Troy talks of love and life
By ABBEY COWLING Work experience student
GRAFTON boy Troy Cassar-Daley is Australia's undisputed king of country music.
Troy appeared this week on the ABC network's Enough Rope program with host Andrew Denton.
In perhaps his most revealing interview with the 13 time Golden Guitar winner, Troy talked with Andrew Denton of life.
He talked of growing up in Grafton, his musical influences, his supportive family, raising children, his sad losses, his Aboriginal background, previous tours around Australia and his dreams for the future.
Troy is currently kicking off a live tour around Australia.
He is promoting his current album 'Brighter Day' and doing us proud singing with flying colours alongside Home and Away star Kate Ritchie on the singing sensation TV show 'It Takes Two'.
Troy's first visit to the Tamworth Country Music Festival left him overwhelmed, but he was back the next year, 1982, busking in the streets, just hoping to be a part of the festival.
Troy has been on the country music scene since he was 11-years-old, and he's been entertaining audiences around Australia ever since.
He is a real Aussie star.
