Urban Pulls Out Of Cmas

LATEST: Troubled country star KEITH URBAN has pulled out of a planned performance at the 40th annual Country Music Association (CMA) to allow himself more time to tackle his alcoholism. The singer, who is married to actress NICOLE KIDMAN, checked himself into a rehab facility last week (ends20OCT06). Urban issued an official statement about his "relapse" to fans through his publicist, who has since confirmed the Aussie will not be performing at the CMAs on 6 November (06), as planned. Publicist JUDY MCDONOUGH states the singer has cancelled all immediate promotional appearances. Urban, who has a history of cocaine and alcohol abuse, is nominated for four awards at next month's CMAs, including Song of The Year for TONIGHT I WANNA CRY and the coveted Entertainer of the Year honour. Despite the problems swirling around his personal life, Urban's new album, LOVE, PAIN + THE WHOLE CRAZY THING, will be released as planned on 7 November (06). Meanwhile, Kidman has been forced to cancel a press conference later today (23OCT06) to promote her new movie FUR.
