Walker Honored With CMAA’s Lifetime Achievement Award

jeff walker11AristoMedia Group’s President/CEO Jeff Walker was recently honored with the Country Music Association of Australia’s inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award. The distinction recognizes the sustained promotion of Country music, as well as Walker’s 30+ years of supporting and mentoring of Australian artists, writers and industry members in North America.

CMAA president Dobe Newton presented Walker with the honor during the recent Australian Music Festival and Conference. “No one is more deserving of this first International Award determined by the CMAA Board,” said Newton.

Walker is also the recipient of this year’s CMA Jo Walker Meador International Award, which is given to someone whose efforts have had an impact in expanding Country music globally.

Walker has served on the boards of Leadership Music, NARAS, the Canadian Country Music Association, and the Nashville Film Festival (serving as President in 2004-2005). Walker is currently on the boards of the Country Music Association and the Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.
