Troy Cassar-Daley has come a long way from the twelve-year-old boy from Grafton busking on Peel St at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Even as he expands the boundaries of what he is capable of musically, as the diverse list of collaborators grows longer, as his swag of awards and size of his crowds has grown and grown, the innate integrity and charisma powering his music has always remained a steady true north. As he once sang, “I live the tales I tell”.
Throughout his thirty years of making music, Troy has been awarded numerous accolades including 37 Golden Guitars, 4 ARIAs, 2 APRA Country Song of the Year awards, 9 Deadlys (Australian Indigenous Artist Awards), 4 CMAA Entertainer of the Year awards plus 2 NIMAs (National Indigenous Music Awards). In 2017 Troy was honoured as the 50th inductee into the prestigious Australasian Roll Of Renown.
With numerous gold and platinum records, Troy has achieved a staggering 31 Number 1 chart singles, all of which are collected on his new compilation album Greatest Hits – along with signature album tracks and two brand new TCD originals. The forty-two songs contained within Greatest Hits have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times of Australians from the city to the outback. 2019 has seen Troy touring Australia with the Greatest Hits Acoustic Show, hitting every state and territory. A celebration of an amazing career.
“Doing an acoustic show of greatest hits mixed with stories of my life and musical journey will be very special. As an artist you can’t get a more intimate experience with an audience than this style of show. It will be a musical adventure showing you how the songs sounded the day they were born, this to me is the purest way to hear them and I can’t wait to share them with you.” TCD
In the end, as at the beginning, it all comes back to the bare essentials, one man – one compelling performer and stunning songwriter – and a guitar.

Benn Gunn’s Only in Australia album pays tribute to the supporters of home grown Aussie music, to our great country and all the true blue Aussies who make it great. It's Benn's own unique Aussie Heartland Rock.
Aussie Heartland Rock is characterized by a straightforward rock style, a concern with the average Aussie battler, and a conviction that rock music is about entertainment and a connection and purpose beyond entertainment with roots in Australian pub rock, country rock, Americana, rock and roll and folk rock.
