She’s got 19 Golden Guitars to her credit but country music star Sara Storer jokes she can retire now after winning her first ARIA award.
Storer claimed Best Country Album at Wednesday night’s 30th Aria Awards after five previous nominations.
“I’ve been wanting one of these for a very long time...now I can retire,” she joked in accepting the award.
The acclaimed singer/songwriter moved from Darwin to the Border in 2014 with her husband David and their four sons Harry, 7, Thomas, 5, Billy, 3, and Jo, 18 months.
She wrote many of the songs for the award-winning album, Silos, while juggling motherhood, music gigs and life on the farm at Bowna.
Storer co-wrote Silos with her six siblings and sent out a thankyou to “my big brother Greg who is on a tractor harvesting right now”.
The other nominees in the category included: Adam Brand and the Outlaws (Adam Brand and the Outlaws), Bill Chambers (Cold Trail), Fanny Lumsden (Small Town Big Shot) and The Wolfe Brothers (This Crazy Life).
