Keith Urban describes the invitation
to be a judge on American Idol as “part of one big fell swoop.” In an interview
with an Australian radio show
, he admitted he’s been asked if he’d be interested in sitting at that judges’ table. “They
did reach out to us. But they’ve been reaching out to a lot of people, so I think they are just figuring out which way they
are going to go,” he said. “All I can say right now is that I’m trying to make an album, and it’s strange how these opportunities
seem to all come in one big fell swoop.” Urban says his priority is just making the new album. Elsewhere in the interview,
he talks about his own path to stardom and how he spent his early days in Nashville just pining for a bus. After spending
years and years driving around to gigs crammed in a van, Urban says he thought, “God, I hope one day I get a tour bus.” He
added, “It was nice to finally then get a bus. I do have a nice bus, and it’s not lost on me either. There are some nights
I look down the hallway to the front lounge and I think, ‘Good god, I have a bus.’ Now it’s a whole different beast.”
