IF there was ever a concert for country music fans not to miss, this is definitely the one.
Performing at Ipswich Civic Centre on March 8, the I Was Here 2013 Tour will feature two of Australia’s most popular country music artists, young gun Adam Brand and veteran performer Beccy Cole, supported by rising country stars Travis Collins and Matt Cornell.
Arts, Community and Cultural Services Committee Chairperson Councillor Charlie Pisasale said Adam Brand had the highest charting Australian country album of the year in 2012 and his latest album, ‘There Will be Love’, features some of his best songs yet.
“Adam is a talented artist at the top of his game and 2013 is already shaping up to be even bigger for him,” Cr Pisasale said.
Beccy Cole recently won two Golden Guitars at the 40th Jayco Country Music Awards for best Female Artist of the Year and Vocal Collaboration of the Year.
“Beccy has now acquired an impressive nine Golden Guitar Awards and three Gold Records, 12 number one singles, two Entertainer of the Year awards and a legion of loyal fans and continues to prove she is here to stay,” Cr Pisasale said.
Powerful country performer Travis Collins is well-known for his masterful guitar playing and stellar vocals and his storytelling style of song-writing.
Up-and-coming country artist Matt Cornell is in demand as a musician and back-up vocalist and has toured the world with some of the biggest names in the music business.
“In one great show Ipswich Civic Centre will be presenting some of the biggest names in Australian country music, so get your tickets early because this show is selling fast,” Cr Pisasale said.
