DUMB + DUMBER star Jeff Daniels braved sound problems at the CMT MUSIC AWARDS in Nashville, Tennessee last night (11APR05) to show off his musical skills.

The actor surprised guests at the country music video prizegiving when he showed up on stage with a cowboy hat and a guitar and sang a comical tune all about drinking and womanising, which included all the titles of the night's nominees.

And Daniels didn't falter when his faulty microphone had to be replaced midway through the song.

He was joined on stage at the Gaylord Entertainment Center by a roadie who held up cards of the nominated videos as Daniels namechecked them.

The actor admits he had a great time at the awards ceremony: "They're all good people, and there's a passion for country music."
