2019 West Australian Country Music Awards finalists announced

13 Feb 2019

The finalists for this year’s West Australian Country Music Awards presented by LiveLighter have been announced, with a long list of locally-grown talent from around the state up for accolades.

Groups and individual artists from the Perth metro area as well as Australind, Boyup Brook, Bridgetown, Broome, Busselton and Gelorup and are among those vying for honours this week.

Topping the lists of finalists are Connie Kis Andersen, John Bennett and Julie Kember who have each picked up three awards nominations.

Winners in categories ranging from Group of the Year to Songwriter of the Year will be named in Boyup Brook’s Music Park on Friday February 15 as part of WA’s biggest celebration of country music – the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival presented by LiveLighter.

The winners of several categories will get the opportunity to perform live in front of the audience that attends the annual festival, which takes place between Friday February 15 and Sunday February 17.

 

Now in its 34th year, the awards recognise and support outstanding WA artists who are serious about pursuing a career in country music.

 

Festival music director Sharon Winter said the awards, which are organised by the Country Music Club of Boyup Brook, highlight the work of elite country artists in Western Australia and honour the accomplishments of the industry’s rising stars.

 

“Past award winners have gone on to be a part of the CMAA Academy of Country Music, Star Maker, Australian Idol and Australia’s Got Talent as well as excelling in the country music scene in America,” she said.

 

“The judges are experienced country music industry professionals from all over Australia and overseas and the calibre of the amazing talent that nominate for the awards attests to the success of this event.”

Past winners include Karin Page, Kate Hindle, Celeste Clabburn, Chelsea Basham and Codee Lee.
