Wolfe Brothers named 2024 Galaxy of Stars Inductees

25 January 2024

Six-time Golden Guitar winning duo, The Wolfe Brothers have been announced as the 2024 Galaxy of Stars inductees today at the Toyota Country Music Festival in Tamworth, NSW, joining Australia’s country music icons.

The Galaxy of Stars was launched more than 20 years ago by Tamworth Regional Council to honour artists who’ve made a significant contribution to Australia’s music industry.

Hailing from Tasmania, the duo has delivered an incredible 19 number-one singles on the National Country Music Chart throughout their 13-year music career. With four number-one and two number-two ARIA country albums, and four ARIA nominations, The Wolfe Brothers are Australia’s most-awarded country rock duo in history.

To add to their list of achievements, the duo is also nominated for six Golden Guitar awards at this year’s awards, including Toyota Album of the Year, and Song of the Year, making them top nominees.

For the Wolfe Brothers, Tamworth and the festival has always been a huge focus of their country music experience.

“From making the journey as fans, road tripping with our late Mum and Dad to our first gig in Tamworth, to our first golden guitar and the thousands of fantastic memories we’ve made on our trips into Tamworth for the festival,” said Nick Wolfe, one half of The Wolfe Brothers.

“And now the honour of being inducted into the Galaxy of Stars is yet another incredible memory and milestone for us in this special place for Australian country music.

The last 12 years for us has been full of pinch ourselves moments and to receive this recognition is right up the top of that list.”

Manager of the Toyota Country Music Festival, Barry Harley, commended The Wolfe Brothers for the incredible impact they have had on the country music industry across their career.

The Wolfe Brothers have swiftly established their status as prominent figures within the Australian country music industry, and their induction into the Galaxy of Stars is recognition of this,” he said.

The duo follows in the footsteps of some country music greats including the iconic Slim Dusty, who was the first-ever Galaxy of Stars inductee in the year 2000. Since then, more than 30 other artists and groups have been inducted, including Troy Cassar-Daley, Lee Kernaghan, Kasey Chambers, and John Williamson.

A special ceremony took place today at the FanZone stage to announce the latest recipients, and The Wolfe Brother’s plaque will now be installed at the Galaxy of Stars display in the forecourt at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre.
