*Music is a huge part of KEITH URBAN's family. In fact, his wife NICOLE KIDMAN has a singing part in her upcoming movie, Nine, and previously sang in the 2001 movie musical Moulin Rouge! So, would the couple ever release a duet? Keith says, quote, "I don't think anything's ever out of the question...I love singing with her at home. That's quite nice." WDEZ Club Bonus is duet.
Keith also enjoys making music with his young daughter SUNDAY ROSE each morning at the piano. He says, quote, "We mash the keys together." Sunday's also quite the vocalist. Keith says, quote, "She's got some pipes. They're loud, [but] I think she sounds quite musical." Keith, Nicole and little Sunday Rose will be spending Christmas Down Under following Keith's Australian tour. That trek kicks off December 12th in Melbourne.
