Well, at the risk of coming off all snarky, learning that Keith Urban just entered rehab certainly offers a new reading to the line "I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pride" (from the gorgeous "Tonight I Wanna Cry"). His suspending promotion for the upcoming Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing shouldn't hurt it too much, except for the small matter of what's slated for the night before his new album's release: the 40th annual CMA Awards. Keith's up for 4 trophies, all big ones (Male Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year [he's the reigning winner in both categories], along with Single of the Year for "Better Life," and Song of the Year for "Tonight I Wanna Cry"), and was supposed to perform as well. You wouldn't think he'd be out of rehab in less than 3 weeks, which would mean that one of country's current brightest lights will be missing - not to mention wondering if voting is still going on for the CMAs. Could this impact voters' ballots? (I'm also disheartened that in all likelihood this also means Nicole Kidman won't be in attendance, which I was really looking forward to.) These are the questions which plague me.
thomas, you turned me on mightily to "tonight I wanna cry" which i saw on your sub-meat list. what production! love it. don't know anything else of his.Post a Comment
