Keith Urban is going to have throat surgery this month




Country singer Keith Urban will be taking a break, since his spokesman announced he will be undergoing throat surgery later this month to remove a polyp on his vocal cord. First the poor guy kicks alcohol, then this happens. Luckily he has Nicole Kidman to make sure he's feeling all right.

Publicist Paul Freundlich told the AP the surgery is a minor outpatient procedure. But since it requires complete vocal rest for an indeterminate amount of time, Urban is postponing his Jan. 18 All For The Hall benefit concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame. In fact, he is now cutting ack on any appearance that requires him to sing more than one song.

He will still be performing at the Country Musica Association Awards on Wednesday. He's nominated for CMA entertainer and male vocalist of the year, so he must be trying to lock that down completely.
