Keith Urban is enjoying some time off for the holidays before starting a new season of American Idol. Next summer (their winter), Keith will bring his Light the Fuse Tour to Australia. He spoke with Yahoo Australia about all things Keith including fatherhood, music, and the scissor snip heard around the world…which let’s face it, is the most important topic.
I just wanted to hack it all off at some point. Idol was always constantly shooting and I thought what’s the least disruptive time as far as Idol is concerned. I said to Nic I just want to get it all cut off and she was like yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s just hair, you know. If you don’t like it will grow back, it’s no big drama. So she was shooting a campaign here in Nashville and her hairdresser was in town. I went to visit her on the set and she was like why don’t you get him to do it and I went okay and I just walked in, he cut it off and it was done.
Keith seems to have it all, great hair (just less of it), great marriage, great career, great children. However, for him it’s all a balance, a balance that sometimes he’s not very good at.
There is no perfect science. I sometimes do a crap job of it and it falls in a big heap and I’ve got to put it back together again. I don’t do anything perfectly but I love our family and I’m in it. I’m committed to correcting the balance when it goes out of balance. But both of us (Urban and Kidman) just think of ourselves as in a lot of ways just pure working parents…So yeah, it’s a balance right there. For me, so long as I keep family prioritised, my marriage my priority, then everything works. I always put my marriage first, I just do, and everything falls into line after that.
