Keith Urban had one particularly scarey dream while he was on total voice rest following vocal chord surgery. Keith was instructed by the doctor to not talk, cry, sneeze, cough or clear his throat. He tells Access Hollywood he was determined to follow doctor's orders but worried that he might unintentionally break the rules, after dreaming that he was belting out a Leo Sayer song. "I woke up the next morning and I called the doctor and [asked], 'Would it be possible that I could sing in my sleep? I was terrified that I was singing in my sleep!" His voice is back, stronger than ever and he is scheduled to sing in public for the first time since the surgery on Feb. 3 at the Grand Ole Opry.
That Oklahoma hospital that Garth Brooks sued is going to have to pay him $1 million dollars for reneging on an agreement to build a women's health center in honor of Garths’ late mother, a jury has ruled. Brooks called the jurors "heroes" and said he felt vindicated by their verdict. "I no longer feel like I’m crazy," he said. The hospital argued that Brooks gave it unrestricted access to the $500,000 donation and only later asked that it build a women’s center and name it after his mother, Colleen Brooks, who died of cancer in 1999.
