OSCARS: Original Song Contenders

By | Thursday December 6, 2012 @ 9:24pm PST

Composers and lyricists for tunes from Act Of Valor, Chasing Ice, Les Misérables, Silver Linings Playbook, Stand Up Guys and Wreck-It Ralph discuss their entries.

Act Of Valor - “For You”,  Monty Powell & Keith Urban

After watching Act of Valor, country music icon Keith Urban sat down at his Nashville home with his cowriter Monty Powell to discuss their feelings about the military action film they just saw; an anomaly that specifically cast active U.S. Navy Seals performing fictionalized missions.

“I asked myself, ‘Was there something I would die for?’ Certainly, in my case, it was my family.
