Triumphant Keith Pays Tribute To American Soldiers

Patriotic star TOBY KEITH paid tribute to American soldiers occupying Iraq as he collected three awards at Wednesday's (21APR04)

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."

KENNY CHESNEY, SHANIA TWAIN, REBA MCENTIRE and DIERKS BENTLEY were amongst the winners at the night, hosted by DOLLY PARTON in Nashville, Tennessee.
