AFTER an amazing year 2000, one of Australia's premier country music artists Troy Cassar-Daley is on the road again.

Cassar-Daley will play at the East Cessnock Bowling Club with country starlet Sara Storer on Friday.

Last year Cassar-Daley won six awards including Best Male Artist at the 2000 National Deadly Sounds Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Awards, otherwise known as The Deadlys, at Fox Studios, taking the honours over two legends, Jimmy Little and Archie Roach. He also won two Golden Guitars for Best Male Vocalist and Song Of The Year, with his track They Don't Make 'em Like That Any More. For the third consecutive time he took out the Country Music Association of Australia Entertainer of the Year Award and his third consecutive MO Award for Male Country Performer of The Year.

He also won an ARIA Award for Country Album of the Year for the second time for his hit album, Big River Country, named after his home town of Grafton.

Since then he has been attracting the biggest live audiences of his career and performed at Nashville's Fan Fair and the legendary Grand Ole Opry. His song, Trains, held down the number one spot on the industry's tip sheet, Music Network, Country Airplay Chart and stayed there for 24 weeks.

Cassar-Daley's heart, soul and heritage are deeply rooted in the Australian experience which is shown is his live shows and three albums.
