Felicity Urquhart, Blake O’Connor & More Score Golden Guitar Awards

Felicity Urquhart is the big winner from this year’s Golden Guitar Awards, taking out six awards. 

Urquhart took out the coveted Album Of The Year award for her work Frozen Rabbit, Female Artist Of The Year, Song Of The Year and more. Her work as part of the Toyota Verandah Sessions short film series was album celebrated. 

“What I love about the Golden Guitars, the night of nights for our industry, is that it doesn’t matter if you don’t win one, because everyone is still part of the family of country music,” said Urquhart. 

“So you’re still happy for a mate to pick up an award because our industry is very community minded and this festival is about more than the music. 

“It really is about celebrating our unique community and that was something that came through in the Verandah sessions that I hosted.

“Through conversations and music, we found we really do have something to celebrate and Toyota should be congratulated for supporting the production of these films that will be shared on social media across the country.”

Blake O’Connor took out the Star Maker Award, while Morgan Evans took out the Contemporary Country Album Of The Year award, as well as Male Artist Of The Year.
