Peter and Jadon announced winners of the 2013 Slim Dusty Awards

Peter Nosow and Jadon Tree were announced on Saturday night as winners of the 2013 Misty Mountain Health Retreat Slim Dusty Community Mateship & Youth Awards in Slim's hometown of Kempsey, NSW.

The announcement was made in front of a large crowd on the major night of this year's Slim Dusty Country Music Memories week.

Peter, from Landsdale in Western Australia, was nominated as an outstanding individual under all aspects of the Mateship Award criteria, according to a spokesman from Awards organisers the Slim Dusty Foundation, but especially for his wide-ranging community involvement over many years.

This involvement has includ as a church group youth leader, committee member of the Engineers Association of Australia WA branch, the Nursery Industry Association of Western Australia, the Wanneroo Rural Ratepayers Association and Landsdale Residents Association, the Perth Accordion Club and Perth Accordion Orchestra and Curtin Flying Club for the past 15 years where he has been instrumental in organising social fund-raising events for the Starlight Children's Foundation, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and Canteen.

The founder, with his wife Lyn, of Landsdale Rose Gardens, Peter is currently a member of Rose lntroducers of Australia and has been their president for the last almost four years. This small group of Australia's most successful rose growers all work together as "good mates" under Peter's leadership, pooling resources to provide an enviable display each year at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show. The group also contributes substantially to the National Rose Trial Gardens & Awards presentation event each year in Adelaide.

"As part of his business in introducing new varieties of roses to Australia each year," the spokesman said, "Peter has derived much satisfaction and pleasure assisting many charities by working together with them in introducing a 'charity' rose, thereby raising funds for them through sales of the rose. Charities including the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Beyondblue, the Depression Initiative, the Slim Dusty Foundation, The Starlight Children's Foundation, the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Silver Chain Nursing Association have been able to raise tens of thousands of dollars over the last few years."

Youth Award winner Jadon is a 17-year-old Adnyamathanha man who has worked hard against the odds to make a difference not just for his life but also for the life of others, according to Awards organisers. "He and his family moved back to Hawker in outback South Australia a few years ago and in that time he has really made a difference in that community.

"He realised that young kids didn't have much of a chance for sport in a small town like Hawker so he set up coaching clinics, which he ran in football, basketball and cricket."

Jadon was diagnosed with Glomus tumour, a rare childhood cancer, at the age of 13 and had to have radical surgery to overcome the cancer. "He took all of this in his stride and says he has to make the most of every opportunity because other kids aren’t as lucky as him.

"He is very proud of his culture and has spent a lot of his young life out with his Nanna and others learning his culture. He has shared his culture with large groups and passes on information where appropriate to younger Adnyamathanha people."

As part of his community service, Jadon has just been made a No Smoking Ambassador for the State of South Australia, a role he is undertaking as he believes it is vitally important that children don't take up smoking. He has also been involved in helping with renovation of the Pichi Richi Railway in Quorn.

Jadon is in his second year of an electrical apprenticeship which started as a school based apprenticeship when he was just 15 and completed his South Australian Certificate of Education in year 11 at 16 years of age (a year earlier than the norm). This year, he was named School Apprentice of the Year in the South Australian State Training Awards and NAIDOC Youth of the Year for the Port Augusta.

The Misty Mountain Health Retreat Slim Dusty Community Mateship & Youth Awards have been developed to recognise and acknowledge worthy people within the community who make a positive contribution to community and society and represent the integral life values that Slim Dusty lived by… "Fairness, Mateship, Family and Community along with Learning".

Country artists open their doors to our heros

With an early start to the bush fire season this year, selflessness and bravery of the men and women who run into the flames to risk their lives and fight the fires comes to the fore, and country music artists are again weighing in to support "our heroes".

A special offer has been announced in conjunction with this weekend's Total Country Weekend at the Rooty Hill RSL Club by artists involved for members of the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and NSW Fire Brigade.

Dianna Corcoran, the Adam Eckersley Band (pictured), McAlister Kemp, Aleyce Simmonds and John Williamson, in conjunction with the RSL, are providing 100 tickets to each of the shows during the weekend for "the brave men and women of our fire fighting services".

McAlister Kemp, who are performing on Friday night, have a personal reason to be thankful for their service as Drew's family home is only a few kilometres away from the fire fronts currently burning in the Blue Mountains which has already destroyed so many homes.

Anyone with an RFS or Fire Brigade ID will be given two tickets to each show they wish to attend this weekend, an offer that also "extends to anyone who has lost property in these devastating fires," according to a spokesman.

Show details are available here.

Vale– Cal Smith

American country star Cal Smith, who was best known in Australia for his hit recording of the Don Wayne song Country Bumpkin, died on Friday at his home near Branson, Missouri. He was 81.

