song co-written and recorded by Australian country music singer Keith Urban. Urban wrote the song along with Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's. It was released in November 2000 as the third single from his self-titled American debut album. The song became Urban's first number one hit on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart for the week of February 24, 2001, and maintained that position for one week. This ended a two-and-a-half-year streak in which no artist on the Capitol Records label achieved a Number One single on the country charts.
Single and album version differences
Both radio edit and album-length versions have been issued. The radio edit excises a musical bridge after the second chorus and has a slightly different ending than the album cut.
