Keith Urban is packing up his family and moving across the pond – temporarily anyways.
Keith tells People he and his family is leaving Nashville for a summer stay in London town. Wife Nicole Kidman is slated to begin work on a play in the English city, requiring the Kidman-Urban household to switch home bases.
“I’m really looking forward to that because I love London,” Keith says. “Of course, I’ve got a lot of shows on and the Idol auditions are gonna start, so I’m gonna be going back and forth from London pretty regularly, so we’ve got a busy year ahead of us.”
The cloudy and gray city is a big change for Keith and his family, who are big fans of beach weather.
“I think when you’re from Australia, everybody’s pretty coastal in Australia, so I grew up on the beach, Nic grew up on the beach…”
Keith will play select festival days throughout the summer before picking back up with American Idol auditions next fall.
