If Keith Urban's latest single sounds faintly familiar, thank Madonna. The country star revealed in an interview with USA Today that he found inspiration for "Little Bit of Everything" in the Queen of Pop's popular 2001 song "Don't Tell Me."

The connection isn't as totally mind-boggling as one might think -- upon its release, 'Don't Tell Me" was hailed as a song that borrowed country and folk vibes. "She had a staccato acoustic-guitar part in there that I thought was very cool," Urban reportedly said when explaining what aspects of the song enlightened him.

Another track that have may factored into the "Little Bit" that's currently climbing the country charts is Train's "Hey, Soul Sister." Urban likened the song's demo, co-written by "Let It Rock" singer Kevin Rudolf, to Train's 2009 megahit.

"Little Bit of Everything" will headline Urban's upcoming album "Fuse," slated for a Sept. 10 release. Click over to USA Today to read more about the country singer's inspirations for the song.
