Meryl shows off dad's Roll Of Renown award

Meryl Davis (Beryl to her mates) is our handy little filler-in. When one of us has to be away from the store, at board meetings, album launches, leading Aussies around Nashville, or what ever, you're likely to come across her, answering phones, doing lunch, writing letters or getting orders out. Meryl was also the very successful Event Manager for Qld Champion of Champions for many years and knows just everyone in the whole Qld Country Music Club community. We also note the passing of her father, the legendary bush ballad guitarist Barry Thornton on Sunday, July 28, 2002.
