And while fashion’s biggest night may sound more like her jam than his, the couple have seamlessly flowed back and forth between their seemingly separate worlds, none of that we-don’t-do-carpets-together business for them: Kidman is now a fixture at the CMAs, the ACMAs, the CMTs, etc., and she attended the 2015 American Idol finale, while Urban has been to more Academy Awards, Golden Globes and SAG Awards ceremonies than he probably ever envisioned when he was starting out on the country circuit in the late 1990s.
While there isn’t tons of evidence to suggest that Kidman was a big country fan before they got together, she does love being married to a musician and gets a thrill from watching him perform.
“Because he’s been playing since he was 6 and because he loves playing—there’s something in that,” she told CMT before the 2016 CMT Music Awards. “He doesn’t get nervous; he just can’t wait to get up there.”
During her 2013 chat with Ellen DeGeneres, when shown a pic of Urban strumming his guitar with their daughters, Sunday Rose and Margaret Faith, while sitting in the back of a pickup truck, Kidman acknowledged, “He is divine, that’s very much our life. They play guitar and dance and that’s his pick-up truck.”
“The great thing about being married to a musician…you have music in the house all the time,” Kidman, the Moulin Rouge star of course a capable singer who’s been known to sing a duet or two with her husband, continued. “There is something very joyful about having music. Keith can play pretty much any instrument. He’ll just play piano at 7 in the morning that’s what we have, is breakfast around the piano and very much a part of our life.”
