COUNTRY singer-songwriter Tom Curtain is bringing the last full performance of his tour to Pickering Brook, fresh from winning two Golden Guitars in Tamworth.

His tour is the title of his album Territory Time, which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and on February 15, he released from the album a third single titled Livin’ In The Bush.

“This album is a collection of stories I have experienced first-hand or heard while working in the outback over the past decade,” he said.

“It celebrates the different way of life in the Top End. It includes stories of loss, hard work and never giving up, together with a few light-hearted fun songs.”

Curtain won the two Golden Guitars with Luke O’Shea for heritage song of the year, and video clip of the year for Never, Never Land – the first single off his album. The musician, otherwise known as the horse whisperer, will also present his Katherine Outback Experience show with stories of his travelling companions.

As part of the performance, he will perform standing on a horse, break in an unridden steed and stage tricks with his dogs.

Curtain said he was humbled to win his first two Golden Guitar awards at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

“After being away from the country music industry for the last 10 years, to come back in with two finalist placings and pick up two Golden Guitar is absolutely mind blowing,” he said.
