OFFSTAGE: Keith Urban’s Daughters Have Music for Breakfast

(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 wants his daughters — Sunday, 4, and Faith, 2 — to be around music as much as possible. “I love them being around that kind of [American Idol] environment, watching people sing, watching people perform and being around the music,” Urban told reporters during a conference call on Feb. 20. “They’re certainly music fans.” He added that his daughters have unlimited access to music at home because he has his instruments all around the house and plays piano with them. And also because he turns the music up loud, even first thing in the morning. “Just this morning, I had the music cranked up during breakfast, and they would sort of eat a bit and then start dancing around the floor and then go back and eat a bit more and then dance a bit more,” Urban said. “I just thought, ’What an awesome way to start the morning, having a little food and dancing.'”
