Toe-tapping tunes ring out at premier country music event

IT was a great weekend for music lovers in Gladstone, who were treated to quality performances for two days at a big music event for our region.

Between 200-300 people enjoyed country-style tunes, which rang throughout the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre during the Elders Gladstone Country Music Festival.

The two-day festival is widely recognised as CQ's premier country music event, which was evident from the great turn-out and quality acts.

Over the two-day festival 192 performers, who were accompanied by the Elders Festival Band, took the stage in a bid to entertain the crowd and impress the seven judges.

Competitors from all age groups come from across Queensland to compete for the prize money in each event.

Cheryl Hopkins and Col Burke compered the event, which was held from 8am both days.
