The McClymonts, Australian sisters Brooke, Samantha and Mollie McClymont, received the CMA 2011 Global Country Artist Award yesterday (11/07/11) in Nashville at the annual CMA International Reception.
Brooke stated, “Wow, after five months of living here in Nashville, to have picked up the CMA Global Country Artist Award is an absolute honour.”
The band is reaping in great success in the United States, following their success in Australia. They have won “Best Group” at the Country Music Awards of Australia four times in the past five years. They opened for Jason Aldean in 2010 and released their CD Wrapped Up Good earlier this year.
Previous winners of this award include other Australian artists, such as Tommy Emmanuel and Canadian artists Paul Brandt and Jason McCoy.
Congratulations to The McClymonts!
