Our Up & Coming New Nashville has had a decidedly down-under theme this month so we continue it going with a little feature on a fantastic group of musicians and beautiful sisters- The McClymonts.
An Australian country music trio of sisters, the McClymonts first arrived on the Aussie new country scene in June 2006 with their self-titled debut EP. Within the year, sisters Brooke McClymont, Samantha McClymont, and Mollie McClymont found themselves on tour with Lee Kernaghan, hitting the Australian country singles charts with "Something That My Heart Does," hitting number one with "Baby's Gone Home," being nominated for Best New Talent at the 2007 Golden Guitar Awards, and winning the same award at the Jayco Country Music Awards in 2007. 2007 also found the sisters recording their debut album, Chaos and Bright Lights, with many of Nashville's leading producers. Both the EP and the album were released through Universal. At the 2009 Country Music Awards of Australia The McClymonts have been nominated for APRA Song of the Year, Album,Group or Duo and Single of the Year. At the Australian Country Music Awards in 2009 The McClymonts won the Best Group or Duo of the year for the third time in a row. These girls are the real deal and we’re sure to be hearing more of them in the U.S. in the very near future…
