The 8th Annual American Veteran Awards telecast will be on The History Channel on Sunday, February 9, 2003 at 7:00 PM ET/PT. (Check local listings.) The awards ceremonies were taped in November 2002. It was in this latest presentation that the American Veteran Awards, a project of Veterans Foundation, Inc. introduced a new award - the Elvis Presley Best Patriotic Song Award. The first Elvis award was presented to country duo Brooks & Dunn for their song Only in America.
The AVA contacted Graceland/EPE seeking permission to name the award in honor of Elvis and asking our cooperation and assistance. Our thanks to the AVA for this wonderful recognition for Elvis and our congratulations to Brooks & Dunn for being the first recipients.
