The Gambler and Coward Of The County. CLICK HERE for our Kenny tribute in The Diary.

Monkey's Eyebrow - as an international launch pad.

Waldon has released her album here on April tourist John Prine's
Oh Boy label through Cooking Vinyl . CLICK HERE for our Kelsey Waldon feature in The Diary.
BRENDAN MCMAHON – FROM FERNY CREEK TO HAVANA
When Ferny Creek singer-songwriter Brendan McMahon visited Havana he was so impressed by the late Ernest Hemingway's shrine in historic
Ambos Mundos he wrote Hotel Hemingway.
But a frightened echidna that he freed from a Rowville paddock in Melbourne 's eastern suburbs inspired his fourth album's entrée song
Lost My Way.
The son of a former stock and station agent at Kapunda near the Barossa Valley also paid tribute to a steer named Morris in the same paddock on his previous disc that preceded fourth album
In The Moment , released in November. CLICK HERE for our McMahon interview in The Diary.
OLD DOMINION LEAN BACK TO JACK KEROUAC

But it's likely to follow

RAY WYLIE HUBBARD SUPS ON WHISKEY – MYERS LABEL
Whiskey Myers proves why it topped country charts on debut on September 27 with its fifth album in a 12-year career that began in Palestine.
The band mixes Biblical fervour with a fierce outlaw spirit akin to mentors Hank Williams Jr and the late Waylon Jennings.
So it's no surprise that Pentecostal primed entrée single
Die Rockin' was penned by singer Cody Cannon and veteran Texan outlaw Ray Wylie Hubbard.
Hubbard, 73 and one of the pioneers of outlaw country in the Lone Star state, is still recording and performing with little mates Shotgun Willie Nelson, 86, and recent octogenarian Billy Joe Shaver.

Sun, born James Paulsen, in Rochester , Wisconsin, died on October 25 at 76 of natural causes in Palm Bay, Florida.

NICK RIEWOLDT FOOTBALL LESSONS FOR TIM MCGRAW
Former St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt gave singing superstar actor Tim McGraw and his capacity concert crowd football kicking lessons at
Rod Laver Arena on Sunday night.
Country music devotee St Nick, just 36, kicked four new
Sherrin footballs high into the bleachers as Tim introduced one of his many hits - I Like It I Love It .
McGraw, 52, reciprocated by emulating his guest with a left foot torpedo and a gridiron throw of another football.
Tim, son of late baseball star Tug McGraw, offered to sing at the AFL grand final in a
Nu Country TV interview in April after seeing Nick play against Collingwood in a preliminary final on a previous tour.
The pilot and singing spouse of fellow star Faith Hill wore a Collingwood jumper at that game.
Nick's kicking lessons were his salient sequel.

MICHAEL WAUGH RETURNS TO THE WEIR
Gippsland dairy farmer's son Michael Waugh proves he is well qualified to write and sing about extremities of drought and flood that have haunted agrarians for centuries.
The latter-day Scotch College secondary teacher and house master grew up near Glenmaggie Dam and Maffra in the Latrobe Valley .
But the fitness fanatic grandfather also found song sources for his third album
The Weir while heading west on his push bike and catching Countdown icon Molly Meldrum taking in his garbage bins at his Luxor mansion in Richmond.
Waugh, 48, wrote all 13 songs on his acclaimed album produced by Queensland refugee Shane Nicholson.

GEORGE DUCAS YELLOW ROSE MOTEL 2020 TOUR?
When Texas City born hit-writer George Ducas needed a source for his double murder crime of passion title track for fourth album
Yellow Rose Motel he didn't have to look far.
He resurrected fellow Texan singing actor Willie Nelson's famed
Red Headed Stranger album and movie as his inspiration.
At just 48 Ducas is almost four decades younger than Willie, now 86, but their traditional country music theme song sources are a common denominator.
Ducas is keen to promote his album on a tour in 2020 - hopefully launched at the 13th
CMC Rocks Queensland Festival in March. CLICK HERE for our exclusive Ducas interview in The Diary.
RUNAWAY JUNE BLUE ROSES
Runaway June had good reason to bare their hearts on the pathos primed title track finale of their debut album Blue Roses.
The song was inspired by the tragic death of lead singer-guitarist Naomi Cooke's brother Billy Dukes.
Runaway June , featuring late western movie star actor John The Duke Wayne's grand-daughter Jennifer, is touring with Oklahoma oriole Carrie Underwood and Maddie & Tae. CLICK HERE for our Runaway June CD feature in the Diary.
SINGING SHEARER LUKE DICKENS CLICKS SONGS
When singer-songwriter-shearer Luke Dickens wrote nine songs for self-funded second album
After The Rain he discovered his music was creative therapy.
That was after exploring evil outback serial killers, cyber bullies, snakes and wolves.
But the 2011
Star Maker winner balanced his musical diet with love songs for his son Jordan , now 10, and fiancé Sammie whom he plans to marry in October.
“It was therapeutic,” Dickens, 37, told
Nu Country TV of the album produced by Sam Hawksley. CLICK HERE for our Dickens interview in The Diary.
WILLIE HIGH IN THE SADDLE AT 86
Shotgun Willie Nelson proved in his video for his 69 th album title track
Ride Me Back Home he stills ride high in the saddle with no need to dismount.
Willie, a ripe young 86-year-old, chose that song - one of the few he didn't write on his album - as the title.
The song's equine freedom message - equally relevant here with threats to high country Brumbies - echoes human liberation Willie has extolled since leaving Texas hometown Abbott as a teenager.
Willie loves horses and humans - including pianist sister Bobbie, now 88, with equal passion.
Ride Me Back Home was co-written by Sonny Throckmorton after hearing of Willie adopting horses that he stables at his Texas Hill Country ranch. CLICK HERE for our new Willie CD feature in the Diary.
LUKAS TURNS ON - AND OFF THE NEWS
When Lukas Nelson and his long-time band
Promise Of The Real returned here for their April tour they drove home the message of their fifth album title track with dynamic live delivery - especially at the historic Corner Hotel in Richmond .
It may have been a much smaller venue than those played by Lukas's singing sire Willie, now 86, on his tours.
But the aura of singing actor Willie swirled around the venue as Lukas proved why he followed his sire into movies with major roles writing songs on the soundtrack and performing in the Bradley Cooper-Lady Gaga remake of
A Star Is Born.
Lukas's message was and clear - ignore the endless news cycle with its staple diet of war, famine, car jackings, drive-by shootings, murder and mayhem that maul the mean streets of Melbourne and, of course, the Middle East and way beyond.
CLICK HERE for our Lukas Nelson CD feature in The Diary.
BROTHERS OSBORNE PRAISE WILLIE NELSON
Brothers Osborne share more than their penchant for the herb superb with their Octogenarian mentor - singing actor Willie Nelson.

They showcased their Red Headed Stranger eulogy -
Weed, Whiskey & Willie - live on Late Night With Seth Meyers on U.S. TV and the Grand Ole Opry .
The song, accompanied by a video to be screened on
Nu Country TV in August, is on their second album Port Saint Joe. CLICK HERE for a Brothers Osborne CD feature in The Diary.
AARON WATSON SALUTES HEROES
When Texan troubadour Aaron Watson wrote 20 new songs for his 14th album
Red Bandana he didn't have to look far to pay homage to his heroes.
Watson, now 41, opened with
The Ghost Of Guy Clark and included eulogies to the late Red Steagall on Riding With Red and a vast cast of mentors in Legends .
Clark, a revered singer-songwriter, attracted celebrity studded audiences on his Australian tours, before he died of lymphatic cancer at 74 on May 17, 2016.
