Keith Urban, who recently completed his treatment for alcohol abuse, will be the musical guest when Forest Whitaker hosts NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on Feb. 10.

The 39-year-old country singer, who has publicly acknowledged a former addiction to cocaine, entered the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on Oct. 19, forcing him to delay the tour and promotional appearances for his latest album, "Love, Pain & the whole crazy thing."

He said he decided to stay three months because he realized that learning to abstain was only part of the recovery process.

He also directed the movies "Waiting to Exhale" and "Hope Floats."
