Speaking of Aussie success stories, a record thirteen Australian performers were recognized for their achievements in front of industry types at a special presentation that was held at Luna Park in Sydney last month. The “ARIA No. 1 Chart Awards” celebrated the achievements of Australian recording artists and the business skills of local record companies who helped get their artists to the coveted No.1 position. The group of artists this year proved to be the most varied in recent history - a tribute to the rich diversity of the Australian music landscape. We caught up with a bunch of the winners to get their reactions to their #1 successes over the past year starting with the phenomenally successful Delta Goodrem:

“I was so excited that people had connected with my music, and I was absolutely thrilled that another Australian album had reached #1!!” Delta Goodrem on the success of her #1 album, Innocent Eyes and two #1 singles “Not Me Not I” and “Predictable.”

“I was happy and also sort of relieved. Our previous album had been number 2 so I guess everyone who works with us just wanted to go that one step further. It”s not something that we ever seriously aspired to but I have to say that when it actually became a reality it was quite a satisfying achievement.“ Something For Kate’s Stephanie Ashworth on the #1 success of the Official Fiction album.

“I’ve been very fortunate to get #1 debuts for all three of my releases. At first – it’s a shell-shock. It all happened so fast, winning idols, then getting two #1s in the space of three weeks - but then it’s a gradual realization of the enormity of what has been achieved by all. I’m so proud.” Guy Sebastian on the success of his #1 album, Just As I Am, and two #1 singles “Angels Brought Me Here” and “All I Need Is You.”

“I freaked out.” Spiderbait’s Kram on their first ever #1, Black Betty.

“I sent a text message to the band saying ‘ We are the National Champions.’ I’ve always joked about comparing music to sport. I told them, now we can wear our Australian Tracksuits and stand on the podium to get our gold medal.” Pete Murray on the success of his #1 album, Feeler.

“I headed straight for the bar with a label friend - cracked a bottle of champagne.” Nic Cester’s reaction to hearing about his band Jet reaching the #1 spot with their debut album, Get Born.

“I was pretty dumb founded, kinda shocked. Very, very pleased, but it felt so surreal and hard to realize that it was happening to me. It’s such an honor and I’m very proud of the achievement." John Butler on the #1 success of the Sunrise Over Sea album.

The other artists that we’re acknowledged for their #1 successes over the past year included Kylie Minogue for her “Slow” single; the Australian Idol Final 12 for their “Rise Up” single; Shannon Noll for the album That’s What I’m Talking About and singles “What About Me” and “Learn To Fly”; Paulini for her “Angel Eyes” single and One Determined Heart,” album; Kasey Chambers for her Wayward Angel album; and Hillsong Church for their For All You’ve Done album. A huge congratulations to all.
