|Triple header show to tour all mainland states
by Ali Webb
Charley Crockett, our favourite Texan cowboy, is back for an Australian summer, dustin’ off his boots for a wild tour covering the country from east to west with his smouldering ballads and razor-sharp songs.
From Texas to Tamworth, the award-winning country and western superstar returns to Australia with his band, The Blue Drifters, after his sold out shows here in early 2023.
Oozing Americana and drenched in timeless classic tales, Charley Crockett’s neo-traditional country swagger lasso’s the listener into dreamlike nostalgic westerns of wandering, whiskey, and the wild, wild west.
His latest album is one of the best live albums to be released in 2023.
Recorded Live From The Ryman, the LP radiates Crockett’s energy at the historic Nashville venue capturing the dreamlike vibes and raw talent of one of the most exciting contemporary cowboys of today.
Joining Charley and The Blue Drifters on the road will be highly celebrated Indigenous soul queen, Emma Donovan, performing new music from her first solo album which captures the heart of nostalgic Australian country gospel.
Alt-country troubadours, Sweet Talk, will bring their vintage swagger to Newcastle, Brisbane, Sydney, Ballarat and Korumburra.
Local authorities are still getting calls to put out fires from the last time Charley Crockett and his band were here.
Imagine the fear for a summer tour.
Love Police and Frontier Touring suggest you get prepared for a sizzling season of Charley.
