“It’s really hard on the parents who are having to juggle their own jobs and responsibilities and try to be teachers as well.”
Urban joked that Nicole does the heavy lifting, pointing out that he “dropped out” of school at 15.
Although they have a home in Nashville, Keith and Nicole have been based in Australia since the start of the pandemic last year.
The pair have been keeping busy during their time Down Under, with Keith returning to his role as a coach on The Voice Australia and Nicole filming a number of projects.
