This is a great line up of artists and songwriters who won these awards. I must say I was dissapointed that very feww attended the award presentation. If I can travel from Sydney why can't these others? Anyway, it was great to see some of the winners like Alan Caswell, Brothers 3, the Fry Brothers there.
