[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Keith Urban[/lastfm] and wife Nicole Kidman visted the set of Oprah for an episode that aired earlier today.  If you did not know this, Keith used to have a substance abuse problem and he actually opened up about his problem and how love and a child solved it for him.

Here are some highlights of today’s Oprah episode:

Keith on the root cause of his alcohol and cocaine addictions: “Ultimately, for me, it was love. [That's the thing that I was missing in my life -- love for myself.] I look back now and realize that … Nic has brought so much into my life.

On why the latest rehab worked: “That was my third time [in rehab] in eight years. I did everything differently this time. I just went off the rails. I knew I needed help and I needed a new direction in my life, and I cannot do this anymore.”

On meeting Nicole for the first time, backstage at a ‘G’Day LA’ event: “I swear to you, she glided across the room … like floated. I don’t know how she did it. It’s like she’s standing there, and she didn’t walk. It was out of this world … I plucked up the courage to go and [say hello], very nervously, and trying to be all cool.
