Keith Urban and Oprah
PAGE 2
Keith's life hasn't always lined up. In 2006, a few months after he and Nicole married, he says he was faced with a decision. An addiction to alcohol and drugs—mainly cocaine—had taken over his life. "I had to make a decision which road I was going to take, once and for all," Keith says. "I'd been at that crossroads before and always taken the wrong road."

"What was different about this time?" Oprah asks.

"Love," Keith says.

At the time, Keith says he knew that if he didn't surrender and commit to overcoming his addiction, he'd repeat past mistakes. "[I thought], 'So maybe if I really want to be courageous and adventurous, let's take the road less traveled this time,'" he says. "It was a huge hole in my life that was going to be filled by the right thing eventually, or it was always going to be filled by the wrong thing."
