Keith Urban is 'Very Blessed' That Nicole Kidman Staged an Intervention for Him

Keith Urban gets ready to rock out at the 2014 CMA Festival on Saturday (June 7) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 46-year-old musician performed alongside the Florida Georgia Line guys that evening for the packed crowd.

Keith recently opened up about his wife Nicole Kidman staging an intervention before he went to rehab.

“I was very, very blessed to have Nic call an intervention on me. I had a tight group of friends around me for the intervention,” Keith told Rolling Stone. “I didn’t give a shit about anything except turning a corner in my life and doing whatever it took for that. And off I went.”

FYI: Keith is wearing a Levi’s Trucker jacket.

    That interview from Rolling Stone is fantastic. Keith Urban is a good man. And he has a great woman beside him.

    Keith really opened up about his addiction problems. Seemed like a very honest interview, he must have trusted the interviewer. I didn’t think it possible but it makes me admire him even more.

    Well Rolling Stone is a very respected institution and sadly the mags left that cover country music exclusively are closer to People and US than a legitimate music publication like RS. Keith chose the right outlet to do an extensive interview with this kind of reach. Fans knew his journey from his days living with a fellow addict to today with his beautiful wife and adorable daughters. But now more people will know. And even though his former roommate is well-known here in Nashvile and his own journey is well-documented, Keith kept it classy and didn’t name names. If anybody deserves the success he’s had and continues to have it’s Keith Urban, a class act.

    Loved Keith’s interview, he didn’t sugar-coat any of it. He is amazing. I am so happy he met his beautiful Nicole.

    What do you mean everyone else will know? Who cares? Unless someone has lead a perfect life, there’s no one who has the right to criticize others. He was alone and miserable in Nashville, no money, no friends, and even unable to get a green card. Unfortunately, there’s always dealers who are looking for that scenario. Being thrown into the limelight when he married Nicole, probably wasn’t the best recipe for continued sobriety either, but again he works through it. Keith talks about how loyal his fans are, but I think he also realizes those loyal fans offer up a lot of prayers, and we’ll continue doing so; that’s the kind of fans we are!

    @Lizzie: I really think you misunderstood my comment. Readers who aren’t fans can see his story, in great detail, as an inspiration. Not something to criticize him for or hold over his head. God knows the women that come here to b1tch about Nicole and trash Keith already do enough of that.

    Is the Urban interview in Rolling Stone or the Rolling Stone Country special issue?

    It must be something about these Australians, Keith Urban and Hugh Jackman for example are the most thoughtful, kind men. They love their wives and family and not afraid to tell the world. Makes me adore them even more, if possible.

  • Jimmy

    He looks like a lesbian Woman

  • Amy

    Carrie Underwood is correct. The love he has and expresses for his wife makes him super sexy! Women LOVE men that are committed and devoted. Great qualities. Nicole is so lucky to have him.

    I’d say Keith Urban and Tim McGraw are two men from their generation who learned lessons from their more stoic fathers. It’s why I’ve always enjoyed their music more than the Blakr Shelton Luke Bryan group. I caught Tim’s special on OWN and he teared up about his daughters and wife and said similar statements by Keith about how lucky they are to have who they have for a mom. I haven’t seen Nicole quoted from her Entertainment Tonight interview at the CMT’s anywhere but she said Keith was a great father and husband. It’s a shame the internet can’t stop making up stories about these lovely couples. The latest nonsesnse I saw from the rags is the McGraws, Urbans, and Travoltas are all getting 640 mill dollar divorces at the same time. As if.

    I did see an interview where Nicole said she just wants to make Keith happy. She also said, when being interviewed for Princess Grace, I’m married to a Prince, a country Prince. I think they are meant to be together.

    @Jimmy: Dear Jimmy, you sound very, very jealous !!! I hate to burst your bubble but before he met Nicole he was notorious for being known as a womanizer. You are probably The Crazy One using another name.

  • http://comcast Amber

    @Amber: I have to add Tim McGraw to my list. I just saw Tim on OWN, what great guy and he isn’t even Australian. LOL Tim’s’ story reminded me a little like Keith Urbans story. I love how much they love their wives and daughters.

  • Berry

    Thanks for the link. Very honest and open guy. Not too many of them around . Lots of big not much talent pretenders though.

  • http://comcast Teresa

    LUCKY NICOLE !!!! LUCKY FAITH !!!! There isn’t too many husbands (musicians) like you two have.

    It’s just crazy old Mary, having a few drinks and angry that Keith wasn’t interested in her advances.

  • http://Yahoo JoBeth


    As I’ve been told in the past by others, don’t read that trash.

  • Delta

    @JoBeth: Oh no need. The photos and headlines on the cover you see as you are waiting to check out are enough to know its bullhockey. I saw the same bs Sonora did today at the store.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Joni: Keith talked about his addiction in an Australian magazine before he ever met her…When the promo gets hot and heavy, out comes the story…ALL to aggrandize…

    So he’s human…We all are…I would never hold any of that against him…I cried like a baby, when I first read of his addiction and how he lost the woman he loved…And it wasn’t “Nic”…She is not the savior…Jesus saves…

  • bamamom

    27, once again, you’re calling him a liar.

  • 1urbanfan27

    @bamamom: I never said that he wasn’t grateful…But the story still comes out at just the right time…Just like with Oprah…And yet… :)

  • 1urbanfan27

    @bamamom: What’s the matter bamamom…Miss the old CMT days…No one to stalk and defame and call names?

  • http://comcast Joni

    @urban27. Keith also said he didn’t know what real love was until he met Nicole, he never had this feeling before, explain that urban27 ????

  • 1urbanfan27

    @Joni: Keith says a lot of things…It is his public life…

  • 1urbanfan27

    I also believe he was in love with Laura and Niki…He WAS engaged to them…Although being engaged or married for that matter, doesn’t necessarily spell love…But some people have to have it all about them, all the time…

  • http://comcadt Patricia

    @1urbanfan27: Are you saying that he is lying when he says he didn’t know what true love was until he met Nic ??? I may be wrong but I don’t think he was ever engaged to Niki.

  • YumYum

    @1urbanfan27: Why are constantly insulting Keith and calling him a liar? He is crazy in love with Nicole, they’ve been together for almost 10 years and have two children together. It’s time for you to accept reality.
