Listen to Keith Urban on iHeartRadio

Keith Urban appears on Monday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he talks about the new “American Idol” team and staying in touch with wife Nicole Kidman when they’re working on different continents.

He explains that the couple never texts or emails, instead calling each other on the phone.

Well, almost always.

“Maybe one text, maybe one cool kind of… a year… you know, one of those kinds of texts,” says Urban.

DeGeneres asks for clarification.

Urban bashfully admits that there’s some “nice sex texting.”

“I’m a little red right now,” laughs Urban.
