Bic Runga's excited about the all female line up for this year's APRA Silver Scroll Award
It's been 20 years since the singer songwriter was first up for the award.
She's up against Aldous Harding, Nadia Reid, Chelsea Jade and Lorde.
Commenting on the all-female line up, Bic Runga told Mike Hosking the music industry is just as hard for men as it is for women.
"It's really excited, it sort of shouldn't be note worthy."
The APRA Silver Scroll Awards are being held in Dunedin tonight for the first time in the event's 52-year history.
