Harmony surprises Tamworth stalwarts ByCHI TRANTER in Tamworth SHEmay be the new kid on the countrymusic block but Harmony Jameswont be shy about collecting any trophy at this years CountryMusic Awards. After just three years on the countrymusic scene, James (pictured) is now up against such stars as Keith Urban, Adam Brand and Troy Cassar-Daley at the awards, to be held in Tamworth tonight as part of the annual CountryMusic Festival. It would spin (the other artists) out a bit if I won, they would say, but we only heard of her three years ago. But I wouldnt knock (the award) back, she jokes. James, who is nominated for Albumof the Year and Female Artist of the Year, admits shes takenmany people in the industry by surprise. I didnt do the talent quest circuit and people werent aware ofme until I recorded, she said. I was out bush. I was still playing andwriting, and gigging where possible. I just wasnt in the scene. Even among other country artists James stands out, looking like shewould be far more comfortable driving a tractor or rounding up cattle than fronting themedia. Dressed simply in jeans and a shirt, with only a dusting of make-up, James says her dream is to live on a farm andwrite music to perform to her fans. (I miss) being onmy own, the space and the scenery, said James, who has 11 siblings. The (country) life inspiresme but I still tend towritemore thoughts and feelings type of songs, I dont really write about cows and swags and utes. Up for seven gongs, CassarDaley leads the nominations at the 38th annual awards. Awards includeMale Artist of the Year, featuring Urban, Cassar-Daley and AdamBrand among the nominees, Single of the Year, APRASong of the Year, Heritage Song of the Year and Bush Ballad of the Year. Aunty prepares for national 24-hour news channel NEXT STEP: Kerry OBrien from ABCs 7.30 Report SYDNEY: The ABCwill go head to headwith pay TVs SkyNews, with the launch of a 24-hour news channel this year. The channel, expected to be on ABC4, will offer its free-to-air audiences continuous coverage of breaking and live news, and will featuremany ABCnews programs such as The 7.30 Report and Lateline. New programswill also be developed. The launch date will be announced in comingmonths, the ABC said in a statement this week. ABCmanaging director Mark Scott said the broadcaster had been systematically preparing for themove for years. Nomedia organisation in the country is better equipped to deliver this channel than the national broadcaster, he said. Journalist Tony Eastley said a 24-hour news channel was the next logical step for the ABC. Weve gotmore journalists inmore locations than anyone else, he said.
