TEG Live Managing Director Tim McGregor said; “We are incredibly proud to get live music back on the road again with the inaugural Country Roadshow! This new annual tour will feature the cream of Australian country music playing shows across the eastern seaboard in 2021 and hopefully across the nation in years to come. After the forced hiatus in 2020, we are confident that live music will be back on its feet next year and there's no better way to celebrate than with this stunning line-up of Australian artists.”
“I am so excited to be part of Country Roadshow and look forward to performing in front of music fans again. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone with COVID-19 changing our way of life and ability to gather and enjoy live music. Country Roadshow will be a celebration of not just great music but also our resilience as a community as we come out the other end. Can’t wait to see you all in 2021!” said Adam Brand.
