Keith Urban Spends New Years Down Under

Keith Urban rang in the New Year in his home country of Australia with his wife Nicole Kidman. The country music star posted an image on Twitter of him on a balcony in Sydney with fireworks roaring behind him.

"Happy new year from Sydney!!!!" the American Idol judge tweeted along with the picture.

The upcoming year is looking to be a busy one for Urban. Along with his hosting duties on American Idol, Urban is scheduled to hit the studio to record his newest album and then head out on the road for a full blown tour in July.

In the meantime, Urban is up for the Golden Globe award for Best Original Song From a Motion Picture category with his song "For You" from the film Act of Valor. The Golden Globes are scheduled for Saturday, January 12.
