Kasey Chambers at Beef 2012 concert
AUSTRALIAN country music star, Kasey Chambers, and Rockhampton's own chart success, Busby Marou, will headline the Beef Australia 2012 Country Collaboration Concert.
The concert will be held on Friday, May 11, as part of Australia's national beef exposition, Beef Australia 2012, to be held in Rockhampton, Central Queensland, from May 7-12.
"It is a major coup for Beef Australia 2012 to have not only one of Australia's most celebrated country music artists in Kasey Chambers to perform, but to also feature rising stars and local band Busby Marou, as well as the winner of this year's Tamworth Golden Guitar for best song, Shane Nicholson," Beef Australia Chairman Geoff Murphy said.
"Beef Australia 2012 is not just about showcasing the many new innovations in the cattle industry, it is also about celebrating together as a community.
"The Country Collaboration Concert is a great way for everyone in Central Queensland to be a part of Beef Australia 2012."
Beef Australia 2012 has been developed under a theme of 'Innovation, Collaboration, Inspiration, Celebration'.
The concert will be held on the Friday evening of Beef Australia 2012 at the conclusion of five days of trade displays and cattle competitions which are at the heart of the event.
The multi-ARIA awarding winner, Ms Chambers, who last year released a new album The Storybook, will headline the show to be held at the Beef Australia 2012 Entertainment Precinct inside the Rockhampton Showgrounds.
Ms Chambers will be collaborating with renowned country artists Busby Marou, Shane Nicholson, Ashleigh Dallas and Bill Chambers, who will provide the support acts.
The concert is just part of a broader live entertainment program which will run throughout the week, and includes the Man From Snowy River Arena Spectacular.
