Nicole And Keith's Perfect Place

It might be an unlikely spot for a couple of Australians to find their dream home, but Keith Urban says there's something about the land near Leipers Fork, Tennessee, a half-hour southwest of Nashville, that he and wife Nicole Kidman both love. "The first place I took her to [even before house-hunting] was out near Leipers Fork," the country singer tells The Tennessean. "That ended up being out in the general area where we will now call home. I just knew that she would love it for the exact same reasons I love it. There's a pace and a way of living that is much more spiritually satisfying to me than a lot of other places."

Keith and Nicole purchased a farm in the area this year and are now renovating it. For the megawatt couple, it offers a measure of solitude – but not so much that it's oppressive. "It's something that has quite a bit of room to walk around and grow some grass under our feet and have some privacy, but not feel like we're isolated," Keith says. "We don't want to live in a compound. It's the great thing about Tennessee and especially Nashville. The people are just real people, so they just accept you being neighbors."

Keith has been away for much of the year, touring internationally and accompanying Nicole on a film shoot in Australia. He returns to Nashville on Friday night for a big concert at the Sommet Center – and is thrilled to be back. "It's not just the humongous guest list," he jokes. "I am looking forward to it. This is the longest that I've ever been away from Nashville, so it feels good to be able to come home and play as well."

Dental hygiene is vasty important to complete wellness. Most people don't believe of their oral hygiene as a part of their wellness, but many wellbeing related issues stem from infections in the mouth. See your dentist twice a year and prevent any unecessary health problems that could have been avoided should you did your 2 yearly check ups.
