~Keith Urban has toured internationally this year, but it's tonight's Sommet Center show that really makes him excited.
~As he begins what he says is a new chapter in his life, he can't help but reflect on his career.
"It doesn't feel like it was that long ago that I was playing the Ace of Clubs and 12th and Porter.
To go from those little places up to this venue is just amazing. It's a great feeling; I certainly don't take it for granted."
The couple purchased a Middle Tennessee farm this year that they're currently renovating.
"Ironically, the first place I took her to was out near Leiper's Fork," he said. "That ended up being out in the general area where we will now call home. I just knew that she would love it for the exact same reasons I love it. There's a pace and a way of living that is much more spiritually satisfying to me than a lot of other places."
Of his farm, he says, "It's something that has quite a bit of room to walk around and grow some grass under our feet and have some privacy, but not feel like we're isolated. We don't want to live in a compound. It's the great thing about Tennessee and especially Nashville. The people are just real people, so they just accept you being neighbors.
He said the couple has a good rhythm here. "Nashville suited us as a couple very quicky. So having been away now for so long making this film, we are just both anxious to get back into that groove again."
