Country crooners break all records

THE 9th annual Clermont Country Music Festival proved just as popular and more successful than previous years as country crooners from around Queensland converged on the town and took to the stage.

To a record crowd, the record number of singers made the two-day event the biggest in its history, and the introduction of the Anything Country Section, in honour of the late George Burger, attracted stiff competition.

Bronze statues were awarded to juvenile duo Koldy and Lanee-Rose Watt from Mirani, while junior crooner Damien Agius from Eton took the gong for his section.

Daniel Marolla from Ingham won the adult overall for the tribute section, sponsored by George's family.
