It's Australian music's biggest event of the year and there's one songstress who has particular reason to celebrate.
Aussie country icon Kasey Chambers is set to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame at this year's ARIA Awards and in the process has broken a record as the youngest female recipient ever.
In a statement, the singer said, "I grew up learning to play music around a campfire in the outback of Australia with my family. Living in our car, hunting our own food and creating our own unique sound together that was always hundreds of miles away from any kind of audience."
"I never even dreamed that one day the music that I wrote and played would connect with so many people, let alone get me to a place where I received the phone call that I would be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame!! You could have knocked me over with a feather."

The country singer, 42, has released 12 studio albums over the course of 25 years, five of which have made it to number one.
Along with pop princesses Kylie Minogue and Olivia Newton-John, The Captain singer has the most number one albums by any Australian female artist, so it's safe to say she deserves some recognition!
"I am so proud to have been able to create the music I love in a way that has always felt so true and authentic to me and to have it reach so many people," she added in her statement.
"To be recognised by ARIA through this award is one of the greatest honours I could possibly imagine and I am so humbled to get the chance on the night to share the journey this little country singer from the Nullabor has actually had. THANK YOU!"

Just last year, Kasey returned to the music scene three years after her last big release.
Not only that, but her 11th studio album, Dragonfly, reached number one on the ARIA album chart.
During her acceptance speech at last year's award ceremony when she picked up her eighth solo Best Country Album award, Kasey showcased her trademark charm.
"My life is so weird and now I am nervous because I had to run in these shoes. My life is so weird, I was literally getting nits out of my kid's hair this morning and now I'm holding this," Kasey said.
"I know there's a lot of negative said about being a woman in this industry over 40 years old but I f---ing love it."

Speaking exclusively to The Weekly in 2017, mum-of-three Kasey revealed her unconventional style of parenting with her chuldren, Talon, 16, Arlo, 11, and seven-year-old Poet.
The songstress recounts when she picked them up from school early, took them to the beach to eat lollies and bounce around on trampolines.
"I'm sure there's people out there going, 'But what about their education?' There are a lot of days to get an education," she explains.
"I grew up in a family where life education was important and my kids are getting that, alongside school."
"I love life experience for the same reasons I love music – it makes me feel things – and I'm open now to feeling everything."
