Troy immortalised alongside the greats of country music



COUNTRY music star Troy Cassar-Daley has been immortalised as a wax figurine ? perpetual five o'clock shadow and all.

"It's pretty bizarre ... but it's a real thrill," Cassar-Daley, born and bred in the Clarence Valley, said at the unveiling of the figurine at the Tamworth Wax Museum.

"I'm looking forward to bringing my kids here to see this, see what they think."

The honour is awarded to Australian country music artists who have made a huge impact on the industry.

Cassar-Daley joins an elite line-up that includes Slim Dusty, John Williamson and Smoky Dawson.

He said he had to channel 'nice places' while having the cast made.

"It's the first time I've ever felt claustrophobic," he said.

He said he's looking forward to the Golden Guitar awards this Saturday, where he is nominated in seven categories including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for his intimate Brighter Day.

"Win, lose or draw you have got to be proud of what you're making, that's what it's all about and I'm very proud of the album," he said.
