OFFSTAGE: Nicole Kidman: Keith Urban’s No. 1 Fan

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Keith Urban has rugged good looks. And he’s a country star. With an Australian accent. All of which makes him like the trifecta of sexy — and very easy to fall in love with. And no one knows that more than his lucky, lucky wife Nicole Kidman. In the March issue of Marie Claire UK , Kidman says, “I’m crazy in love. I think you can live anywhere and do anything when you’re crazy in love.” The “live anywhere” comment must have come from a conversation they had when the magazine came to the sprawling 36-acre Kidman-Urban (or Urban-Kidman) plot of land they call home near Nashville. “I’m very driven by falling in love. I fall in love and I’ll drop everything and change everything,” she admitted. If you’re in the U.K., pick up a copy. Kidman is on the cover, in a white lace Dolce & Gabbana dress, looking all crazy in love.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
