WASHINGTON and AC/DC win prestigious APRA Awards
Posted on 22 Jun 2011
Last night in Sydney, APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) Board of Directors announced MEGAN WASHINGTON and AC/DC winners of the prestigious peer voted 2011 APRA Music Awards. The awards celebrate composers and songwriters across 12 categories that have achieved excellence in their craft over the last year.
MEGAN WASHINGTON was awarded Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year for her songwriting achievements for debut album I Believe You Liar. With her album crammed with heavenly pop hits, and wordy, twisty, clever pop lyrics that have garnered her high praise from songwriters of the calibre of Paul Kelly and Tim Finn, this original troubadour is destined to have a long and illustrious career.
AC / DC won the APRA Award for Most Played Australian Work Overseas for the rock n’ roll classic Highway to Hell written by BON SCOTT and the 2010 APRA Songwriters of the Year ANGUS AND MALCOLM YOUNG. The song was released way back in 1979, but like a fine wine, keeps on keeping on.
