Bob Howe and Anne Kirkpatrick

Announced today, the latest inductee onto the Australasian Roll of Renown – an accolade regarded as the pinnacle of recognition for the Australian Country Music Industry…ANNE KIRKPATRICK.

“A true child of country music, Anne first came to prominence when she introduced an exciting new contemporary sound to the Australian scene in the late 1970s. Initially recording her first solo album in 1974, she won her first Golden Guitar in 1979 for Female Vocal.

Over her long and highly acclaimed career she has won five more Golden Guitars including two for Album and Female Vocal and an ARIA Award for her watershed album “Out Of The Blue” in 1991.

A talented songwriter with a unique vocal style, Anne achieved great success as a recording artist and performer – both as an individual and in concert with her parents Slim Dusty and Joy McKean and her family.

For over four decades Anne’s ability to blend a contemporary style with traditional themes has influenced the way many Australians think about modern country music and her early success helped prepare the way for the many young artists who followed in her footsteps.”
