COUNTRY MUSIC TELEVISION's FLAMEWORTHY VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS show.

Keith dedicated his video of the year award for AMERICAN SOLDIER to the US forces in the Middle East - and delivered a harsh message to Anti-War campaigners.

He says, "This is a very important award for me because this is voted on by music lovers all over the place. I thank you all. Don't forget our brothers and sisters overseas making it free for us tonight.

"It's a really nasty thing going on over there right now. All the anti-war people are standing around saying 'I told you so', but there were a lot of reasons for them going over there and they had no choice."
