Keith Urban was certainly surprised when a duffle bag was brought out on stage with a “present” for him during his All for the Hall concert this week. He got an even bigger shock when he was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. Not even his beautiful wife, Nicole Kidman, breathed a word of the news to him, even though that goes against their promise to each other to not withhold any secrets in their relationship.
Keith Urban says his wife, Nicole Kidman, kept mum about his surprise Grand Ole Opry membership invitation, even though they don’t keep secrets from each other. “[It’s] not every day that you get a duffle bag brought up on stage. I had no clue what it was, and it’s funny, because my wife and I have a very strict rule that we don’t keep secrets and we’re not into surprises. You know, my wife’s like, ‘I don’t like surprises. Don’t ever have a surprise. Always tell me if there’s going to be a surprise party,’ that sort of thing. And so we’ve never surprised each other with anything, or kept any secret about anything and this is the rare exception. When we got home, she said, ‘Do you wished I would’ve told you?’ And I said, ‘No.’ On the one hand, yeah, in the sense that I might’ve felt a little more prepared, but no in the sense of genuine shock. [I’m] grateful that she didn’t.”
