Courtney Barnett has emerged as the biggest winner of The Age Music Victoria Awards picking up awards for Best Song, Best Album, Best Female Artist and Best Band. The award ceremony was held at 170 Russell on Wednesday.

Barnett said a few words when collecting the award for the Best Song,

“This song has two chords in it, so sucked in ... I don't have anything to say,” The "Depreston" singer said, according to a report from The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH).

She thanked her fans for their support on Twitter.

Her album “Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit” was awarded the Best Album. The album was released on March 20, 2015 to widespread critical acclaim.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the guitarist and songwriter’s grand success can be attributed to her extensive touring prior to the awards. Plus, she has a couple of successful EPs and a full-length album. Her massive appeal to voters also played a big role so much so that she beat the other Best Female Nominees Jess Ribeiro, Ella Thompson, Mojo Juju and Sui Zhen, who have all been outstanding performers.

Courtney Barnett is known for her witty lyrics and poker-faced singing style. The Australian singer-songwriter, due to performances at the CMJ Music Marathon, was mentioned as a standout performer by The New York Times and Rolling Stone.

“She is a talent we’ll be following for decades,” Rolling Stone writes.

Barnett, who is on a roll for the past 12 months, is now looking forward to the ARIA Awards Connected by Telstra on Thursday, Nov. 26. She has been nominated for a record eight categories.

The Age Music Victoria Awards is in its tenth year. The award night saw performances by Courtney Barnett herself, Marlon Williams, Harts, Ben Salter, Briggs and more. Other notable winners include Emma Donovan & The Putbacks who was awarded Best Soul, Funk, R’n’B and Gospel. Donovan also won the Best Indigenous Act category.

Meanwhile, Raised by Eagles took the Best Emerging Artist and Best Country Album awards. The Best Male Artist award was given to blues ‘n roots man C.W. Stoneking and the Best Live Band award to local favourites Smith Street Band. The Age Music Victoria Awards is the largest publicly voted music awards in Australia.
