Winning Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards in both 2021 and 2020, it’s hard to believe Benny Allen "Never Knew I Was Country".
"The Battle of Point Nepean" took out the Best Bush Ballad category in 2021, going back to back with his 2020 Best Video award, for Never Knew I Was Country.
These awards are sitting nicely on Benny’s shelf, next to two ICMA (Indie Country Music Australia) Awards from 2020 - presented off the back of his debut album Never Knew I was Country, which made it to No. 7 on the iTunes Country Chart.
Benny finished off the 2020 year with the uptempo, Bluegrass inspired Lady Luck & Me - which spent over 3 months in The Music Network’s commercial radio play Hot 50 Country Songs. Debuting at No. 2 on the iTunes Country chart, this contemporary bluegrass banger gained immediate attention for its uptempo joyousness, and accompanying animated music video.
There are big plans for more releases in the 2021 calendar, as Benny Allen continues to strive to make great music.
