In the tradition of the old-time live country show, “Grand Ole Hayride" brings you the top 3 finalists of the APRA & New Zealand Music Awards 2012.

Tami Neilson, Delaney Davidson & Marlon Williams (joined by multi-instrumentalist Dave Khan) make up this diverse line- up of some of the nation's most prestigious, award-winning alt-country artists in a collaborative performance bound to turn the country genre on its head.

“...comfortable in their craft and steeped in the traditions of storytelling and Americana. It'd take a cold, cold heart to ignore the pitch perfect performances, melodic ache and mad joy that is played out music that continues to prove it's worth in the modern music environment.”

“Alarmingly good.”

Already this year, Delaney has won the APRA Best Country Song 2012, and 2011 saw him make the final five nominees for the APRA Silver Scrolls.
