Keith Urban Keeps the Romance Alive Even When They’re Apart

Keith Urban NIcole KIdman

Keith Urban‘s lovely wife, Nicole Kidman, covers the March issue of InStyle, and if there weren’t already enough reason to fall in love with Keith Urban…she gives us a few more. The couple are happily married with two lovely daughters, living a peaceful life in Nashville…Or on a tour bus driving across the country. Somehow, amidst a crazy life, they’ve managed to build a relationship that we have no doubt will stick.

That’s basically how I’ve seen most of America, on that bus. Keith and I are both gypsies at heart. We can make our home wherever we are. The girls are like that too now, so we take them everywhere.”

However, they can’t always be together. Sometimes she’s shooting a film halfway around the world and he’s playing gigs here in the states. So, does absence really make the heart grow fonder? How do they keep the home fires burnin’?

For every single night he’s away, he leaves me a love letter. Every single night of our relationship.”

Okay…seriously. Keith Urban looks how he looks, sings how he sings, and he’s also a hopeless romantic too? Some girls just have all the luck.

You can read more from Nicole inside InStyle’s march issue which hits newsstands on Friday.

Country Music Couples Make the Nashville Power Couple List!

Nashville Lifestyles has released their list of Nashville’s most powerful couples, and joining Mayor Karl Dean and his wife are several country couples!  It’s not all about their career achievements either….These couples have stepped-up to help their community.

VINCE GILL, AMY GRANT

Vince Gill & Amy Grant

Vince Gill and Amy Grant not only make up a quintessential country music couple; they’re also two of this city’s most vocal cheerleaders and remain grounded in local charity and philanthropy work. In fact, the duo is being presented with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s 18th annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award this month in honor of their unmatched philanthropic spirit. They’ve supported plenty of causes over the years—including the American Red Cross, the Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee, and Project Redesign—but the Schermerhorn Symphony Center remains nearest to Amy’s heart. Apparently, the feeling is mutual: After she helped the Nashville Symphony avoid bankruptcy several decades ago, the Schermerhorn named its new stage the Amy Grant Performance Platform.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have a shared love of philanthropy. In 2010 alone, Tim and Faith raised $2.2 million through “Nashville Rising,” a benefit concert they organized in response to the devastating floods that ravaged Nashville earlier that year.

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman

Nicole has been a Goodwill Ambassador for both UNICEF and UN Women for nearly a decade, addressing international audiences and raising awareness for issues like women’s rights on a global scale. Closer to their home in Nashville, Keith performs charity concerts and advocates for the MusiCares Musicians’ Assistance Program. Together, the pair participates in local road races, like September’s Franklin Classic, with their daughters Faith and Sunday.

Scott and Sandi Borchetta

The Borchetta empire, Big Machine Label Group, encompasses Big Machine Records, The Valory Music Co., and Republic Nashville (a partnership with Universal Republic) and is home to some of the most successful artists in country music, including Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, and The Band Perry. A big priority for the couple is giving back, which is why they devote resources to important organizations like the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, the Special Olympics, and the Starkey Hearing Foundation, which funds missions around the world to fit children with hearing devices

Brad and Kimberly Paisley

The Paisleys are big proponents of the Nashville-based relief organization Live Beyond, which provides medical care, nutritional support, and clean water to people in Haiti. After visiting the country herself, Kimberly launched the “Paisley Challenge” with Brad, encouraging others to help reach Live Beyond’s goal of establishing 100 clean-water collection sites in Haiti. For the entirety of his 2013 Beat This Summer Tour, Brad donated $1 of each ticket sold to the “Live Beyond…Thirst” campaign to bring clean drinking water to Thomazeau, an impoverished suburb of Port-au-Prince.

Keith Urban Hopes His Daughters Follow in his Musical Footsteps

Keith Urban and wife Nicole Kidman shares two beautiful daughters Sunday Rose, four, and Faith Margaret, two, and Keith says their children have no excuse not to be musical but he is uncertain whether they will become professional recording artists.

Keith admits it won’t be through a lack of having access to music if they turn a blind eye to a professional career in music.

“We have instruments around the house and I sit at the piano and play with both the girls” adding,  “Just this morning I had the music cranked up during breakfast and they would sort of eat a bit and then start dancing around the floor and then go back and eat a bit more and then dance a bit more. I just thought, ‘What an awesome way to start the morning, having a little food and dancing.’”

The 45-year-old Australian singer also revealed that he likes their children to be surrounded by performers because he hopes it will inspire them in the future, and recently brought them to the set of ‘American Idol’.

“They actually came down to the state yesterday for a little while. Nic and I love them being around that kind of environment, watching people sing, watching them perform and being around the music. It’s … being around that and being around the movie sets since they were born. They’re certainly music fans. They haven’t watched the show yet, but I have a feeling they will be this season.”

Keith revealed that his wife is a big fan of the reality singing competition.

“Sometimes we’ve watched the show, sat down and watched it. Particularly it was funny watching the audition rounds because they had happened so long ago. We would sit down to watch them and Nic would be wanting to know, ‘Does he go through? Does she go through?’

“It was actually good to watch it like that because I’d gotten a bit of time away and getting to see them and hear them like that was great. I wouldn’t say I take my work home with me, but if someone really stands out I certainly – Nic is always curious if I’ve seen somebody that stands out.”

“American Idol” is a Family Affair for Keith Urban

Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban

For “American Idol” judge Keith Urban, the reality tv show is a family affair.  Keith tells Hello Magazine, that Nicole Kidman and their two girls, Sunday and Faith, often visit the set of the show, and his wife sometimes offers her thoughts on the performances.

“I wouldn’t say I take my work home with me,” said Keith. “But Nic will always tell me if someone stands out.”

Music definitely is a big part of their family household; not surprising since Keith is such a musical talent, that some of it would rub off on his youngins.

“Just this morning, I had the music cranked up during breakfast and they would eat a bit, then dance around the floor, then eat a bit more,” he said. “What a way to start the morning, right?”

Watch Keith on “American Idol” every Wednesday and Thursday on FOX.
