Watch: Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban Steal 2016 CMAs Red Carpet

Over at the Kidman-Urban house, they do camping just a bit differently.

"We go glamping," Keith Urban told E!'s Carissa Culiner on the red carpet of the 2016 CMA Awards. "We camp in the backyard," Nicole Kidman echoed. "We sleep in the tent and then we go into the house halfway through the night."

Thanks to Urban's recent 49th birthday, he's now the owner of a new telescope and tent—perfect essentials for the family's outdoor adventures, even if they only last for a few hours. His wife of ten years and their two daughters, Sunday Rose and Faith Margaret, presented him with the useful gifts and a "Big Cat Daddy" cake—a potential reference to Brooks and Dunn's 1995 track, "Little Miss Honky Tonk." As the song goes, "I'm her big cat daddy, she's my little Miss Honky Tonk."

However, as he sweetly described to Culiner, Urban was just happy his three best girls were there to celebrate with him. "Their presence was special," he gushed.

After a decade of marriage, the couple looked forever in love as they walked arm in arm on the red carpet at Tennessee's Bridgestone Arena for the 50th annual awards ceremony.

Later on in the night, the four-time nominee took the stage to perform his current hit, "Blue Ain't Your Color," backed by a string section and covered in blue mood lighting. 


While he unfortunately did not go home with any statues this time around, Urban won America's heart all the same.
