Keith Urban Accepts An Award At The AMAs, Then Gets An Even Bigger Surprise


It's been a busy year for one of country music's power couple, but Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman squeezed in one more special surprise at the American Music Awards.

Since he moved to America from Australia in the '90s, Keith Urban has become one of country music's biggest names. His classic songs, including "Somebody Like You" and "You'll Think of Me," made him a star, and he's used that success to become a judge on American Idol and Australia's version of The Voice.

But Urban's wife Nicole Kidman keeps busy too. She was named Australia's richest celebrity earlier this year, and won an Emmy award for her role on the HBO  show Big Little Lies, which she also produced. All that and these two still find time to spend with their daughters Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose.

This year, Urban was nominated for a number of awards at the AMAs, which are voted on by fans. His album Ripcord was up for the Favorite Country Album award, his song "Blue Ain't Your Color" was nominated for Favorite Country Singer, and Urban himself was nominated for Male Country Artist.


Urban was announced as the winner of that last award, but when he took the stage to accept it the presenters surprised everyone with a special announcement.

It turned out that Urban had won Favorite County Album, Singer, and Favorite Male Artist, and he was presented with all three awards at once.

The presenters joked that Urban didn't have enough hands, and passed two of his awards to Kidman in the front row, who seemed happy to help out her husband. "Absolutely you should be sharing these my love," Urban said before thanking his fans for the awards.

"I love you guys more than you know," he said, "without you it is one long soundcheck." Urban doubled down with a thankful Instagram video recorded just after the ceremony. "It's indescribable, I can't thank you guys enough."

Thank you!!! "¢ #AMAs

On social media, Urban's dedicated fans seemed just as happy as he was with the outcome. "No one deserves it more than YOU!!!" one fan wrote. "I love how thankful and humble you guys are," another commented, "and totally adorable together."
