Midlands music star up for two major country awards

There was yet more good news for country star Olivia Douglas as her fantastic 2018 continues. The midlands singer and accordion virtuoso, known affectionately as ‘the flower of Ferbane’, her Offaly hometown, has been nominated for two major awards at this year’s Irish Post Country Music Awards.

Olivia is nominated in the Best Country Female and the Best Country Video (for ‘Leaving Tipperary’) categories of the awards which are due to take place in the Millennium Forum in Derry today, September 11, and which will also be broadcast live on TG4.

Olivia said: “I’m delighted and honoured to be nominated. They’re two really strong categories, with amazing artists in both. So whatever happens, I’m in good company.”

And whatever happens depends in no small part on the public, as 50% of the final votes will come from online public voting, with the other 50% coming from a select panel of industry professionals.
