Chad to become our ninth ‘bronzed Aussie’
The king of Australian country comedy is about to become an even more fair dinkum bronzed Aussie.
Chad Morgan OAM, the Sheik of Scrubby Creek, will make country music history with the installation of his bronze bust unveiled in Bicentennial Park, Tamworth, on Saturday, June 10 at 10.30am.
This big reveal is a first in that the guest of honour, the one and only Sheik, will be in attendance.
Up until now, only pioneers who’d entered the Pearly Gates were permitted among the impressive collection of country music mates.
And they were all friends as well as friendly rivals on the show circuit – Tex Morton, Buddy Williams, Gordon Parsons, Stan Coster, Barry Thornton, Jimmy Little, Reg Lindsay and Shirley Thoms – who along with many significant others, make up the fabric of Australian country music.
So keen to celebrate the occasion, Chad has invited some good friends along to perform on his only Tamworth show – very appropriately staged in Legends Lounge – at Wests from 7.30pm.
This free concert will allow fans to congratulate Chad in person, as well as enjoy the magic that’s made him a true legend of Australian country music over the past six decades.
Some pretty handy musical mates, many of whom have toured with him over the years, will join Chad on the Legends stage of the Phillip St, West Tamworth club.
Now in his 80s, Chad continues to command mosh pits from Airlie Beach to Gympie and enthral audiences in theatres, malls and halls across the land.
Witness history in the making at the official unveiling of Chad Morgan’s bronze bust in Tamworth, the Country Music Capital of Australia.
