Beccy to share her milestones
STILL out celebrating after clocking up a successful 20-year career in country music and turning the big 4-0 herself, Beccy Cole is on the road again and heading to the Clarence this weekend.
To acknowledge these milestones the multiple award winner released Beccy's Big Hits! last year, a greatest hits CD, featuring 14 of her most popular tracks which make up the mother of all mixed tapes and described by Beccy as "A country music version of a box of Cadbury favourites".
From the heartfelt Australian hit Poster Girl, the award-winning duet with Kasey Chambers about a lifelong friendship, Millionaires, to the side-splitting live version of Beccy's divorce song Lazy Bones, this album is sure to delight Beccy fans old and new.
Beccy Cole is the real deal; a working single mother, a successful career woman, an explosive and very funny live performer and is as honest in the lyrics of her songs as she is about her private life. This honesty led to Beccy's revelation on a ratings winning episode of ABC-TV's Australian Story that she is gay... after "keeping it under her hat" for 15 years. Beccy received unprecedented and overwhelming support and encouragement from fans. This has led to the beaming and infectious smile that Beccy's 30,000+ social media subscribers have enjoyed passing comment on of late.
This weekend, Beccy Cole will take her Clarence audience on a journey through the trials and triumphs of a woman living the dreams of a little girl. She extends her generosity from the truthful and sometimes very funny lyrics, to the stories behind the songs.
"Now that the cat is out of the bag, I can not only be myself, but reveal the true meaning of some of the songs... and you just have to laugh at yourself sometimes."
In two decades, the sassy Country Queen has shelved 9 Golden Guitars, 3 Gold records, 2 Entertainer of The Year awards, 7 songwriting awards and has peaked at Number One on the country music radio chart a whopping 14 times. She has dedicated her life to touring her own country with an occasional break for entertaining Aussie troops in danger zones worldwide.
Joining Beccy for these exclusive shows is the incomparable Libby O'Donovan as opening act and special guest. This show will feature a special glimpse of the upcoming theatre sensation, The Cowgirl and The Showgirl featuring singer/songwriter Libby. Since joining Beccy at Tamworth last year, Libby has become a part of the tour as Beccy's opening act, however the audience will have the first opportunity to get a sneak peek of this show.
