MFANG Awards 2015


MFANG Awards 2015

The first ever MUSIC FOR A NEW GENERATION Awards!

Planet Country present their own awards program called the ‘Music For A New Generation Awards’, colloquially known as ‘The M-Fangs’. The awards recognise modern crossover country artists for their efforts throughout the year. The awards have run annually every December since 2015.

The first year of the awards was 2015 and featured 7 categories with finalists and winners chosen by Big Stu and MJ. The awards are split into International industry and Australian industry categories. Eligibility is based on where an artist primarily tours or promotes themselves. For example, Keith Urban is placed in the International industry despite his Australian nationality.
