Nicole Kidman Still Cries Listening to Keith Urban’s Music

Can’t believe these two are still married. Not that they aren’t a good match, but that it feels like a lifetime.

Nicole Kidman still gets emotional listening to Keith Urban’s music. At the Academy of Country Music Awards’s red carpet, she revealed that she cried listening to Urban’s recently released single, “The Fighter.”

“I remember when he first played it for me, and I started to cry.”

“He writes these things, and they come out of I don’t know where, and they are like beautiful gifts. And then I can’t believe the success for the album. “

Guitars, they get the women all the time.

The song features Carrie Underwood and the two trade lyrics that go:

What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry (I’ll never make you cry)
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter
What if I fall (I won’t let you fall)
What if I cry I promise I’ll never make you cry
And if I get scared (I’ll hold you tighter)
When they’re tryna get to you baby I’ll be the fighter

These two seem still really in love. Look at the way Kidman stares at Urban in this tweet on their way to the awards show.

Xenu never let Tom Cruise get too close to Kidman. Good thing she ended up with Urban.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban on Their Daughters’ Movie Premiere Ritual: ‘Hopefully They’re at the Hotel Watching Shrek Right Now’

Nicole Kidman often stars in films that aren’t age-appropriate for daughters Sunday Rose, 7½, and Faith Margaret, 5.

So when Mom and dad Keith Urban attend a glamorous evening event in Manhattan, what are the kids up to?

“Hopefully, they’re at the hotel watching Shrek right now,” Urban, 48, told PEOPLE at the Museum of Modern Art on Sunday, where he and Kidman walked the red carpet hand in hand for the premiere of her new film Genius.

Shrek Forever After,” adds Kidman, 48, who stunned in a beautiful black gown by Rodarte.

The country singer attended the premiere to support his wife, who plays Aline Bernstein: a tough-as-nails costume designer who has a tumultuous affair with author Thomas Wolfe, played by Jude Law.

And as the Australian couple had recently done such a great job lip syncing to one of Urban’s tunes in their car, the real question was: Do their kids also lip sync to his music?

“Do they, baby?” Kidman consults Urban.

But apparently, there is nothing silent about the girls’ adorable act. “No, they sing, and play,” reveals the actress.

Kidman and Urban recently celebrated 10 years of marriage. When asked about their relationship dynamic, Urban — who just released his new album, titled Ripcord — revealed to PEOPLE in May that the twosome are “pretty goofy.”

“I mean there’s no question that that’s what we’re like,” Urban said at the time. “Anybody that knows us on a personal level knows that’s exactly what we’re like most of the time.”

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban Celebrate ‘9 Years of Love’ with Daughters on Thursday

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary on Thursday, commemorating their family of four through social media.

Kidman, 48, who married the country crooner in Sydney, Australia in June 2006, shared a photo of the couple with daughters Sunday Rose, 6½, and Faith Margaret, 4, via Facebook on the big day.

In the family snap, the couple embraces and looks lovingly down at the girls.

Urban, 47, also used social media to celebrate the milestone, sharing a video with Kidman through Twitter after performing in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

In the clip, the singer thanks concertgoers for helping celebrate his anniversary, as his wife rests her head on his shoulder.

“We just came off stage in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan and it was so fun,” Urban says. “It’s our anniversary tonight and everyone had signs wishing us a happy anniversary — you have no idea how touching that is.”

The “Raise ‘Em Up” singer even admits to getting choked up at the outpouring of fan support.

“I mean, literally, I was trying to hold tears back — it was so beautiful, they were everywhere,” he says, adding, “We were both so grateful, so thank you very much to everyone who came out tonight and made it magical, celestial and so romantic, it was beautiful.”

The Australian even joked that he and the Oscar-winner would spend every anniversary in the Michigan town.

The pair, who call Nashville, Tennessee home, look in love as ever, sharing a sweet kiss before the video ends.

“I always give props to Nic,” Urban previously told PEOPLE of his famous wife. “Because we travel so much as a family, she does an amazing job keeping everybody together. She’s got the kids’ schedule dialed in, she’s dropping them off even in the middle of her work. I couldn’t do any of this without her.”

Keith Urban: Sunday Already Thinks She’s Too Old for Kidz Bop

Keith Urban is off tour and in between seasons of American Idol and enjoying some downtime this summer.

But the country singer — who’s gotten a handle on balancing work and family with wife Nicole Kidman — will have to take a break from his R&R for at least one concert this summer.

Urban, 47, will headline the first-ever PlentiTogether Live show, which he’s co-headlining with Nick Jonas and Pitbull, in New York on July 19. (Fans can only enter to win tickets to the concert June 1-30 via sweepstakes at plentitogether.com.)

PEOPLE caught up with the country star on his favorite Nick Jonas song, his recent collaboration with Jason Derulo — and his thoughts on Kidz Bop!

PEOPLE: Do you have any favorite Nick Jonas or Pitbull songs?

Keith: I’m into “Jealous.” I just love that song. What was really cool was we didn’t know who it was when we heard the song, we just loved it — then we come to find out it’s Nick Jonas. It’s just really cool to see him step out of that band and have such success on his own right, it’s really deserved.

PEOPLE: Will we ever see you and Pitbull collaborating down the line?

Keith: My hand would be way up for that! Absolutely. He’s such a cool dude; I met him briefly at a thing we did in Vegas one time where there were a bunch of country artists playing, but we didn’t get to perform anything like that. He just seemed like a super-cool dude.

PEOPLE: Switching gears a bit: We’re all curious about next season of American Idol, the final season — do you know what we’re in for and what surprises are in store?

