Kasey Chambers ARIA Hall of Fame Speech

Kasey Chambers Delivered a Truly Iconic Speech at the ARIA Awards

Last night's ARIA awards was full of memorable moments. From Keith Urban's duet with the night's biggest winner Amy Shark, to Bob Geldof's . . . interesting surprise appearance, it was a show nothing short of entirely entertaining. But, perhaps the moment of the whole night was when Kasey Chambers was inducted into the Hall of Fame. The youngest ever female musician to take out the honour, Chambers delivered an appropriately rousing speech.

One of the most moving parts of the speech came when she thanked both of her parents for the pearls of wisdom they'd passed on to her growing up, saying "[my mum's] the most inspiring woman I know . . . over the years, she's taught me that being a bitch doesn't make you strong, and to be strong doesn't make you a bitch."

""The best advice my dad ever gave me was, 'just don't be a dickhead' — I know it doesn't sound very profound, but it's been the best advice to follow. Seriously, you don't need to be a dickhead to get ahead in this business, you really don't. You don't have to drag other people down to get to the top."

Well, personally, if that's not profound, I don't know what is. She concluded by imploring people to stay true to themselves, saying "I don't believe I'm up here because I'm a strong woman "I think I'm standing up here because I'm just myself, and that's all any of us ever need to be."

We think it's already safe to say this speech is one for the record books. Check it up in full above!
