Shining stars setting Boyup Brook festival alight

Tari JeffersManjimup-Bridgetown Times

The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival has cemented itself as a premier country music event and one of its strengths is its diverse line-up and headlining acts.

The Country Music Club of Boyup Brook is pleased to welcome back The McClymonts to the 33rd festival.

With 20 hit singles, two gold-certified albums, 10 Golden Guitars – including five for group or duo of the year – and two ARIAs for Best Country Album to their credit – The McClymonts are highly anticipated for the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival.

Other accolades include a US Country Music Association Award for Global Artist of the Year and their three most recent releases each soared to the number 1 spot on the Australian Country Album Charts and broke into Top 10 spots on the ARIA All-genre Albums Charts.
