Aussie trifecta on the ARIA Albums Charts

In this week's ARIA Albums Chart, two Aussie albums have returned to the Top 3 to join the reigning Australian No.1 Album, Wayward Angel, by Kasey Chambers.  This Aussie Trifecta - made up of Kasey, Pete Murray and Jet - has been rejoined by The John Butler Trio up from No.9 to No.5 this week, making 4 of the top 5 by Australian acts.

These four Aussie acts continue to appeal to Australian audiences after already holding the No.1 position this year for a total of 12 weeks collectively.

This unprecedented result will ensure that the 2004 ARIA No.1 Chart Awards will be the biggest ever - with 11 Australian Acts qualifying to receive an ARIA No.1 Chart Award for 8 singles and 8 albums.

The ARIA No.1 Chart Awards recognise Australian recording artists and their respective labels for their outstanding success on either the ARIA albums or singles charts. The award presentation is designed to raise public awareness of Australian music and recognise the business skills of Australian record companies who helped get their artists to the coveted No.1 position.

To date the Australian artists qualifying for a 2004 ARIA No.1 Chart Award include:

Delta Goodrem Innocent Eyes (A)

The ARIA No.1 Chart Awards pay tribute to the vitality, diversity and strength of local talent.  'Homegrown music' is unique, it is thriving and the ARIA charts show that Australians are continuing to proudly buy Australian music.
