Best Country Duo/Group Performance: “Highway Don’t Care” with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift
What do you think of this year’s Grammy Nominations concert?
It’s a blast. And getting to play with Miguel was great. I love him, and I’m glad I got to play with him tonight.
Can you talk about your new hairstyle? Was it your idea or your wife Nicole Kidman’s idea?
I just wanted to cut it all off.
What do you have planned for 2014?
More touring. Our tour’s going to continue through Canada in January. And then we back down to Australia in June. And then we start a big U.S. tour in July.
What do you think of Lorde?
She’s incredible. She’s deeply, deeply gifted. And that song “Royals” is just a work of art.
