Adam Harvey has been nominated for “Album Of The Year”, “Traditional Album Of The Year” and “Song Of The Year” at the 50th Golden Guitar Awards held in Tamworth in January 2022.
Adam was thrilled to receive all three nominations but said the “Song Of The Year” nomination was really special. LINDEMAN AGAIN, Adam Harvey’s fourth single from his Songs from Highway One album is a beautiful tribute to his late father – Les Harvey – who died of cancer in 2015.
Harvey says “Dad loved the Whitsunday Islands and spent the best years of his life working on a beautiful old charter boat called the Elizabeth.E, which was based in Mackay. I wanted to write this song for many years since dad’s passing, but it was still too raw and emotional. This song is very personal to me, and I knew Graeme Connors, who is based in Mackay, would be the perfect writing partner to help me capture the emotion I wanted to convey in the song. Graeme is an incredible songwriter and it was a real pleasure to tell this story with him. I have to say, of all the songs I have written, this one is my favourite.”
Adam was also excited to announce that he will be hosting the 50th Country Music Awards of Australia with one of his best mates Beccy Cole. The awards ceremony will be held in Tamworth on Wednesday 20th April.
With a career spanning over twenty years, half a million album sales, gold and platinum albums, and eight Golden Guitar awards, Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring recording artists. Harvey was presented with the CMA Global Country Artist Award in 2007 and has been awarded a Centenary Medal for his charity work. Harvey is also an Ambassador for the Fred Hollows Foundation, and the McGrath Foundation.
Harvey is currently writing a book titled “Tales from the Road”, which is a collection of stories from Adam and his country music mates chronicling some of the funny, inspiring and downright scary things that have happened on tour over the years.
Following the outstanding success of his latest album Songs From Highway One, which hit #1 on the ARIA Top 40 Country Albums and #10 on the ARIA Albums (all genres), Harvey spent the first half of 2021 performing to sell out crowds across Australia before Covid lockdown struck. Adam is really excited to be back on the road again in 2022 to complete his Highway One Tour.
