The album is accredited platinum sales and continues to receive immense airplay and recognition. Great Country Songbook Volume II includes special guest recordings with Troy on two tracks.
Great Country Songbook Volume II Tour commences in May and will see Adam and Beccy performing songs all across the country from their long awaited and first full album together. The pair have handpicked the most classic country music duets of all time for volume two of this album project. Together they have brought back some of the most famous country combinations of all time; classic duets recorded by Johnny Cash and June Carter, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn and Kenny Rogers and his many duet partners…including Dolly Parton of course! In a befitting hat tip, audiences can look forward to -Jackson', -Don't Fall In Love With A Dreamer', -It Ain't Me Babe', -If I Needed You', -Anyone Who Isn't Me Tonight' and Beccy and Adam's personal favourite -You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly'.
When asked about the project, Adam Harvey said, 'I love working with Beccy Cole and we have toured many times over the years. I know Beccy loves these classic country songs as much as I do, so for me it was a natural fit to ask Beccy to record this album. Now the fun starts... I get to perform these songs on tour with my good friend who I believe is the best entertainer in the business".
Counterpart Beccy Cole was just as eager saying, 'Sharing the stage with Adam is like putting on a comfy pair of old jeans, it fits and it works! We have always had the same approach to putting on a show, the audience comes first and our job is to leave them thoroughly entertained. These songs are absolute classics; to some it will be like getting transported back to a golden era of music and our take on them has added a brand new delivery. The album was a blast to make, the live show will be fun, funny and full of surprises - that's always been Adam's and my aim".
Great Country Songbook Volume II Tour brings together two of Australia's most engaging entertainers onstage for two unforgettable hours as they bring you their versions of the greats, delivered with high energy and a few laughs in true Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole style…You won't want to miss this!
