I have met Keith before during a Meet & Greet, but this was my first Back Stage Experience. The "experience" was different, but I must say I can't choose one as being better. I was hopeful he would choose me to ask a question, as I had a good one. Many had wondered – who were Hank and Evie? I recall the day he thanked the pair – "I'd like to than Hank and Evie out there tonight."
So there he was – Keith Urban – standing right in front of me; damn him for being so good looking. My hand was raised and mine was the last question of the night. I looked him in the eye to get a truthful reply and asked, "WHO……..are Hank and Evie?" "That's a good question," he said. Then he looked away from my eyes and paused, hesitated. At the time I felt surely he was making something up. Maybe however, he was wondering if he wanted to be truthful and divulge something so private; I don't know. But if these were their 'pet names' why would he share that when he won't even share what he last cooked for dinner? He was still pausing and hesitating, and finally said something like, "Hank and Evie were code names my wife and I had when we were first dating. We'd use them in e-mails and such so no one would know, so, Hank and Evie are us." He finally looked back at me, and smiled. Damn him again. He was adorable. But was he lying?
Here's the thing I always wondered…..if Hank and Evie were them, and he was standing on that stage with an award in his hand, why would he thank "Hank and Evie who are out there?" Why wouldn't he just thank Evie? Hank wasn't "out there", he was on the stage (if in fact he is really Hank). And if they were such a "couple", why wouldn't Evie have been there with him that night? That always seemed odd to me. "They" always seem odd to me though, so who knows?
I was recently "featured" in an article about Keith Urban. It was stated, "Urban recently revealed during a pre-concert fan question-and-answer session that in the early days of their relationship Kidman referred to him as Hank, and he to her as Evie." I was that fan. I am now famous! Everyone is going to want my autograph. Andrew Morton will want to write my biography. I am sure he'll include a photo of the pet goat I had as a child (no kidding). I'll wear a see-through dress (with a flesh colored girdle underneath). I am having my boobs done soon so Jamie can take my picture for the cover. In my case, I don't need a "job" – just a lift. (Unlike Nicole Kidman, I have birthed many children.) But, they will be even. I will gain royalties which of course will be split with Urban Myths, as this is where I was "discovered". Maybe I'll even be able to buy the farm!
Someone recently said that the new clothing line should have been called Skank and Stevie - Skank, well that's an obvious choice, but Stevie? That's after our friend, Stevie Wonder because Keith is blinded by Nicole Kidman's forehead.
