Australia’s country music industry celebrated its pinnacle night in Tamworth with the 2015 Australian Country Music Awards. A lifelong dream came true for Pisgah Ridge recording artist, Kristy Cox when her song “One Heartbreak Away” was honored with the Bluegrass Recording of the YearGolden Guitar. The song appears on Kristy’s album, LIVING FOR THE MOMENT.
“I’m still not sure that this is all real,” Kristy says. “Since I was a child, I have wanted to have one of these [Golden Guitar Awards] on my bedside table! To be acknowledged with the first ever Bluegrass Golden Guitar [in this category] and have it presented by my longtime friend and producer, Jerry Salley, just made it that bit more special. We have made history! I can’t thank the industry here at home enough for their ongoing support, and my label Pisgah Ridge for believing in me and making this album with us” – Kristy Cox
Kristy was also asked to present two awards at the program and perform with a stellar lineup of Australia’s best in the program finale.
