The coun­try mu­sic fra­ter­nity gath­ered en masse in Sydney this week as the nom­i­na­tions were an­nounced for Jan­uary’s Golden Gui­tar Awards in Tam­worth, NSW, the tra­di­tional high-end fi­nale to the city’s an­nual coun­try mu­sic fes­ti­val. Sara Storer, Travis Collins and the trio of Kevin Ben­nett, Lyn Bowtell and Felic­ity Urquhart were among the lead­ing con­tenders, but there was a healthy col­lec­tion of new­com­ers who re­ceived nom­i­na­tions for the first time. Chief among them was Mel­bourne duo the Weep­ing Wil­lows, which is up for four tro­phies on the back of its sec­ond al­bum, Be­fore Dark­ness Comes a-Callin’. Con­grat­u­la­tions in the debu­tants cor­ner also to Katie Bri­anna, the Wil­son Pick­ers, Michael Waugh, Justin Stan­d­ley and Fanny Lums­den.

The Weep­ing Wil­lows are up for four gongs
