International multiplatinum singer-songwriter Kip Moore and Australian country group The McClymonts will perform at next year’s CMC Awards.
The 7th Annual CMC Music Awards give fans the opportunity to vote for their favourite Australian and international country artists. Next year the awards will take place for the first time at The Star Gold Coast (currently Jupiters Gold Coast and transitioning to The Star Gold Coast early 2017) on Thursday March 23, and will be broadcast live on CMC.
For the third consecutive year, five-time CMC Music Award winner and face of the channel Morgan Evans will host the awards night.
Moore recently released ‘Underground’, a five-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.
Joining Kip Moore to perform at the awards are multi-award winning country music trio The McClymonts. Talented sisters Brooke, Samantha and Mollie McClymont have come a long way since their 2007 debut album ‘Chaos and Bright Lights’.
CMC Rocks QLD 2017 will be held over three days and nights from Friday March 24, Saturday March 25 and Sunday March 26, 2017 at Willowbank near Ipswich and will telecast on CMC in April.
