From that moment, the idea to have the  actress on his album was born.  

"I already had that song in my head, because I knew that it would fit Nicole's voice very well, that I could blend our voices," Evans said. "So I sent them the track, and Keith was like, 'Genius – I couldn't have thought of a better track.'"

Kidman’s vocals were recorded at Urban’s Nashville studio. "He sent me a little video of her in the booth recording.

And she loved every minute of it. She was so grateful that I'd asked her. I was, like, grateful? You have no idea how grateful I am! But she's a lovely woman, and a friend, and very generous with their time. To do something like this was really special," Evans shared.  

The actor took to his Instagram to share a video of him and Kidman recording the song. 

"Say Something, a duet from my new album, A Song For You, featuring the phenomenal @nicolekidman, is out now….

"Say Something" comes after Kidman  over the summer. Although the Oscar-winning actress appeared onstage, it was not to sing, just to help her man with his wardrobe.  

Kidman put her singing chops on display during her role in  Ryan Murphy’s  and in 2020’s .  

In 2017, Kidman, who sang backing vocals on Urban’s "The Female," shared  and how she only did it for her husband.  

"I went down [to sing vocals] and I did it because he asked me to," she told ET. "He knows I have no confidence when it comes to singing. So I'll sing for him and that's it."
