Country music artist Fanny Lumsden topped the nominations for the 2021 Australian Country Music Awards, also known as the Golden Guitars, which appear in seven categories.
The awards are scheduled to continue live in Tamworth on January 23 despite the cancellation – due to COVID-19 – of the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival, which usually precedes it..
Lumsden and her husband Dan Freeman nearly didn’t attend this year’s festival after a huge fire threatened their home in Touma, in southern NSW..
But stories of resilience inspired a lot of work on their album Fallow, which was nominated for the prestigious Album of the Year award..
Lumsden has also received nominations for this year’s Alt-County Album, Song of the Year, Single of Year, Heritage Song of the Year, Video of Year and Female Artist of Year.
Sister group The McClymonts received six nominations, including for this year’s Contemporary Country Album, and for their sixth album, Mayhem to Madness.
Travis Collins is also nominated for six from his new album, Wreck Me.
Local Tamworth’s Alison Forbes was nominated in four categories for their debut album Bonedigger, while Tamworth – now Newcastle-based – Hurricane Fall will compete in this year’s duo group category.
Industry stars Adam Harvey and Lee Kernaghan were nominated in this year’s Voice Collaboration category for Ramblin ‘Fever..
If Kernaghan manages to win an award this year, he will overtake Slim Dusty as the record holder for most Golden Guitar Awards.
The 2021 Golden Guitar Awards are set to be a time to celebrate this industry, which has gone through a difficult year as the global pandemic shut down many opportunities for musicians to earn a living from playing gigs
Tamworth Deputy Mayor Phil Bates acknowledged the current climate and praised the artists who continued to produce their music..
“We are looking forward to the (Awards) event in January and to see the nominees who are here today, so that we can enjoy the prizes again as usual..
Dan Biddle, president of the Australian Country Music Association, said the industry appreciates Tamworth’s commitment to the music genre.
“No other regional city in Australia invests in music of any kind or supports it to the level that Tamworth offers,” he said.
“The fact that we received record numbers of entries in a number of categories shows that our artists and their bands will ensure that this golden age of Australian country music continues, regardless of the challenges it may face..
At one point it appeared that the 2021 Golden Guitars Awards would only be online, but the organizers are now confident that a live show on Tamworth will continue and will also be broadcast on ABC..
