The CMAA is honoured to partner with Tamworth Regional Council and the ABC for this special edition of The Winners which catalogues the amazing contribution our writers and artists have made to our nation's music over the decades. The stories told and the voices that tell them are a wonderful reflection of our identity and culture and will be celebrated by fans across the nation and the world."

“2022 is a big year. Not only for the festival itself, but for its pinnacle event, the Golden Guitar Awards,” says Toyota Country Music Festival Manager, Barry Harley. 

“This limited-edition CD showcases and celebrates the cream of Australian country music from over the five decades and I couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate the 50-year milestone.”
