Keith Urban is a very important man in the world of country music.
And if the stories are true, Urban may also be a very important man in the life of Nicole Kidman.
“Hopefully someone will come along that will sweep me off my feet,” Nicole told Access Hollywood in an earlier interview.
But is that someone Keith Urban? The country sensation certainly did sweep Nicole off her feet last week on a motorcycle ride in Woodstock, New York where the duo was also spotted lunching at health food eatery Elijah's Cafe.
And while the company may have been newsworthy, for Keith, the activity was nothing out of the ordinary.
“I ride motor bikes a lot. I have three bikes what we travel on the road with,” Urban told us. “So I ride almost every day when we tour.” While Kidman is shooting her new drama, “Fur,” in New York City, the 37-year-old Urban hit the road this summer with Kenny Chesney — who happens to be married to Nic's close friend and fellow Oscar winner Renee Zelwegger.
Surprisingly, the hunky country rocker Urban hails from Down Under just like Nicole. The two met seven months ago at a Los Angeles dinner honoring noted Australians.
But did one of our producers have a premonition about the possible couple-to-be?
“Are you going to ask Nicole on a date? She's single,” our producer asked Keith.
“Well…you know. I'm glad to be here,” a coy Keith replied.
The pair's motorcycle outing comes on the heels of Urban's reported breakup with his on-and-off girlfriend, model Niki Taylor.
As for Nicole, Keith's rep said: “They are friends and no, they are not dating.”
Urban has sold 6 million albums worldwide and he's even been selected to appear in this fall's Gap ads. But Keith downplays his star power, which seemingly is all the more alluring to Nicole.
“I love the discovery of someone and the mystery of the things you don't know and it somehow happens to be the person that's your favorite person in the world,” Kidman noted.
