There were tears as Kevin Bennett, Lyn Bowtell and Felicity Urquhart accepted their Golden Guitar Award for Vocal Collaboration of the Year…
Their song, Every Hello, featured respected artist and songwriter Karl Broadie, who passed away from cancer in 2016.
Kevin Bennett spoke about finding a demo tape of the track he and Broadie co-wrote.
“Instead of organising Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart to sing it, I asked the family if we could use Karl’s vocal instead and sing it with him,” he said.
“So we got the chance to sing with our great friend again and this is the result.”
Accepting the Award, Felicity Urquhart said that Broadie had made “a huge impression on numerous lives in this room”.
The trio performed their tribute to close friend and collaborator Karl Broadie which won them all the Golden Guitar Award for Vocal Collaboration of the Year.
The Award was Karl’s first Golden Guitar.
‘Mountain Of Pain‘ is the second Single from Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart’s 3 X 2019 Golden Guitar Award nominated Album ‘Weeds‘.
With ‘Mountain of Pain’, Bennett Bowtell & Urquhart deliver a heartfelt lament for the current direction of Trumpian America…
‘I’ve tried to pace it out,
Understand what it’s all about
How could so much light fade into grey
You can’t make something great again
Building walls and laying blame
All I see is a mountain of pain’
“Weeds is a stunning songbook,” writes Gareth Hipwell of Country Update magazine, “replete with glorious harmonies, soulful Gospel and classic country strains, with timeless instrumentation couching some of the most celebrated vocal talent in Australian song.”
