It’s fair to say it’s been a banner year for Keith Urban. Not only did the singer rack up a hit single and an Entertainer of the Year trophy at the Country Music Awards last November, but he married actress Nicole Kidman in a romantic wedding in Sydney in June. Since then, the happy couple have been settling in to life in Nashville, shopping at Target and hitting up the local Starbucks (she gets green tea, he’s a black coffee man). “You see them everywhere,” says one Nashville source. “People don’t bother them. They’re really just very down-to-earth, and their publicity [doesn’t] affect them. They’re real.”
But Urban hasn’t been slacking off on the career front either. Since the wedding, he’s performed in front of sold-out crowds around the country. And with his upcoming CD Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing hitting stores Nov. 7, Urban has been busy rehearsing for a 2007 tour. Word is, Mrs. Urban will be going with him.
