Award-winning country music singer Beccy Cole is making her long-awaited return to Port Augusta, performing at West Augusta Football Club on Thursday, October 4.
On the back of releasing her new album ‘Lioness’ at the end of August, the four-time Country Music Awards of Australia Female Artist of the Year commenced a nationwide tour.
Beccy said she is excited to finally return to Port Augusta.
“It’s been a long time since I’ve been in Port Augusta. I’m really looking forward to it,” she said.
“People have been asking me for years to come to Port Augusta, so they’re all the people that I really want to see at the show.”
Lioness – the country music veteran’s 12th album – shot to fifth on the ARIA Country Albums Chart in its first week.
The 100 per cent female-produced album touches on serious subjects, including relationships and family, but features plenty of the humour that Beccy’s fans have come to know and love.
Beccy expressed her pride in releasing an album completely written, produced and recorded in South Australia.
“(The recording process) is something I always used to do in the eastern states,” she said.
“But everything is here at our fingertips in South Australia, so it’s really good to be able to use the resources closer to home.”
Two Port Augusta natives, Jake Nickolai and Kelly Brouhaha, are both set to feature in the show, playing key roles in Beccy’s band.
Beccy said she is looking forward to a fun night in Port Augusta filled with plenty of laughter.
“The shows generally work out to be half the new stuff and half the stuff people request and like to come along to see,” she said.
“I think people like to hear good music, but they also like to have a laugh. Comedy is a big part of my show and mainly I take the mickey out of myself.
“If you buy a ticket to a show, you want to forget about your worries for a couple of hours, so that’s what I like to think we provide.”
