Country crooner Keith Urban is hoping that when it comes to music, it will be like father, like daughter.

The Australian performer, 42, is rooting for his little girl, Sunday Rose, to follow in his musical footsteps.

Find out the meaning behind Sunday's unique first name.

"She's got some pipes," Urban says of his 16-month-old daughter with Nine star Nicole Kidman. "I think she sounds quite musical. I sit at the piano with her in the morning and we mash the keys together."

Urban's wife and daughter, born in July 2008, were top of mind at Sunday's American Music Awards.

How cute were Keith and Nicole on the AMA red carpet?

"I've never won anything with Nic sitting in the audience before," Urban told reporters backstage after his win for Favorite Male Country Artist -- which he dedicated to Kidman and Sunday. "It was beautiful to have [Nicole] there tonight. She's such a huge inspiration for everything I do."

The new dad -- who calls fatherhood "pure bliss" -- says he's excited for Sunday to spend her first Christmas in her parents' native Australia.
