Australian country star Keith Urban was rewarded for staying up late last night (17MAY05) - with a Best Album prize.

After his BE HERE album was named the year's best at the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS in Las Vegas, Nevada, the singer was beamed live via satellite after performing in Belfast, Ireland.

The thrilled star said, "It's like 20 to two in the morning and this is, like, the best wake-up call I've ever had."
