The CMT Music Awards got off to a perfect start courtesy of none other than Keith Urban. With a banjo strapped around his neck and Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris by his side, Keith delivered a rousing performance of his hit song “Wasted Time.” You can watch the full performance and other show moments here.
More importantly, Keith’s wife, Nicole Kidman, was seen giving her nod of approval as the song concluded.
Country fans know darn well that Nicole has long shown her love for the song. Earlier this year, Nicole shared a Facebook video of her singing and dancing to the song as she was seated in a makeup chair getting ready to shoot her new HBO series, “Big Little Lies.” Nicole even gushed over the song before the show. “I love it,” Nicole said, according to People Magazine. “All I can say is thank God for Carrie Underwood because it’s so easy to lip sync to her – she’s so good!”
Keith was just one of the many performers slated to take the CMT Music Awards stage, which also welcomed the likes of Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.
