They’re the Aussie stars who have always stayed true to their roots and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban proved that despite being halfway across the world, their thoughts are with the desperate drought-stricken farmers battling to save their livelihood.

Despite country singer Keith currently being on tour in the US, the star and his Big Little Lies actress wife appeared on the TODAY show to pledge money to the Farm Aid Telethon.

“We love Australia and we realise that there’s been a crippling drought crisis and the rural communities are doing it really, really hard right now so we want to do our bit,” Nicole told the TODAY show.

“We would like to donate $100,000 to the Farm Aid Telethon.”

Sitting side-by-side and looking into each other’s eyes during the somber message, the celebrity couple also urged others to dig into their pockets to help struggling farmers.

“Any little thing you can give makes a big difference,” added Keith.

Keith and Nicole aren’t the only Aussie legends pledging time and money to the cause.

John Farnham, Guy Sebastian and country star Adam Harvey are set to headline ‘Hay Mate: Buy a Bale — A Concert For The Farmers’ in Tamworth on October 27.
