Keith Urban Talks Touring, His Family and His Favorite Countries to Visit—Watch Now!

Keith Urban is everywhere these days. No, seriously, he's literally everywhere!

As he juggles a full commitment to American Idol, recording a new studio album and dashing to foreign countries for press, the country star and father of two with spouse Nicole Kidman somehow manages the load. 

E! recently found time to quickly catch up with the dashing dad to dish about balancing touring life with family life, and which countries he's eager to perform for. 

 Keith Urban gives the scoop on hopeful country-singing contestants on Idol

While the singer is often found on the road, he makes sure time away from his family doesn't extend for too long. "I don't go for weeks and weeks at a time," he said. "When we go international, we bring the kids with us." 

Keith says his daughters have grown used to his unpredictable traveling schedule: "Traveling is all I've done since the minute they were born...most of them are just gypsy kids!" he joked. 

And traveling and jet-setting are certainly embedded in this famous family. The 45-year-old told us that Nicole is currently shooting a film in France—the kind of thing that's just a commonplace issue in the Oscar- and Grammy-winning Urban household.

Keith is eager to return to music and jump-start his tour when American Idol wraps. His favorite destinations? "Touring-wise I'm anxious to get back to Europe—haven't been there in a few years," he told E! while rattling off a few of his go-to European nations. 

Whether he's wearing the reality TV hat or the musician hat, the busy Aussie always makes time for his two adorable little girls, Sunday and Faith

The devoted dad was spotted catching a flight to London on Thursday with sleepy 2-year-old Faith nestled in his arms.

So cute! 

Keith is not the only famous father trying to balance it all. Check out these other newbie celebrity dads!
