ARNOLD GALVANISES NU COUNTRY TV
Arnold has perfect credentials for a country singer - he's the fourth
generation of a farming family on the famed Darling Downs in Queensland.
was raised on the family sheep farm at Waitara between Chinchilla
and Tara west of Toowoomba.
So when he sings about his grandfather and other farming characters
on his debut ABC Music CD, 'Galvanize' in 2001, he's drawing from
his own heritage.
But it's the title track of second CD Scarifier that kicks off Nu
Country TV on Saturday November 8.
