stars. All money raised by the program benefits St. Jude, the world's

Life's too short."
And, he exposes deeper thoughts on the May page, "It's all about being
honest with yourself. That's really it. If you can go to bed every night
knowing you were as honest with yourself as you could be, life in general
starts to get a whole lot easier."

Keith Urban keeps his word
NORTH WILKESBORO, North Carolina (AP) -- Country singer and recent Grammy winner Keith Urban will travel to North Carolina Friday to make good on a 5-year-old handshake agreement.

Urban will appear at the Specialty Car Co., where he bought a 1994 Chevy Impala in 2001 using his first royalty check from his hit "But For the Grace of God."

"The dealer took $2,000 off the asking price, as long as I agreed to make an appearance at his dealership some time in the future," Urban said in a written statement. "It's taken long enough, but I've finally got back to town to settle up."

The car was in mint condition with only 3,000 miles when Urban bought it, said Specialty Car's Phil Stevens.

"I never thought that someone who had achieved what Keith has achieved since we first met would find the time to remember a simple handshake promise," Stevens said.

Last week, Urban won the Grammy for best male country vocal performance for "You'll Think of Me."
