'Thanks to the fans': Felicity Urquhart on her big win
At the Australian country music’s night of nights, Felicity Urquhart took home six coveted Golden Guitar awards.
As well as her five artist awards, Urquhart also picked up a songwriters award with Luke O’Shea for Sing Me A Story which won Heritage Song of the Year.
Chairman of the Country Music Association of Australia Dan Biddle said it was a "unique situation".
“This year we have experienced a unique situation where Felicity has won awards for both her album and song as well as a song-writers award for Sing Me A Story which she co-wrote with Luke O’Shea," he said.
“This award was not included in the original announcement and while five artist awards is correct, Felicity’s overall tally from the night is six Toyota Golden Guitar Awards.”
