A 2023 Celebrity Net Worth estimate states that Urban is worth $75 million, which doesn't appear to have changed in the past few years.

Keith Lionel Urban grew up in New Zealand where he started making a name for himself with his incredible skills as a guitarist. When he was 16, he was featured on Australian TV talent show New Faces which helped open some doors. Urban started performing on various TV programs in Australia and even got his own record deal with EMI in 1990.  He was nominated for an ARIA Award for Best Country Album for his self-titled debut and spent the next couple of years touring with Slim Dusty

Finally, Urban took the leap and moved to Nashville in the early '90s. Like many other stars, he got started as a songwriter, writing songs for artists like Toby Keith. 

Urban started his own band,  The Ranch, with drummer Peter Clarke and bassist Jerry Flowers. While The Ranch only released one album with Capitol Nashville, they had two charting singles. Urban also spent much of his time during the '90s playing guitar for other performers including Tim Wilson and Charlie Daniels

In 1999, Urban released his American self-titled debut album. He became the first New Zealand performer to reach the top 10 on the US country Billboard chart with singles "Your Everything" and his first No. 1 "But for the Grace of God." Things came full circle for The Ranch when bassist Jerry Flowers rejoined Urban on his first headlining tour in 2004, the Livin' Right Now Tour, and has played with him on every tour since. 

Urban has released a total of nine studio albums that produced 18 No. 1 songs on the country charts that have become some of his greatest hits including "Somebody Like You," and "You'll Think of Me." He's also had 12 headlining tours and 2 co-headlining tours with Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum and Chris Stapleton. So after all of that, what is Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's individual net worth? 

Urban has been married to Kidman since 2006, so though his net worth may seem inherently "low" by the standards of some celebrities, his marriage means a much higher overall total — the couple are doing just fine. The superstars have two daughters: Sunday Rose Kidman Urban and Faith Margaret Kidman Urban. The family is so sweet and full of love, which you can see when Urban shares glimpses of his personal life on social media. 

The country singer has kept himself pretty busy outside of his music career. He's been a coach on the Australian version of The Voice for one season. The following year, he signed on as a judge for American Idol, where he stayed for 4 seasons.  He  shows aspiring singers what it takes to create incredible albums like Golden Road and Defying Gravity. As if he wasn't busy enough, he also released his own line of special guitars in 2013.

The latest 2023 Celebrity Net Worth estimate puts Kidman, the Australian actress and producer, at an impressive $250 million from her illustrious career in Hollywood. This sum pairs nicely with her husband, which brings them to the hefty combined estimated net worth of $325 million. Not too shabby.

Nicole Mary Kidman was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. She grew up in Sydney, Australia, where she began studying dance and acting at a young age. Enamored with the stage, Kidman dropped out of high school to pursue acting full-time. Her breakout came in 1989 when she starred in the thriller "Dead Calm." From there, Kidman's star rose quickly; Hollywood soon took notice. She won critical acclaim in the 1995 film "To Die For," which marked the beginning of her ascent into international stardom.

In 1990, she met and later married actor Tom Cruise, catapulting her further into the public eye. Although they divorced in 2001, during their time together, they co-starred in several films, including Eyes Wide Shut.

Kidman and Urban have been painting the town red since they tied the knot in 2006, and Kidman isn't one to rest on her laurels. Beyond her acclaimed acting roles in films like Moulin Rouge! and The Hours and her riveting performance in the HBO series Big Little Lies, she's also ventured into production. She served as a producer on several of her film and television projects, further solidifying her role as a major player in the industry. In fact, she's received multiple awards, including an Academy Award, two Primetime Emmy Awards, and five Golden Globe Awards.

And did we mention her philanthropic side? Kidman is a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF and a tireless advocate for women's rights. Talk about a star that shines both on and off the screen.
