Keith Urban was a busy many for the past year. In addition to touring and releasing the new album 'Fuse,' there was his gig on 'American Idol,' along with all the promotion (and side drama) that accompanied it. It might seem like 'Idol' would be a distraction that would negatively effect or detract from his own music. However, that wasn't the case. In fact, it was quite the opposite. His work on the reality show actually helped him gain "fresh perspective" for his latest chart-topper.
