Keith Urban Reveals How Nicole Kidman Has Helped Him Become the Man He Is Today
We’ll all watched the adorable videos of Nicole Kidman dancing around and basically being Keith Urban’s groupie during his home concert sessions. So, we know she’s a fan of her husband’s music. But, as Urban tells it, Kidman’s relationship with his music speaks to a much deeper part of their relationship — and how her attitude toward it helps to make him the man he is today.
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe Urban confessed he has Kidman to thank for his new song “Testify,” as she was the one who originally discovered the track. “Nic turns me on to a lot of good music,” he told Lowe, who joked that Kidman might be a “full music nerd” like her husband. “She’s got great taste in music because it’s always visceral. It’s just like, ‘I don’t know who the artist is. I don’t know what genre it is. I don’t know. I just love this song.’ Boom. That’s all that matters to her.”
When Lowe pointed out that it sounds like fans should thank Kidman for Urban’s new album God Whispered Your Name, Urban conceded she does influence his work. “What I’ve learned from her is to be more fearless in artistry and go for the curious place that you want to go as an artist. Don’t question it,” he said.
But her perspective has shaped much more than just his music. That fearlessness of Kidman’s helps embolden Urban as a husband and a human being. “You know, her whole thing is like, ‘I’m interested in that. I’m going to go over there,’” he explained. “It’s not like, ‘Oh, can I do it? Should I do it?’ None of that ever comes into it. She just goes towards something and I’m like, ‘Can you do that?’ She goes, ‘I don’t know, but I’m interested in that.’”
Urban continued, gushing, “That fearlessness, and it’s actually not even fearlessness. Fear doesn’t come into it. It’s only curiosity. It’s pure curiosity. She just goes without questioning it.”
And yes, that’s impacted his music in a big way. But it’s also now part of who he is at his core. So, it’s little wonder he (heartwarmingly) feels he “married up” when he wed Kidman 14 years ago.
