Today's Country Tidbits

Nicole Kidman, snake lover? Apparently so. She and hubby Keith Urban have a Tennessee farm, where they raise alpacas. Daughter Sunday Rose loves to take the alpacas for walks, and Nicole admires them for their sweet nature and lovely long eyelashes. But she's expressed the desire to add more odd pets to the collection: snakes. Says Nicole, “I'd love to get snakes, I love them. They might not be a good idea around the baby though." Hmmmmm, wonder what sort of snake Nicole has in mind? Must be a big one!

Starting in January, we'll see Taylor Swift in a whole new way - she's the spokesperson for CoverGirl's new NatureLuxe line of cosmetics.

Whoa, Nellie!! According to InTouch magazine, Jake Gyllenhaal has asked Taylor Swift to help him pick out a house in Los Angeles. According to the report, he's pretty sure she's "the one" and wants to be sure his house suits her taste. This after only a few weeks of dating? Either he's moving too fast or the magazine is making stuff up. No word on Taylor's take on all of this.

Using the same attorney who got him off on the 1994 pot charges, Willie Nelson will fight his latest misdemeanor pot possession charge. Joe Turner isn't revealing his strategy, but does say he's trying to "produce another miracle" for Willie.

Keith Urban is on the Ellen Degeneres Show today.

The tweet of the day is from Gloriana's Tom Gossin: "I think manual transmissions should be mandatory...that would solve the whole texting while driving thing!"
