Keith Urban Credits Wife With Successfully Navigating Family Life During Pandemic

Keith Urban, his wife, Nicole Kidman, and their two daughters are all in their native Australia these days due to Nicole's work schedule. Despite the pandemic that continues globally, Keith tells us EXCLUSIVELY that they are carrying on as best they can under the circumstances, and he largely credits Nicole for balancing everything. ["She's just such a great wife and mother to our girls so she really keeps us all moving forward and making it all work even when we have to shoot in different locations. You know, we came down to Australia because this is where Nic is shooting her film and the kids are doing schooling as best they can right now, and I'll be getting on a plane to head back to Nashville very soon to host the ACMs so we just sort of figure it out as we go."] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . as we go.)

The ACM Awards will be held in Nashville for the very first time on Sept. 16th. It will air from three different legendary Music City venues — the Grand Ole Opry House, the Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe — on CBS beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

Keith sits in the Top 10 on the country charts with "God Whispered Your Name," the latest single from his upcoming album, The Speed of Now Part 1, which will be released on Sept. 18th.
