Kidman arrived at the CMT Awards at the side of her country singer husband Urban, who was nominated and scheduled to perform during the awards show. The two put on a loved-up display on the red carpet before taking their front row seat at the event.
The American Idol judge, one of 11 performers during the awards show, debuted his new song “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” while Kidman watched from the audience. Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Zac Brown Band and Luke Bryan also hit the stage during the fan-voted show.
“[‘John Couger, John Deere, John 3:16’] was sent to me a few months ago by one of the songwriters, and I loved it immediately — loved it so much that right before I walked out on stage at the Ryman for CRS a few months back, I thought I’d play the song solo acoustic to see what the audience thought,” Urban told The Boot.
“Flash forward, and there’s no doubt that their response that day helped make it the first single from what will be my next album,” explains Urban.
Urban was nominated in the Male Video of the Year category for “Somewhere in My Car,” but the award went to Bryan for “Play It Again.”
Bentley, who also lost out to Bryan in the Male Video of the Year category, was up for Video of the Year for “Drunk on a Plane,” but was bested by Underwood’s “Something in the Water.”
