The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION OF AUSTRALIA (CMAA) has presented industry vet JEFF WALKER with its first-ever LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. The award recognizes outstanding and sustained promotion of Country music and, in particular, 30+ years of support, encouragement and mentoring of AUSTRALIAN artists, writers and business practitioners in the NORTH AMERICAN marketplace.
WALKER was presented the award by CMAA Pres. DOBE NEWTON during the AUSTRALIAN MUSIC FESTIVAL AND CONFERENCE. "No one is more deserving of this first INTERNATIONAL AWARD determined by the CMAA board," said NEWTON.
WALKER, who is Pres./CEO of the NASHVILLE based ARISTOMEDIA GROUP, is also the recipient of this year’s CMA JO WALKER MEADOR INTERNATIONAL AWARD, which is given to someone whose efforts have had an impact in expanding Country music globally.
