Brad Will Hang With Keith After the Aussie’s Vocal Surgery

“I’ll do all the talking . . . he can just nod and grunt and do whatever he’s allowed to do,” says Brad.

Though Keith Urban is still in recovery and will be unable to speak for several weeks after undergoing recent surgery to remove a polyp from his vocal cord, Brad Paisley says that won’t stop him from hanging out with his Aussie buddy and fellow “guitar junkie.”

Brad says the two friends have plans to hang out and let their guitars do all the talking. “We’re big guitar junkies, and we wanted to get together and maybe go through some amplifiers and go through some gear,” Brad told the Associated Press.

“I told him, ‘Let’s do that. You don’t have to talk. We’ll get together. We’ll play guitar, set up some amps, go through some tubes, try some stuff out and tweak.’” Brad continued. “I’ll do all the talking, which I am very capable of. He can just nod and grunt and do whatever he’s allowed to do.”

The talkative singer says he can’t imagine not being able to speak for several weeks, though he thinks Keith’s wife, Nicole Kidman, has a unique situation.

“I’m sure Nicole loves it. It’s got to be great for her,” Brad joked.
