Our guest today is Adam Harvey.
Adam Harvey is an Australian country artist that started musically learning country classics on the guitar as a small boy. His first gig came at the age of ten, and by his school years, he was performing rock covers at a club when he was discovered and went off on tour as support for Tania Kernaghan.
In 1998, a collaboration with Tanya Self led to a Golden Guitar Award for Best Vocal Collaboration and — not surprisingly — a record deal. A trip to the Grand Ole Opry to perform came shortly thereafter.
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.
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) has been inspired by his years touring around the beautiful country he calls home.
