Invercargill singer Cheryl Anderson enjoyed further success at the 42nd Tamworth Country Music Festival in New South Wales last night.
The 2013 New Zealand Gold Guitar senior overall winner won the trophy for best senior female vocalist at the Capital Country Music Association's Jamboree show in the Tamworth Town Hall.
Her original song Me And The Duke also took out the new prize for best alternative country song.
Young Aucklander Khona Va'aga-Gray won the overall award.
On Monday Anderson was runner-up in the Aristocrat Entertainer of the Year competition.
Gore singer and New Zealand's Got Talent third place-getter Jenny Mitchell was also a finalist in the junior female solo vocal section last night.
Today, Anderson will sing in a New Zealand showcase concert along with fellow Southlanders junior Gold Guitar winner Beth Walker, Bonnie Turner and Jenny Mitchell.
They will be joined on stage by other country singers from the large Kiwi contingent who have made the pilgrimage to Tamworth.
Anderson also came second in the Aristocrat Entertainer of the Year competition in Tamworth.
That contest was won by Australian singer Nathaniel O'Brien.
Meanwhile, Beth Walker didn't make it through to the finals of any of the competitions she was entered, but received good comments from the judges.
