Keith Urban said his new song "Female" is inspired by Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault allegations.

The CMA Country Music Association shared a short clip of Urban's stunning performance on their Facebook page.

Love Keith Urban's new song.

Urban said he immediately wanted to record "Female" when he heard it presented by the songwriting trio of Ross Copperman, Nicolle Galyon, and Shane McAnally.

So, the CMAs were last night, and you may have heard of the new song Keith Urban dropped and then performed on the show.

The lyrics from the song include the lines: "When somebody laughs and implies that she asked for it/Just cause she was wearing a skirt/Oh is that how that works?"

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. For a guy who grew up with no sisters in a house of boys, it's incredible how now I'm surrounded by girls. "Is that such a bad thing?"

Urban told Billboard that females affect him "in a lot of ways", which is why he feels so connected to the song.

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

Among the praise for the song from many others, rising country star Kelsea Ballerini tweeted that "Female" deserved to win Song of the Year despite coming out on the awards night itself. In addition to singling out his (living!) relatives, Urban also pointed out that he employs a number of women on his team.

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?"

"I think obviously the tone of times right now was weighing on all of them and compelled them to write this song", Urban said at the awards gala in Nashville, Rolling Stone Country reported.
