keith urban father dies

This is so sad.

On Saturday, Keith Urban's father Robert passed away only days after the American Idol judge revealed his parent had entered hospice care.

In a new statement, Nicole Kidman's husband shared:

"I've been deeply touched by the outpouring of love and support that Nic and I, and our family, have received since my Dad's passing on Saturday night. His long battle with cancer is now over and he is finally at peace."

Tragic. The Raise 'Em Up performer's poppa had been battling cancer for some time.

Keith Urban Reveals His Father Is In Hospice Care & Only Has A Few Weeks To Live

Keith Urban had a bittersweet tour of his new Country Music Hall of Fame exhibit on Wednesday.

While surrounded by all of his accomplishments, Nicole Kidman's husband couldn't help but credit his father — who he revealed is under hospice care — for inspiring his love of country music.

The 48-year-old Somebody Like You singer shared the emotional news with The Tennessean:

"He's probably only got a few weeks, if that. I've just been dealing with that the last couple of days. This has all come at a very strange time where it's typical of a career that has extreme highs and extreme lows all often at the exact same time. So [the exhibit] is bittersweet a little bit because [my dad] is the catalyst for all of this. My dad is the catalyst for me living in America."

We can imagine that's incredibly difficult.

The father of two remembered going to the record store as a kid with his dad who insisted on buying a Don Williams album, just because he knew it would be good:

"I remember saying to my dad, 'Oh, what's the single off this album?' And he said, 'I don't know. I haven't heard anything off it.' And I said, 'Well, how do you know it's going to be good?' And he said, 'It's Don Williams.' And it hit me in such a way that I thought, 'Oh, I'd love to make records where people know it's going to be solid and they go out and get it.' So I want to thank them for starting me on this journey."

We're sure his dad is very proud of Urban's own legacy in the country music world!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Urban and his family during this time.

Salma Hayek's Boobs Steal The Attention From Kate Beckinsale & Nicole Kidman At The Evening Standard Awards!

Salma, Kate, Nicole, and Keith hit the red carpet.

Move aside, AMAs!

The Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London are so much fancier than you! #sorrynotsorry

Salma Hayek, Kate Beckinsale, and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were at the posh event on Sunday, and Salma's boobs were totally spilling out!

The actress put everyone else to shame!

Kate and Nicole didn't have their own cleavage all over the place, but they held their own in pretty patterned dresses.

Kate's Alberta Ferretti gown featured a pastel floral print while Nic stood out thanks to a lace-paneled long-feathered bird all over her high-neck Alexander McQueen gown.

This is also Miz Beckinsale's first public appearance since news of her divorce from Len Wiseman. And she looked pretty happy!

We can't forget Keith, though — he rocked it out in a classic black suit!

Well done, guys!
