About Young Stars of Country: Reunion
Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey, Felicity Urquhart & Darren Coggan
20 years on after forming a tour called "Young Stars of Country" 4 of the most recognisable names in Australian entertainment have reformed for an unforgettable reunion concert to celebrate their special anniversary.
While others have come and gone, tried and failed, these four have continued to rack up the accolades and remain at the forefront of the music industry today. The awesome foursome attribute much of their individual success and longevity to bonds and friendships made with fellow performers along the way. ADAM and BECCY have paired up on many occasions, most recently releasing the highly successful album ‘Great Country Songbook Volume 2’ in 2017. Their collaborative touring has taken them on 10 national tours together, there’s no doubting their onstage chemistry and mutual mischief. DARREN and FELICITY have not only shared stages together, but also the small screen in their capacity as presenters on Channel 7’s Sydney Weekender. Their most recent collaboration ‘Inasmuch’ was the final track Darren’s stunning 2017 release ‘The Wide Horizon.’
If we rewind back to 2001, FELICITY, DARREN, BECCY And ADAM shared in a Golden Guitar win for ‘Vocal Collaboration’ with their live version of Dolly Parton’s ‘Do I Ever Cross Your Mind’ recorded at the Gympie Muster during Beccy’s mainstage performance, a version we’re sure to hear once again when this reunion hits the road.
DARREN COGGAN has spent much of 2019 touring to sell-out houses in his highly acclaimed ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ show, a mirror of the success he created with ‘Peace Train –The Cat Stevens Story’.
FELICITY URQUHART left Tamworth in January with a brand new Golden Guitar (her 8th) shared with her highly successful group Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart and in April of this year, Felicity released her 7th studio album ‘Frozen Rabbit’ before hitting the road with Brad Butcher. BECCY COLE started the year with winning her 11th Golden Guitar for Female Artist of the Year, she has packed venues on her ‘Lioness’ tour since its late 2018 release.
Adam Harvey’s 2018 release ‘The Nashville Tapes’ was received to rave reviews and has seen him playing to sell-out crowds across Australia. His extremely sad song about losing his penis ‘When Willi’s Gone,’ is an absolute (tear) jerker.
Adding to their busy schedules and no doubt their most loved productions, Adam, Felicity, Darren and Beccy have 7 children between them, most displaying musical talents of their own …perhaps the NEW YOUNG STARS OF COUNTRY!
You can expect some very special moments on this show, many laughs and even a few tears but there is no doubting that there will be some breathtaking musical moments. When four artists come together after 20 years of love and respect for each other, the crowd is in for a once in a lifetime treat.
