NASHVILLE, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Australian country music star Keith Urban, now living in Nashville, is taking a break from constant big venue concerts, Parade magazine reports.

Instead, Urban will appear at outdoor festivals across the country as part of his Summer Lovin' Tour. He told Parade that gives him more time at home with his wife, actress Nicole Kidman, and their 2-year-old daughter, Sunday.

"We're in the midst of making a record, so it's been a year of a few shows and a lot of time in the studio," Urban told Parade. "We haven't played outside in a long time. It seems as if a majority of our tours are in arenas, so all the festivals this year have been wonderful. It's just been great to play for a lot of people who probably haven't seen us play. Every night, faces of strangers out there singing along every word and just the energy in the audience is really amazing. It's all pretty magical to me."
