McClymonts Golden Guitar streak continues

Emma Pritchard Grafton’s country music sweethearts and fan favourites The McClymonts, added two more Golden Guitars to their growing collection at the 2021 Toyota Golden Guitar Awards in Tamworth on January 23, bringing their new total to 15. The beautiful sisters, Brooke, Samantha and Mollie, won Contemporary Country Album of the Year for their most recent production Mayhem to Madness which was released in June 2020, as well as Group or Duo of the Year. The talented trio also received a nomination for Album of the Year while their chart topping single “I Got This” was nominated for Single of the Year, CMT Video of the Year and Song of the Year. The sisters announced their most recent accolades on the groups official Instagram page and said winning two Golden Guitar awards was the best way to start 2021. They also shared how eager they are to return to the stage after the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of many shows and planned tours last year. The McClymonts performed their first concert in over a year in Penrith earlier this month. Despite the cancellation of the Tamworth Country Music Festival this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent restrictions imposed, the Golden Guitar Awards went ahead with fans able to live stream the event.
