Australasian Country Music Hands of Fame


By three years after the start of the Australasian Country Music Awards in 1973, 2TM executives could see that the Tamworth Country Music Festival was beginning to attract large numbers of tourists to Country Music Capital.

But basically the concept still existed only in the growing Festival staged each January. They recognised that Tamworth needed some tangible manifestations of country music which would help to maintain the city’s developing reputation and provide an attraction for tourists throughout the entire year.
