After a two-year hiatus, Jindabyne born and bred country star Brad Cox is on the road and he’s bringing his band home to the Snowy Mountains in May.
This is Brad’s first full headline tour since the COVID-19 lockdowns, and the first since the release of his ARIA and Golden Guitar-nominated sophomore record My Mind’s Projection in November 2020.
Brad will be touring in support of his brand new single What Brought You Back? which he describes as “a classic breakup song, written in an afternoon in Nashville with the homies Phil Barton and Dave Thompson”.
He’ll be playing at The Station in Jindabyne on 22 May, Kambri at ANU in Canberra on 12 May and Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre on 6 May.
The 2018 Star Maker winner, Brad has made a name for himself in the Australian country music scene, selling out shows nation-wide and becoming a regular at country music festivals. But he always looks forward to heading back to Jindabyne.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to my old stomping grounds and catching up with the crew,” he said.
He earned wide-scale recognition in 2018 with his self-titled debut album that yielded the singles Red Light, Too Drunk to Drive and Lake House, as well as the anthemic crowd favourite Water On The Ground, which has racked up more than 580,000 Facebook views.
The album earned the Jindy native two Golden Guitar nominations for Contemporary Album of the Year and New Talent of the Year. In 2020, Brad earned two further Golden Guitar nominations for his single Rusty Strings.
Described as a snapshot of Brad’s life over the past three years, My Mind’s Projection has been Brad’s most successful to date, debuting at number one on the ARIA Australian Country Album Charts and number 12 on the ARIA Album Chart.
Featuring the hit singles Give Me Tonight, Drinking Season and Short Lived Love, the album was nominated for the ARIA Award for Best Country Album and the Golden Guitars Contemporary Country Album of the Year.
In 2021 Apple Music handpicked Brad to host his very own Apple Radio show, Happy Hour Down Under with Brad Cox.
Known for knocking back a few beers with his mates, Brad has created the Brad Cox Drinking Pioneers club, which offers his supporters access to discounted merch including clothing, trucker caps and stubby holders, as well as tour news and opportunities to meet and greet the star.
Tickets for his national tour are on sale now.