Smith was born Calvin Grant Shofner on April 7, 1932 in Gans, Oklahoma. However, as many did in the Great Depression, his family headed west, settling in Oakland, California. He began his music career by performing at San Francisco's Remember Me Cafe in 1947.

After a stint in the military in the mid 1950s, he returned to the Bay area where he began playing in a local band. Country superstar Ernest Tubb heard the band play one night and offered Smith a job playing guitar for his Texas Troubadours.

Signing to Kapp Records in 1966, and then the Decca label in 1971, Smith had a number of hits, but none as big as the global smash Country Bumpkin. The recording won him a CMA Award for Single Record of the Year and also won the Song of the Year trophy for writer Don Wayne, as well.

He is survived by wife Darlene, five children, and fifteen grandchildren.



Bush Laureate Awards to recognise contemporary song lyric writers

Following the introduction of the highly successful category for Traditional Rhyming Verse Song Lyrics in the 2013 Australian Bush Laureate Awards, organisers have made a number of changes for 2014 including the introduction of a new award for contemporary song lyric writers.

An Awards spokesman said: "It was important to acknowledge that song lyrics are a popular and legitimate component of traditional Australian rhymed verse. The success of the new category in 2013 proved there was a strong and dynamic affinity between songwriters and poets.

"While the current Traditional Song Lyric category covers material in the bush ballad, folk and traditional country genres, we believe it is important to encourage songwriters who are creating a more contemporary style of composition."

The new Award will be known as Contemporary Australian Song Lyric of the Year and will be Awarded to the writer/s of a recorded rhyming verse song lyric in a contemporary or modern format, which best reflects Australia's unique spirit and heritage.

"It will be judged on lyrics only and must have been first released or published during the current Awards period (October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013)," the spokesman said.

In looking at Awards revisions, the organisers have decided to drop one category which, over recent years, has attracted a declining number of entries. This is the Children's Poem of the Year. Children’s poems can still be entered in the Published Poem or Single Recorded Performance categories.

The Australian Bush Laureate Awards, which started in 1995, have presented their famous Golden Gumleaf trophy to the cream of Australia's bush poets and lyric writers over the past 18 years.

They provide recognition in a number of categories, all of which are based on the commercial availability of the material: Book of the Year, Collected Verse Book of the Year, Album of the Year, Single Recorded Performance of the Year, the two lyric categories and the Judith Hosier Heritage Award (presented to an individual or organisation for outstanding achievement in nurturing Australia's unique heritage of rhymed verse).

The Australian Bush Laureate Awards, a highlight of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, are held in the famous Tamworth Town Hall. In 2014, the date will be Tuesday, January 21.

More information about the Awards can be obtained from the Awards website www.bushlaureate.com.au. Enquiries can be directed to 02 6762 2993 or email info@bushlaureate.com.au.

Nominations for the Awards are now open. Nomination form can be downloaded from the Awards website.

8 Ball bounces back

Former Queensland banana-picker (turned guitar-picker) 8 Ball Aitken is currently on his biggest-ever national tour of the Australia.

8 Ball will be launching two new albums during his tour... Southern Hemisphere, billed as "a tasty brew of sizzling hot country and blues" and, "especially for the blues fans," A Bluer Shade Of Blue, described as "a compilation of 8 Ball's best blues tracks from his previous five albums".

When not boarding planes to get from gig to gig, the now Nashville based 8 Ball has been songwriting by day and by night, has become a regular performer of country honky tonks and blues bars.

Over the past few months, he has toured and performed at festivals and music venues across the USA and Canada. Recent journeys through Texas, California, Florida, New Jersey, West Virginia, North and South Carolina resulted in him writing and recording quite a few new songs, three of which have been used this year as soundtrack music for American television shows.

"It's been a real 'Boys' Own Adventure' experience in America," 8 Ball said, "not too shabby for a banana picker from Far North Queensland."

He's appeared as an extra on the international hit TV show, "Nashville" which us now featuring his unique gig posters displayed as background art at the venue sets in the program.

Another major career highlight has been performing at Loretta Lynn's ranch where he has been asked back to play more gigs next year.

In other 8 Ball Aitken "infotainment" – a new animated music video has just been released for world-wide distribution. The Party, one of the artist's most-requested songs, has hit screens around the globe. Fully-fan funded, the animation features many well-known Australian music fans including the River Oak Cowgirls.

Inspired by the signing of the Tamworth-Nashville Sister City agreement in June, the cartoon features a musical journey between some recognisable landmarks of the two country music capitals (including Tamworth's Big Golden Guitar and Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame)
