Keith Urban to have throat surgery
A spokesman for Keith Urban says the country star will undergo throat surgery later this month to remove a polyp on his vocal chords, The Associated Press reports. A statement from Urban's publicist, Paul Freundlich, says the surgery is a minor outpatient procedure. It will require vocal rest followed by an indefinite period of recuperation. Urban, who is married to Nicole Kidman, is postponing his January "All For The Hall" concert to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Until his surgery, Urban will honor his commitments that require only a one-song performance, such as the Country Music Association Awards Wednesday.
