OFFSTAGE: Did Keith Urban Sing in His Sleep?

(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 had some weird dreams during his recovery from a recent vocal cord surgery. Like, ones where he was singing in a high, Leo Sayer-like voice. (Think 1976’s “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing.”) “I woke up the next morning and I called the doctor and [asked], ’Would it be possible that I could sing in my sleep?'” he confessed to Access Hollywood Live . For three weeks after the surgery, Urban was on complete voice rest. That meant no talking, crying, sneezing, coughing or even throat-clearing. He said one of the hardest parts of all that quiet was not being able to talk to his daughters, because even though he could write out his part of any conversation, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret are too young to read.
