Keith Urban “It’s all about the fans”


When at all possible, he brings wife Nicole Kidman and their two daughters, Sunday and Faith, with him. “Or I tour in such a short sporadic way that I am only gone three days and then fly home again,” Urban tells Rolling Stone Country. When the country star plays West Coast dates, the whole family relocates from Nashville to their Los Angeles home and he’ll fly home after the show, if possible. “So I’m zipping in and out from [L.A.]. The girls, everybody comes.”

His shows have always been electrifying, but if you’ve noticed that Urban, 46, just keeps getting better and better, that means his hard work is paying off. “I am eternally hungry for improvement in every single thing I do,” he says. “I’m trying to be a better singer. I’m trying to be a better guitar player. I’m trying to put on better shows, put a better set list together, know how to talk to a crowd better, take a crowd on a journey, all of it… It’s a lifetime journey of learning.”

After he steps off stage every night, the New Zealand-born musician reviews the show in his mind and by the next time he performs, he says, “I’ve got a big laundry list of things I’m anxious to see if I can get right tonight, or expand upon.”
