If country fans tuned in to watch the Oscars this past weekend looking for Keith Urban and his wife Nicole Kidman, they were disappointed, as the couple were nowhere to be found.

Urban explained to Orlando’s K92.3 hosts AJ & Ashley why he wasn’t seen on the red carpet and whether he and Kidman will be attending the ACM Awards together this April in Las Vegas.

“I’ve been in the studio this weekend feverously trying to get my record done and we couldn’t be in two places at once, unfortunately,” the singer says of missing the 88th annual Academy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 28).

Urban is in the studio working on his eighth album Ripcord, which is due out later this year. His second single off the album, “Break on Me,” recently went to No. 1 and follows the album’s first single, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” which also rose to No. 1.

The singer will head to Las Vegas next month for the ACM Awards, as he’s booked as a performer. So, will his wife attend with him?

“Yes, we’re still working on that,” he tells the radio station. “Hopefully. She’s got a couple of projects going on right now. One of them might clash. We’re working hard to have us both be able to go.”

Urban further explains that he needs his wife by his side, because takes fashion advice from her both on and off the red carpet.

“I always ask her what should I wear, always. If I’m just going out to dinner I’ll be like, ‘What’s this like?'” he says. “She’s great with all that. I like my wife to like what I’m wearing, that’s important to me.”

The love between Urban and Kidman is apparent, as they’re continually praising each other in interviews. It’s something the singer cherishes.

“We are really blessed that we found each other and just don’t take it for granted.”
