Kirsty Lee Akers
Fresh from her second Golden Guitar win at the 2021 awards, one of Australia’s most talented and authentic artists is coming back to Tamworth. Kirsty Lee Akers will be performing at her 31st Tamworth Country Music Festival. From the time she could walk, her family made the pilgrimage to the Country Music Capital in January, so you could say it’s in her blood. The only artist in history to win a Golden Guitar, Toyota Star Maker, and The Telstra Road to Tamworth, Akers has carved out a unique path in music. After playing big stages in Nashville (Americana Fest, Music City Roots, CMA Fest), Canada (Calgary Stampede, Big Valley Jamboree), and the UK (Buckle and Boots) over the last few years, the only way is up for this pint-sized powerhouse.
Kirsty is thrilled to announce her special guest for the show, South Australian starlet Abbie Ferris. Ferris has been making waves since her debut single hit charts in 2017. She brings an infectiously catchy sound, and fresh, girl next door personality to get the party started.
While COVID-19 certainly challenged us all, Kirsty managed to write and record new music with some of the world’s best, while also taking a leap into the TV arena.
Hear all the hits and feel the energy, live at the 2022 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
