Sure, millions around the world have paid to see Keith Urban perform. But for Keith's 3-year-old daughter, Sunday Rose, it's Sesame Street's Elmo who is her entertainment hero.
“Elmo has God-like mythical status at our house at this stage,” Keith tells The Tennessean newspaper .
“This morning I was woken up [at 7] with our daughter Sunday coming in singing the theme to Sesame Street, so what a superb way to wake up in the morning,” Keith says. “That’s kind of a sleep-in for me, which is normally getting up at 6 with the kids.”
So how does Keith wake up with the kids after playing a late-night gig? Plenty of alarm clocks.
“When I get home if I go to bed at 2 in the morning, it’s pretty hard getting up at 6, but I don’t want to get up at 10 and miss all the morning with my wife and my daughters,” he tells the newspaper. “So, I just push through. If I get home at 2, I’ll get up at 6 and have breakfast with everybody and then I’ll sneak back to bed for an hour or so. My wife will work out, I'll go back to bed.”
