And the Golden Guitar Goes to…

O’SHEA Win Golden Guitar for Best Group or Duo at 2014 Country Music Awards of Australia
Husband & wife duo, Mark and Jay O’SHEA have secured their position as one of the fastest rising acts in Australian Country music after they took home the coveted Golden Guitar for Best Group or Duo at last night’s CMAA Awards in Tamworth.
The Nashville based couple were unable to attend the ceremony due to commitments in the US, but accepted the award via video.
“We’re so thrilled and honored to be included in such great company,” said Jay O’Shea, ” and to be able to take one home is just icing on the cake!”
The award rounds out a stellar year for the duo, after releasing their sophomore album, “One + One” in Tamworth 2013, touring nationally around Australia with Sir Cliff Richard, renewing their Foxtell TV show “O’SHEA USA” for a fourth season and becoming the new hosts of the QANTAS in-flight radio show, “Big Country”.

Cliff Richard, Charts and More…

March 3, 2013 by  



Well, the last few weeks on the Cliff Richard tour were a bit of a whirlwind! We made some great friends, played some amazing venues and even somehow managed to fit in some radio, tv and a trip to the Melbourne Zoo. Sir Cliff Richard was one of the nicest guys we’ve ever met and made us feel incredibly welcome. (and the catering was pretty bad ass as well!)O'Shea & Sir Cliff

In other news, a month after release and we’re still #4 on the Australian Country Charts behind Taylor Swift Tim McGraw and Keith Urban. (and what have they ever done really?) So a HUGE thanks to everyone who has been buying our record in Oz. It’s been really wonderful to hear everyone’s comments about which songs they like the best and how they relate to different tracks in different ways.

We’re heading back to Australia in a week to host the CMC Rocks The Hunter Television coverage and do a show at Rooty Hill RSL with our good friends McAlister Kemp.

And then…. well, I guess we’d better have a baby at some point!
