Top End Songwriter hits the Grayte open road to Tamworth!
Award-winning artist Melanie Gray returns to Tamworth Country Music Festival January 2020. After graduating from the CMAA (Country Music Association of Australia) ‘Academy of Country Music’, Gray is headed south of her Darwin hometown, to wow audiences with her first official line up of shows.
“It’s my first year appearing in the official guide which is super exciting. Considering this is one of the biggest music festivals in the southern hemisphere I’m so stoked to be down there representing my beloved NT and singing the songs I have written about our beautiful country. This is something I’ve been trying my hand at for years so to come to Tamworth with now 11 gigs feels like a massive win for me!” – M.Gray
Gray’s line up will see her appearing at some of the festival’s most happening and popular spots, including the Imperial Brewhouse, the Toyota Fanzone Stage, and an all-female country showcase: Sheilas! Renegade Women of Country. Melanie Gray is on way to becoming a household name as she is sought after to host a line-up of popular acts including Starmaker finalist Jarred Taylor and country icon Chad Morgan at the Tamworth Shopping World stage.
The star of her line up is set to be her appearance at one of the biggest sell-out shows of the festival “The Carter & Carter Country Gospel Concert”.
