When Nicole Kidman found out her husband was recording a duet with Carrie Underwood, she responded in the most shocking way ever.
Ten years of marriage and 2 kids later, Keith Urban is still finding ways to balance his life as a country superstar and family man.
As one of the final judges on American Idol, Keith shares a special connection with season 4 winner Carrie Underwood — the reigning “Queen of Country Music.”
When Keith announced he was recording a duet with Carrie, relationship rumors immediately started swirling — especially after their intense live performance on the American Idol finale.
However, a recent video of him and Nicole Kidman is not only making jaws drop — but also melting hearts everywhere. And the REAL drama behind the duet shocked me even more…
Keith posted the candid video on his Facebook account. It shows the country star beside his Academy Award winning wife in the front seats of a car and giddily singing along to his new duet with Carrie Underwood, “The Fighter.”
When I listened to the lyrics in this song, I knew Keith was referring to Nicole’s failed marriage with Tom Cruise, a notoriously outspoken Scientologist.
Check out the opening lyrics to “The Fighter,” by Keith Urban:
I know he hurt you
Made you scared of love, too scared to love
He didn’t deserve you
Cause you’re precious heart is a precious
He didn’t know what he had and I thank God, oh, oh, oh
And it’s gonna take just a little time
But you’re gonna see that I was born to love you
DID YOU KNOW: Many of Keith’s songs have religious meanings behind them and some of them even have Bible verses in the title. Keith and Nicole also took a bold stand for their faith when they named their daughters Sunday, 7-years-old, and Faith, 5-years-old. One of the most heartwarming memories for Keith and Nicole was when they visited Monash Children’s Hospital to sing “Amazing Grace” to the young patients. However, Keith’s commitment to family and traditional values are the most vivid reflections of his strong faith in God.
It warmed my heart to see Keith and Nicole serenade each other in this video! These two give us hope that “the honeymoon phase” never fades – the destination just might be different and we have to make the most of every journey to that destination.
“Someone said one time, ‘If your marriage isn’t your priority, you’re not married,’ and I thought, for me that’s so true. So as long as I keep her as a priority, everything else sort of seems to work. And when I don’t keep it as a priority, it’s … Jenga,” Keith said.
Watch Keith’s sweet and silly serenade to Nicole right now!
God bless Keith Urban for giving Nicole Kidman the love she deserves after all those painful years with Tom Cruise!
