Hawley: 'I'll Never Be A Bighead'

British singer/songwriter RICHARD HAWLEY is banned from becoming a "big-head" no matter how many awards he wins, thanks to his down-to-earth wife. Hawley, who has been nominated for this year's Mercury Music Prize, also beat KATE BUSH and GORILLAZ to the UK's South Bank Show Music Award this year (06). But although he loves the attention, he has his feet firmly on the ground. He says, "Awards are great, really fantastic. I just hope I'm not to turn into a big-head. Not that my wife would ever let that happen. "The funniest time was when I was made Arena magazine's Man Of The Year. She kept leaving messages on my phone going, 'Now then, Man o' Year. Get off your a**se and pick kids up from school.'"
