Real Country Heads to Tamworth

Fri, 10 January 2014


Ben Sorenson2013 was a big year for Ben Sorensen’s REAL Country. With huge radio specials from the CMA Festival in the USA, to big name interviews with Darius Rucker, Kellie Pickler, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and more… Now Ben kick starts 2014 in an even bigger way at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
REAL Country, broadcast on over 100 radio stations and is a #1 podcast, will be making the annual trek to the Tamworth Country Music Festival for its 6th year. As always their main focus is recording content for their popular Ben Sorensen’s REAL Country Tamworth specials and experiencing some of the best country music Australia has to offer!
“The Tamworth shows are always a hit.” Ben says “We get so many comments from both our Australian and international listeners who look forward to the specials, and to the discovery of new talent from the festival”.
Host Ben Sorensen has a jam-packed festival as official MC (and sponsor) for many premier events including the NRMA BusinessWise Country Music Cocktails, Leukaemia Foundation’s Walk Of Life and he will guest MC album launches for many great Australian country music acts including Georgia Fall and Kristy Cox. 
“I just love the opportunity to get out and do live events and radio specials. The stories, the music and the people you meet just re-ignite my passion for Country Music and how lucky we are to be Australian.”
For the first year limited edition REAL Country stickers and merchandise will be available from On-Site Retail outlets (West Tamworth League Club, Wests’ Diggers and TRECC – Tamworth Regional Entertainment Conference Centre) and from the Leukaemia Foundation’s Walk Of Life registration table in Peel Street. If you see Ben about town in his signature Brigalow hat – be sure to get a photo and say G’day!
