WITH The McClymonts playing on Friday, May 18 and Beccy Cole the following night, Grafton is set for a big shindig in a couple of weeks.
Cole will showcase her seventh studio album, Songs and Pictures, at the Saraton Theatre, the night after The McClymonts play the Grafton Racecourse.
Cole's latest album is said to feature the real woman, artist and, for the first time, the exceptional songwriter that she is.
"Songs and Pictures is all the proof you'll need to see Beccy's all grown up," says her website.
While she has remained at the forefront of the country music scene for almost 20 years, performing for the prime minister, touring with international superstars and sharing the stage with the likes of The Wiggles, Kasey Chambers, John Williamson and Glen Campbell, Cole has reportedly come of age.
The talented songstress has written every song on her latest release.
The first single, Shiny Things, debuts Cole's song writing freedom with its fun, upbeat and infectious melody that instantly reminds you she is an Australian country music superstar.
Another impressive inclusion is Waitress, a song inspired by a chance encounter with a waitress in Nashville who took to the venue's karaoke stage and sang like Cole had never heard before.
Almost four years since releasing her last new album, Cole took no chances when settling on her Songs and Pictures project.
"I am so proud of this album, this is me with all cards on the table, warts and all," she said.
