IT’S a great day to be Queensland country music star Caitlyn Shadbolt.

The 22-year-old singer is up for Female Artist of the Year at the eighth annual CMC Music Awards on the Gold Coast tonight, and the Gympie local will walk the red carpet with a freshly announced APRA Music Award nomination under her belt.

Shadbolt has been riding a wave of success since her first full-length album Songs on My Sleeve debuted at No.1 on the Australian country charts last year.
She told The Courier-Mail being a finalist at the CMC Music Awards – which are held at The Star and broadcast live on Foxtel’s CMC – was particularly special, as a record-breaking 521,296 country music fans had voted in the process.

“Every nomination and award comes as a surprise because you never expect it, but it’s really nice to have fans say ‘we’re still listening to your stuff and we appreciate what you’re doing’,” she said.
“And I like the company I’m in too.”

Shadbolt is up for the female artist gong alongside Kasey Chambers, Christie Lamb, Amber Lawrence and Fanny Lumsden at tonight’s event, hosted by The McClymonts.

“It (the CMC Awards) is my favourite event,” she said.

“It looks so expensive and so nice, and it’s good because sometimes Aussie country music is not pictured like that.

“A lot of the time it’s jeans and boots and mud and outback festivals.”

Her radio hit My Breakup Anthem is up for Country Work of the Year at the APRA Music Awards, which are held in Sydney in April. – #1 – All News First!
