Ryan Daykin is a music award nominee

Local country singer Ryan Daykin has been nominated in the Best Male Vocal category as part of the upcoming Australian Country People Music Awards.

FINALISTS in the 2016 Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards have been announced, and among them is local country music talent Ryan Daykin.

It is the first time Daykin has been nominated for the People’s Choice Award, and he will compete against nine others for the title of Best Male Vocal for the 2015 year.

“Out of every country music act in Australia, this is very exciting, and an honour to be named in the same awards with artists such as Kasey Chambers, Beccy Cole and the McClymonts,” Ryan said.

“The nominees are chosen by the general public, who have a chance – they only get to vote once per year – to vote for their favourite artists.”

Daykin will perform at a number of venues in the lead up to the awards presentation, with seven different shows scheduled across Tamworth during the month.

“This is my first year attending the TCMF, and I currently have gigs booked which includes a few solo gigs, and a few showcase gigs with other artists,” he explained.
