14-23 January 2022


The Golden Guitars are at the heart of it all - at the heart of the journey for both artists and fans alike. Presented by Tamworth Regional Council and the Country Music Association of Australia (CMAA), The Toyota Golden Guitar Awards are the nation’s longest running music awards concert.

This annual event gives fans the opportunity to rub shoulders with the biggest names in country music and see all of their favourite artists perform in one huge show presented in Tamworth, Country Music Capital.

As the finale to the 10-day Toyota Country Music Festival Tamworth, the event is much more than just the presentation of the coveted Golden Guitars; it's a fast-paced concert, showcasing the cream of Australian country music artists and the songs that have left their mark on the fans over the past 12 months.

While the Festival itself will not proceed in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual presentation of the Toyota Golden Guitar Awards will still go ahead, delivered via an online stream on Saturday 23 January, 2021 and supported by broadcast partner, the ABC.

The event will pay tribute to the Australian country music industry, which has faced an extremely challenging year whilst continuing to work hard and release new music under difficult circumstances. 

Stay tuned for further updates on this special event.
