Bush music milestone
CLARENCE Valley councillors have become the latest fans to lead a round of applause for two of the Clarence Valley's musical success stories.
The ovation has come for Troy Cassar-Daley and Samantha McClymont, who have both been nominated for Golden Guitar awards at this month's Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Clarence Valley councillor Richie Williamson described the two home-grown country music stars as outstanding ambassadors for the Clarence Valley.
"Just about every time I hear them interviewed they say how great the valley is," Cr Williamson said.
"They are both great ambassadors for the communities where they grew up and we all wish them well in the gala awards night on January 28," he said.
Mayor Ian Tiley endorsed Cr Williamson's comments by saying the entire Clarence Valley could be proud of Troy and Samantha.
"There are so many success stories involving fields like the arts, music and sport across the valley," Cr Tiley said.
"Samantha and Troy are two outstanding performers and deserve the success that has come their way.
"We wish them all the best at Tamworth and long into the future."
