Adam Harvey has long been one of Australian country music’s premier artists. With eight Golden Guitars on the mantelpiece, 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 recognition of his immense reach, Adam was awarded the CMA’s Global Country Artist Award in 2007, and is the recipient of a Centenary Medal in recognition of his charity outreach – including Ambassadorships with the Fred Hollows Foundation and the McGrath Foundation.
In one of countless peaks in his unstoppable ascendency, Adam made history in 2009, debuting 6th studio outing Both Sides Now in the Top 20 of the ARIA General Albums Chart, and taking out the No.1 spot on the ARIA Country Albums Chart. It’s just one in an unbroken string of No.1 ARIA Country Albums releases.
Recent years have seen Adam team up with longtime mate Troy Cassar-Daley to record the Platinum-certified The Great Country Songbook (2014) – which debuted at the No.1 spot on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, and at No.2 on the General Albums Chart – before releasing Top 10 sensation Family Life (2014), rollicking good time Harvey’s Bar…The Backyard Sessions (2015), and last year’s monumental The Great Country Songbook Volume II with Beccy Cole.
Big Country attendees 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.