Keith: Yeah, it’s really bittersweet. It’s sort of surreal to see the end of this era for such a … it’s a pop icon, in so many ways. I’m glad we get to go out with one big, massive, final season. And who knows! You can’t have a reunion tour until you have the farewell tour, so we’ll see what happens.

It’s gonna be a huge year. I think we’re gonna get swarmed with people wanting to audition for it because if ever there was a season that’s going to have an enormous amount of attention, it’s gonna be this final one, so to be not only part of the journey as a lot of artists are going to be — but to be able to win it is gonna be pretty phenomenal.

PEOPLE: I love Jason Derulo‘s new song “Broke,” with you and Stevie Wonder. How did that happen?

Keith: Well, first of all, I love the song. They sent me the song … I play a six-string banjo, it’s kind of affectionately called a “ganjo.” It sounds a little bit different from a traditional banjo, and of course I play it flat-picking style instead of finger picks. I’ve just got a particular style of playing.

His people just sent me the song and asked if I’d be interested in putting some ganjo on it to see what it sounds like, and I loved the track when they sent it. Stevie’s part wasn’t on it yet, so I just heard the basic track with Jason singin’, put down a whole bunch of different ganjo tracks at my house in Nashville and then sent them what I’d done. And I didn’t know whether they’d use it or not, so when I finally heard the end result and Stevie’s part on it, it just blew my mind.

PEOPLE: What do you and the girls have going on this summer? Any vacations planned?

Keith: We’re actually on a bit of a vacation right now, and we just continue that for another week or so. And Nic’s off, really for the whole summer, and then she’s gonna start a play in London in September, October, November, so we’re gonna be basin’ out of there for about three months.

Everybody’s just relocating and living in London for a little while, so I’m really looking forward to that because I love London. Of course, I’ve got a lot of shows on and the Idol auditions are gonna start, so I’m gonna be going back and forth from London pretty regularly, so we’ve got a busy year ahead of us.

PEOPLE: What does the family like to do for vacation— road trips, or are you a beach family?

Keith: We definitely love the beach. That’s a big part of what we’ve always done as a family. I think when you’re from Australia, everybody’s pretty coastal in Australia, so I grew up on the beach, Nic grew up on the beach, and our daughters, [Sunday and Faith] are 6 and 4, we got them swimming lessons right away when they were like 2, so they both swim great.

But really any time we can just be together feels like a vacation to us, just being at home is bliss. So Nic and I have no problem switching off and getting off the grid very quickly. (Laughs)

PEOPLE: The girls are a little young, but are they big Nick Jonas fans? I guess they’re a little young for the Jonas Brothers days…

Keith: It was so funny because the Kidz Bop touring act came through Nashville. I saw it in the paper and was like, “Oh, we gotta go see that! They’re gonna love this!” And it’s so funny: I said, “Hey, I’m gonna get us some tickets down to Kidz Bop.” And Sunday, she’s 6½ — she’s like, “Ahh, I think that’s for little kids, Dad.” And I was like, “Umm, I think you and your sister are gonna be among the younger ones there, actually. I think you’re gonna have a blast.” I don’t think she knew what she was getting into! And so we, Nic and I, took ’em along.

They just had the BEST time, singin’ along to every song. But the funny part was, of course, they’ve got to tweak all the lyrics, you know? So when they do “Jealous” by Nick Jonas, they couldn’t sing stuff like, “You’re sexy, beautiful.” They had to say, “You’re so cute, you’re beautiful.” And they couldn’t sing “Everybody wants a taste, that’s why.” (Laughs) So they were singin’ [breaks out into song]: “You’re so cute you’re beautiful, everybody wants you, too, that’s why…” (Laughs) Ultra-G-rated, and I was just having a whale of a time. It was a blast.

15 Top Reality TV Salaries: Who’s Making the Biggest Bucks Just For Being Themselves?

They may get criticized for lacking talent or offering up fraudulent versions of their lives and personalities, but the reality TV stars who help score the big ratings also bring in the big bucks.

Kris Jenner and her brood just earned $100 million for four more seasons of Keeping Up With the Kadashians. The imprisoned Teresa Giudice made $700,000 for her final year of filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey. 

Not bad salaries for a bunch of non-college grads who can't sing, act, dance or play sports, but you know what's really shocking?None of those folks are even in the top five when it comes to reality show earners.

Check out the list below to see who's really getting rich from what's arguably America's favorite kind of entertainment:

 

15. Simon Cowell

Simon cowell smiles
Cowell raked in a cool $95 million a year for his final seasons on American Idol. Sometimes being a jerk can really pay off. Of course, Cowell is also a producer and co-creator of the former hit series, so he didn't earn that cash JUST from tearing people down.

14. Howard Stern

Divisive personalities do well on the reality stage and Stern has earned $15 by becoming an unlikely favorite amongst contestants and viewers alike on America's Got Talent. Of course, the show is just one of many revenue streams for the King of All Media.

13. Ryan Seacrest

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood aren't the only ones who got rich off of American Idol. After earning $15 million every season since 2009, Ryan Seacrest is no doubt sad to see the series come to an end.

12. Christina Aguilera

X-Tina comes and goes from her judges' seat on The Voice, but that doesn't seem to be affecting her earnings. The pop star brings in a reported $12.5 million for each season as a judge/coach.

11. Adam Levine

Allowing a camera crew to document your life is all well and good, but the real money is in evaluating talent. Sources say Adam Levine pulls in between $10 and $12 million as one of the chair-spinning A-listers on The Voice.

10. The Kardashians

Keeping up with the kardashians promo pic season 9
The K-Clan pulls in about $25 million a season, which sounds like a lot, until you remember how many ways they have to split it. Kim is the family's top earner (obviously) pulling an estimated $18 million a year from her shows, product lines and endorsements.
