Keith Urban has a bit of a taste for the retro

HollywoodNews.com: Sounds like country super star Keith Urban has a bit of a taste for the retro. At least, that’s the sense one gets from the selection of summer “Must Haves” that the artist gave to Entertainment Weekly for its comprehensive summertime entertainment double issue, due on stands 5/27. Keith, who heads out on the North American leg of his “Get Closer” tour June 16, insists he must have the following (but wait! No mention of Nicole Kidman and their girls?) :

1) My Boom Box. “I have an old Sony ghetto blaster from the ’80s that I got on eBay a long time ago. It’s one of the huge ones with a cassette deck in it, and sometimes we’ll set deck chairs under the bus awning and crank up a mixtape. I’ve got one that’s got everything from Hank Williams to U2 to Frank Sinatra to Jay-Z to George Strait to old stuff from the ’80s.”

2) My Motorcycles. “I have a Harley- Davidson Fat Boy, a 100th-anniversary one that Kenny Chesney gave me, and I just bought a vintage motorcycle from the ’60s called a Matchless. I love being able to get out and see a lot of places we’re playing. I can get out and drive around the neighborhoods and then mention them during the gig that night, and it’s great because people feel a little more connected, and I feel more connected too.”

3) Sweet Tea. “If a restaurant serves it, I’m a happy camper. I’ll put in a plug for Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea. I’m not associated with them! I just like that tea.”

4) My Banjo. “I have a six string banjo that I’ve had since probably 1995 that I use on all my records. Banjo goes on everything—it’s a bit like whipped cream, really. Well, I guess whipped cream shouldn’t go on fried chicken. But it does seem to fit really well on anything that’s got a groove. I mean, you can play it on ‘Hey Ya!’ by OutKast.”

Okay, but we’re still trying to digest the fact he plays music on a cassette deck.
