Coming to The Oaks in March2019 is Australian country music’s premier artist, Adam Harvey, with special guest Judah Kelly.
For celebrated entertainer and country music purist Adam, one musical era stands out head,hat and shoulders above all the rest: Nashville’s seminal 1970s Golden Age.Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Adam jetted off to the bright lights of the immortal Music City to record masterful 10th studio album The Nashville Tapes, armed with a brace of new songs couched in the classic country sounds that most capture his imagination.
Perhaps more than any of Adam’s stellar solo releases to date, The Nashville Tapes is a sweeping, personal celebration of the sounds that defined a generation: from the legendary outlaws to the first wave of global country megastars.
With eight Golden Guitars under his belt, Adam ranks among Australian country music’s most decorated artists. Add to that more than half a million album sales, back-to-back No.1 albums on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, three ARIA nominations, and a succession of Gold- and- Platinum-certified albums, and it’s easy to see that Adam’s trophy room sparkles from every angle.
In making The Nashville Tapes, Adam decamped to Nashville, Tennessee,where he and another longtime mate, producer Nash Chambers, assembled a crack team of Music City’s finest and most sought-after session players to assist in realising the album.
The Nashville Tapes is yet another career-best album for Adam Harvey. A deeply personal, powerfully reverent release not years but decades in the making, The Nashville Tapes is the master work of an all-time Australian country music legend.
Adam and band are poised to take The Nashville Tapes on the road in the coming months, with support from The Voice Australia 2017 winner – and Adam’s own newly minted lead guitarist – Judah Kelly. Concertgoers can expect everything Australia has come to love about Adam Harvey’s incomparable live show: a rousing mix of new songs,established hits and live favourites, and a smattering of evergreen country classics – along with liberal doses of Adam’s trademark yarns, droll one-liners, and generous good humour. As Adam puts it, simply, the tour is set to showcase:
“The new band, the usual funny stories making people laugh, and a celebration of country music.”
