Urban Tries To Protect His Daughter From Cameras

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Keith Urban understands that paparazzi come along with the fame, but he draws a line when it comes to his infant daughter.

"I'm as protective of my family as any father and husband can be. It can be just a bit intrusive, you know," he said in a recent interview. "It's just a reality. I understand the society we live in. It's a bit odd at times in that regard."

Urban and his wife, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, had their first child, Sunday Rose, last July. He said the couple, who live in Nashville, do "what we can to keep (Sunday Rose) safe, because she didn't choose to come into this lifestyle.

"It's just what her mother and I do, so we do what we can to try and keep some civility about the whole thing."

Urban's new album, "Defying Gravity," produced the No. 1 country hit "Sweet Girl," and the second single, "Kiss a Girl," is No. 6 on the Billboard country chart. On Thursday, Urban kicks off his Escape Together World Tour in Uncasville, Conn.

The 41-year-old says the toughest part of touring is being away from his family. So he's making adjustments.

His tour bus is set up so they can travel with him as much as possible, and he's structured the schedule so he gets to go home frequently between shows.

"I love having them. I love when the girls are here," he said.

Urban is using a number of opening acts, including Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, The Zac Brown Band and Country Music Hall of Famer Glen Campbell.

Campbell, 73, was an early influence on him when he was growing up in Australia. He calls Campbell's latest album, "Meet Glen Campbell," on which the veteran star covers songs by the likes of Green Day and Tom Petty, "killer good."

"I fell in love with the record and reached out to see if he could come out and play with us," Urban said.
