Keith Urban to host music’s night of nights

THE country road is about to bring Keith Urban home with the superstar set to host this year's ARIAs more than a decade after he last attended the awards.

"It is going to be as fun as hell," Urban told The Daily Telegraph.

"It is only rock'n'roll but I like it. It is a huge music night, something that is right up my alley obviously."

Urban will host the 32nd annual ARIA Awards at The Star on November 28, but it unknown if Oscar-winning superstar wife, Nicole Kidman, will be with him, although she is a regular fixture at big US music events with Urban.

Urban has five ARIA Awards and four Grammys and released his chart-topping 10th studio album, Graffiti U earlier this year.

"I love being here," the Nashville-based Urban said of Australia.

"It has definitely not been some long range plan … I just sort of do the next thing and literally follow the music."

ARIA Award nominees will be announced next month with the ceremony broadcast on Channel 9.
