How much does Aussie Keith Urban love America?
Enough that Keith—for his 24th birthday—decided to salute his new country of choice with a sizable tattoo of an eagle over his right shoulder blade.
“I got an eagle because I was in America,” the singer reveals in an interview his folks posted  online yesterday (Sept. 8). "I had just been spending time here, I was single and I thought, 'Gosh, it's my birthday, I want to give myself a cool gift.' I thought the eagle just seemed perfect.
“It was American, I had my freedom, and it was something that would be on this journey with me for my whole life.”
