Face of the channel and multi CMC Award winner MORGAN EVANS, returns from Nashville where he has been writing for his upcoming US debut release, to host country music’s night of nights once again. He will be joined by a stellar line-up of country music’s finest international and local artists who will be announced in the coming weeks.


Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Kip Moore returns to Australia to perform at the Awards for the first time. Moore recently released ‘Underground’, a 5-track EP that draws inspiration from his unyielding time out on the road touring. ‘Underground’ follows the release of Moore's critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘Wild Ones’ that has been declared as "an impressively singular release from Music Row... unlike anything else in country music”. His debut album ‘Up All Night’ was certified Gold by the RIAA and spawned three #1 hit singles including Gold certified “Beer Money”, Platinum certified "Hey Pretty Girl" and the double Platinum breakout hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck”.


A constant road warrior, Moore's headlining ‘Me and My Kind Tour’ follows a characteristically relentless touring schedule, that kicked off at the beginning of the year with a sold-out tour in the US and Canada, a stint in Australia for the first time and headlining shows in The UK and Ireland that, due to demand, led to bigger venues being scheduled as well as closing out the run with a sold-out date in London, UK. Moore recently wrapped his summer stint out on the road with Miranda Lambert.


Joining Kip Moore to perform at the awards, are multi-award winning country music trio The McClymonts.  The talented sisters Brooke, Samantha and Mollie McClymont have come a long way since their 2007 debut album ‘Chaos and Bright Lights’
