National Recognition for Angus Gill

Wauchope’s Angus Gill is establishing his place as one of the top rising country music artists in Australia.

The singer/songwriter and producer took out the coveted Male Rising Star award for his single Hands are Clean at the annual Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music Awards, held in Mildura.

“I am really honoured to receive this award. I’ve been working for the last 10+ years, with all my time and energy going towards my career, because of this burning passion that I have with the music and the craft. I’m very grateful for this acknowledgement.”

Gill has recently returned from a two month songwriting trip to Nashville, hanging out with music legends Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell, Bernie Taupin (Elton John), Ray Stevens and collaborating with Music Row’s best hitmakers Bob DiPiero (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Garth Brooks), Jeffrey Steele (Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban), Terry McBride (Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire) and more.
