Keith Urban Opens Up About Past Addiction on Ellen

Posted by Christina Forte on 12/13/2010
After a performance of  "Put You in a Song" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Keith Urban sat down with the host and opened up about his past addiction to drugs and alcohol.
The singer shocked fans and new wife, Nicole Kidman, when he entered rehab just four months after getting married.
"The truth is that I wasn't even aware of where it was at in my life and how it was just going to come down and take me down like it did," he told Degeneres. "I was probably in such a state of denial that I consciously wasn't aware of it."
Urban has been clean and sober for almost four years now and is concentrating on his career and his family, especially his two-year-old daughter, "Sunny" Rose, who has taken an interest in music herself.
"She sings all the time," Urban said with the grin of a proud parent. "If [being in this business] is a natural thing for her and if she's passionate about it, then [I will] absolutely [encourage her to pursue it]."
