    Millions of country music fans will have front row seats at the Telstra Road To Tamworth finals series on January 17 and 18 plus the Fender Super Jam concert when they are screened live from Tamworth.

    James Treloar (Tamworth Mayor)
    says the festival is a celebration of the best of Australian spirit, of enjoyment and good clean fun, where visitors can chill out, tune in, sing out and go all out. "It's a family festival, and the emphasis is on fun. We go into party mode and so does everyone who comes. It's more than a hoedown, it's a giant city mardi-gras".

    Cheryl Hayes (CMAA General Manager)
    The 2005 Telstra Tamworth Country Music Festival calendar is already locked away promising a ten day schedule of live performances, showcases and concerts by the cream of Australia's country music fraternity. And what better way to start the Festival in 2005 than with the pinnacle of Australian Country Music Events - the 33rd Annual Toyota Golden Guitar Awards - country music's night of nights. The Awards, kick starting the Festival on Saturday night 15th of January, is sure to excite with a star studded list of performers including the who's who of Australian country music with Lee Kernaghan, Sara Storer, Kasey Chambers, Adam Harvey and Catherine Britt ready to entertain.

    Hon. Sandra Nori (Minister for Tourism, Sport & Recreation and Women)
    "...At the NSW Tourism Awards in Sydney earlier this month, I gave the Country Music Festival a special acknowledgement for its contribution to regional tourism. It has grown from a two-day event in 1973 to a must-see-in-a-lifetime experience for country music fans in Australia and throughout the world".
