Karen Lynne Inducted into Australian Country Music 'Hands Of Fame' 2008


Bluegrass, Country & Folk singer/songwriter Karen Lynne, was recently announced as one of the 2008 inductees to the Country Music Hands Of Fame' at the annual Roll of Renown Concert held in the Tamworth Town Hall during the recent Tamworth Country Music Festival. Being such an Inductee is one of the greatest honours for an Australian performer in the Country & Bluegrass Genre.

Karen was immortalised in concrete in Tamworth's Country Music Hands of Fame' at the Hands of Fame Cornerstone in Hands of Fame Park (at the corner of Brisbane Street and Kable Avenue), Tamworth, on Australia Day 2008 along with five (5) other inductees Mick Antonio, Kevin Knapp, Jim Muir and Wally Sparrow, (Warren H Williams was also inducted but was unable to be there as he had a performance committment in Queensland on Australia Day). The Country Music Hands of Fame' are co-ordinated for the City of Tamworth by the Australian Country Music Foundation.

Blue Mountains based Karen Lynne has taken great strides in her career as a singer, songwriter and musician since starting out more than 20 years ago. She has had considerable success with all 6 of her recordings and has collected many accolades and Awards along the way including a number of Golden Guitar Awards finalist placings and last year's Frank Ifield International Spur Award'.

Probably Country Music's quietest achiever, she demonstrates not only great talent but remarkable perseverance and the staying power necessary to achieve longevity in an industry so fickle. With six (6) great albums, twelve major Award wins, nearly forty major Finalist Nominations, three international tours, over ten Australian Country Music Radio Chart hits and a number of overseas chart hits, and now a place in Country Music Capital's Historic Hands of Fame' Park, she continues to demonstrate a dedication not often recognised in her field.
