Congratulations are in order once again for Keith Urban, who has hit the No. 1 slot on the country singles chart right now for the 14th time. His latest single, ‘You Gonna Fly,’ written by the LoCash Cowboys‘ Preston Brust and Chris Lucas (along with Jaren Johnston), spent only 19 weeks on the chart before reaching the top, marking one of the singer’s fastest rising hits to date.

The tune, in which Urban refers to as a “poor boy romance,” was written soon after the LoCash Cowboys inked their first publishing deal with Sony/ATV. While they knew the song was a hit waiting to happen, neither Brust, Lucas or Johnston ever dreamed the tune would wind up in the hands of Urban.

“I started writing songs when I was 12, and I remember dreaming about them being No. 1 on radio and on the charts,” Brust tells Taste of Country. “So to actually have this happen is a life-long dream and journey come true. I want to tell Keith thank you for making this kid’s dream come true. I keep looking at the charts, thinking there is one more slot to go, but there’s not. It’s at the top. It’s No. 1. It feels so good!”

“It’s freaking amazing … I don’t know how else to put it,” Lucas adds. “It’s a life-changer and we become members of the No. 1 club. It is amazing and to have Keith Urban cut it and take it to No. 1 is a grand slam. They can finally take my picture down at the bank because of all my overdraft fees [laughs]!”
