Urban Honoured By Acm

KEITH URBAN was among the stars honoured by the Academy of Country Music (ACM) in Tennessee on Monday night (20Sep10), winning praise for his long-running international career.
The big names of country music gathered at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium for the star-studded show which saw performances from acts including John Rich, Kenny Rogers and Martina MCBride.
Urban was presented with the Jim Reeves International Award and he used his acceptance speech to relive the moment he was introduced to country music at a Johnny Cash concert when he was just a child.
He told the crowd, "I couldn't say it was life-changing - I was five years old. But it was impactful. This music is global. It crosses all language barriers."
Jeff Bridges' Oscar-winning movie Crazy Heart was also singled out for praise, winning the Tex Ritter Award for films which promote country music.
The event was hosted by singer Lee Ann Womack and other honours were dished out to a variety of songwriters, producers and musicians for the contributions to the genre.
