It’s been a marquee year for Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.
Kidman captured the attention of millions for hallmark success in HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and some very curious clapping at the Oscar’s:

Urban’s had a pretty stellar year, too. Rolling Stone has lauded the artist’s latest album, “Ripcord,” his “widest-reaching album to date.”
And it seems like critics across the board agree.
The “Wasted Time” singer scored big at Wednesday night’s CMT Music Awards in Nashville. He cleaned up in category after category, including Video of the Year, Collaborative Video of the Year, Social Superstar and Male Video of the Year.
But Urban will tell you he didn’t get there alone.
He credits “every little piece” of his continued success to Kidman.
During his Male Video of the Year speech, the Australian native took a little time to express his love and appreciation for his wife:
“I want to say a massive thank you to my wife, Nicole. You have no idea how much of what I do … she’s involved in every little piece of it … she hates me saying this, but I want it to be said. She helps me so much making these videos what they are.
While Kidman blushed in the crowd, the father of two reserved a special shoutout for their young daughters, Sunday and Faith:
“To our little girls at home, Sunny and Fifi, we’re going to bring you next time for sure!”
Earlier this year, Kidman opened up about her husband’s touching tributes at the ACM Awards:
“He writes these things — they come out of I don’t know — and they’re like beautiful gifts.”
Fan’s gushed for the couple’s “sweet” moment on Twitter:
