Keith Urban Wishes 'Girlfriend' Nicole Kidman Happy Anniversary!!


Keith Urban turned to social media to share a sweet anniversary sentiment with his wife, Nicole Kidman.

The country superstar posted to Instagram on Sunday (June 25), sharing a selfie of him and Kidman cuddling and smiling into the camera, looking happy and content after more than a decade of settling into domestic bliss.

“Happy Anniversary Babygirl,” Urban writes to accompany the picture, adding, “Eleven years and you still feel like my girlfriend!!!”

The couple married on June 25, 2006, and have since had two children, daughters Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose. They are never shy about their ongoing love story, which appears to be one of Nashville’s most storybook romances. Urban and Kidman often engage in public displays of affection, and he celebrates each anniversary with a social media post. He marked 10 years of marriage in 2006 by sharing a throwback photo of the night he first met Kidman, depicting him with a scraggly beard and his shirt open partway down his chest, while Kidman is decked out in a fringed and beaded black dress.

Carrie Underwood May Have A Little Extra Time On Her Hands...Is Mike Fisher Retiring From the Nashville Predators?!

 

Carrie Underwood might have some more free time in her schedule come next hockey season, according to WKRN, which reports her husband, Nashville Predators player Mike Fisher, may be considering retirement.

The Predators captain becomes an unrestricted free agent as of July 1, the Nashville news station reports, and he’s not quite sure what he’s going to do yet.

“I want to separate myself from the season and get some quiet time, kind of away, prayer and just figure out my decision,” Fisher says. “It’s not an easy decision, no question. Lots of positives to both, but it’ll take time. I know it’ll come. I’ll try not to put any pressure on myself.”

Ryan Seacrest : Apparently the Money's Good ... But Title is Everything

Ryan Seacrest's "done deal" to host the reboot of "American Idol" has hit a snag ... but it's not over money.

TMZ broke the story ... Seacrest and Fremantle Media and Core Media -- the producers of "American Idol"-- have agreed on his salary ... somewhere between $10 million and $15 million, substantially less than Katy Perry's $25M paycheck but definitely not chump change -- but he wants more than a "Host" title.

Colt Ford Fan Steals the Mic, and Then He Steals the Show

The Ken Doll reboot

gq.com

 Mattel design center, in El Segundo, California, is sort of like the Pentagon, except it’s very difficult to get into. In addition to submitting a government ID for electronic scanning and wearing a prominently displayed visitor’s badge for the duration of their time on site, guests must sign an NDA at the reception area. The design center is where the company’s ultra-confidential toy prototypes are invented before being discreetly sent abroad for manufacturing. It is Mattel’s version of the Wonka factory, and, accordingly, every outsider is treated with suspicion.

Orlando Magic have the 6th pick in the NBA Draft.

orlandosentinel.com

The Orlando Magic received the sixth pick in the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night.

Most experts predict University of Washington point guard Markelle Fultz, UCLA point guard Lonzo Ball, Kansas small forward Josh Jackson, Duke small forward Jayson Tatum and probably Kentucky point De’Aaron Fox already will be chosen before the Magic make their first selection.

In that scenario, the Magic could choose between North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith Jr., Kentucky shooting guard Malik Monk and several others.

Matt Lloyd, the Magic’s interim general manager, said the team likely will consider a “hefty” number of players at No. 6.

Idol coming back to ABC. Is Ryan Seacrest going to host?

tmz.com

Ryan Seacrest sounds like he's game for round two of "American Idol."

TMZ broke the story..."Idol" is coming back in March, 2018 on ABC. We got Ryan and GF Shayna in NYC Saturday night and he certainly didn't shut down the possibility of hosting the show again.

As we reported ... the new gig has almost super-human strings attached, requiring him tofly coast to coast twice in two days in the middle of the night each week to pull it off. Ryan seems to think he's up to the task... with an L.A. Fitness membership.

BTW... we got him going in to Le Bernardin restaurant in NYC. It's super expensive, so we're guessing he's banking on "A.I." money to pay the check.

Is American Idol coming back... Without Ryan Seacrest?

tmz.com
"American Idol" has only been off the air a year, but seems it's still the hottest property out there, because we've learned ABC has now made an offer to buy the show.
Sources at ABC and Fremantle -- the company that produces the show -- tell TMZ the network contacted Fremantle last week and made the bid. We're told the network wanted to reboot the show for a March 2018 premiere.
We're also told ABC inquired about making Ryan Seacrest the host, but even last week the network knew it was on the verge of signing Ryan as co-host of 'Live' with Kelly Ripa. As a result, we're told ABC asked if the show could be shot in New York, which is now Ryan's home base. Our sources say Fremantle made it clear ... NYC was a no-go. The show will be shot in L.A.

Atheletes who could've gone Country

tasteofcountry.com

 

Country music is full of amateur athletes who dreamed of playing in the NFL, MLB or NHL, but very few actually found success on and off the field. Here are 12 who gave up a professional athlete’s paycheck for the dream of making country music.
One or two of them you’ll know better for their music careers, but the majority were stars on the field, course or ice. You won’t find college football studs Lee Brice or Chase Rice, nor will you find Major League Baseball prospect Brett Young. Track star Garth Brooks doesn’t make this list, either (even if photos of him throwing the javelin are the best thing ever).
Quarterback Sam Hunt and college golfer Kip Moore don’t count either, as neither were paid professionally for their services. This list focuses on athletes who went pro. Included are champion golfers, a Super Bowl MVP, several Pro-Bowlers and one professional wrestler. One hockey player even makes the cut, but in all our research, we couldn’t find an NBA star with serious country cred!

We were very serious,” the singer tells PEOPLE. “My first time was when I was 13, and I have pictures of me buddying up next to Lady A, sweating because I was so nervous to meet them.”

Now, the 23-year-old “Yeah Boy” singer has three chart-topping hits of her own and will be co-hosting the whole shin-dig with Thomas Rhett, who returns for a second year to helm the CMA Fest television special. “It’s definitely a full-circle moment,” she says.

Thomas Rhett is scared of having a girl

people.com

2017 is shaping up to be a pretty solid year for country music singer Thomas Rhett.

In February, he and his wife Lauren announced they were expecting a baby and adopting a child from Africa. And earlier this month, he walked away from the ACM Awards with three new trophies — including male vocalist of the year.

But even with all his new accolades and life changes, Rhett, 27, has never lost focus on his and Lauren’s commitment to charity. They have been very outspoken supporters of the 147 Million Orphans organization, hosting events to raise money for the cause and educating their millions of social media followers about their mission.

Congrats to Alan Jackson on being inducted into the Country HOF

people.com

 

With one of the most celebrated careers in the history of country music, Alan Jackson is often asked if he still has anything left to accomplish. Until now, he hasn’t dared to speak his heart’s desire.

“I never say the Country Music Hall of Fame because I just felt like that was kind of pretentious, you know, to think that I deserve to be in there,” he said, standing in the Hall of Fame Rotunda in Nashville. “I never say that. But now I can say this is about the last dream on the list right here.”

He could say it because, on Wednesday, that “last dream” finally came true when the Country Music Association announced Jackson is among the 2017 class of Hall of Fame inductees. The 58-year-old Georgia native joins the late guitar slinger Jerry Reed, who will be inducted as the “veterans-era artist,” and “The Gambler” songwriter Don Schlitz, who is being honored in the category dedicated to non-performers.

Happy National Pi day. Where to get deals today.

bankrate.com

3.14159.

Pretty boring number, right? Not if you’re a math and science enthusiast. If you’re into numbers, it’s pi, an irrational and transcendental number with more than a trillion digits after its decimal point. But when you round it off to just two numbers after its decimal point, it’s 3.14 — or March 14 — which just so happens to be Albert Einstein’s birthday.
