We're heading to Gore, where the Gold Guitar Awards are in full swing as part of the Tussock country festival.

It's one of New Zealand's most prestigious country music events, drawing contestants from around the world to converge on the Southland town to celebrate country music and compete for a chance at the top prize.

We'll talk to RNZ's Samuel Robinson who's in town, soaking up the music, learning how to line dance and make cheese rolls.  Plus we'll catch up with Kiwi country singing legend Jodi Vaughan who is being inducted into the hands of fame.
