After over a decade of fronting the band Wagons, Melbourne singer/songwriter Henry Wagon's embarked on a new journey, releasing his very first solo album "After What I Did Last Night". This debut release earned Henry a nomination for Best Independent Country Album at this year's AIR Awards.

Having been successful in the industry for some time, Henry is no stranger to an Awards night. With this in mind, we picked his brains and asked him to give us his top tips for surviving the night.


What are the top 3 things you need to survive an awards night and why?
A shiny suit.
A full glass.
A smiley face.
I will have all of the above in constant supply. 

If you’re performing, what’s your No.1 tip to avoid stage fright when performing in front of industry folks?
Dutch courage. 

How do you work the red carpet? Share one tip for getting the best pose (or selfie).
I work the red carpet by letting the stain remover sit for a few minutes to let it sink in, then vacuum it off.  
The best way to get a good pic is to take a lot of photos. Personally, I need thousands.
