Jasmine Rae named Australian country artist of the year

Good morning John,

I was very pleased to hear on the news tonight that Jasmine Rae won the Country Music Channel's Australian Artist Of The Year award this evening.

You have played her song "I faked it" a number of times and I quite like the song for its cheeky lyrics and her lovely voice. It's great that good Aussie talent is able to be recognised in this way.

I'm not much of a fan of modern music John, but I like your country music segment because I think a lot of the really good modern talent is in the country music field, and you have a knack for selecting some of the better ones. I think Jasmine is a really bright shining light among those people.

I've included the NineMSN article about her victory below for you, and now I'm off to bed as I have an early start. I'll be listening again at some stage during Antiques and Collectibles.

Jasmine Rae wins top country music award

22:17 AEDT Fri Mar 16 2012

She is best known for the country anthem I Faked It but there was nothing phoney about the squeals of delight as Jasmine Rae was crowned CMC Oz Artist Of The Year.

The Melbourne singer-songwriter triumphed at the CMC Music Awards on Friday night after collecting the top award from five-time consecutive winner Adam Brand.

Discovered in Tamworth in 2008, Rae has released two albums including the ARIA country chart-topped Listen Here and has toured with international stars Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson.

The 24-year-old will perform at this weekend's CMC Rocks The Hunter festival alongside leading ladies of country Faith Hill and Wynonna Judd but said telling mum was the first priority.

"I'm beside myself, my mum is going to be so proud," Rae said after collecting the CMC Oz Artist Of The Year.

"It was awesome to be nominated but this was a big surprise to beat Brandy who's been taking out everyone for five years."

Other winners on the night included Australian country music legend James Blundell who entered the CMC Hall Of Fame, and Peter McWhirter named CMC New Oz Artist of The Year.

Keith Urban won two awards after being named International Artist Of The Year and his crossover hit Without You declared Music Video Of The Year.

The CMC Music Awards are voted for by CMC viewers and held annually in The Hunter Valley, NSW, to kick-start the CMC Rocks The Hunter festival.
