Travis Collins Concert
Saturday, 25 June 2022
Reigning CMAA Male Artist of the Year Travis Collins has long led the charge in the Australian country music fold with his soulful voice, earthy sound, and unique gift for piloting both sophisticated, heartfelt ballads and supercharged country-rock floor-fillers.
Since bursting onto the scene with Start the Car in 2005, Collins has fast established himself as a leading light in Australian song. Nine studio albums later and Collins is a regular mainstage fixture at Australia’s peak country music festivals from Tamworth Country Music Festival to CMC Rocks, and routinely plays to sold-out crowds across the country.
6 albums and 7 Golden Guitar Awards later, 2020 the release of subsequent outing Wreck Me, marked a personal milestone for Collins, taking out the No.1 spot on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, debuting in the Top 10 of the ARIA Albums Chart, and landing at No.4 on the iTunes Australian Albums Chart. Wreck Me also landed Collins his second ARIA Awards nomination for Best Country Album, his 8th Golden Guitar Award, and spawned the earthy Wreck Me: Acoustic Sessions.
The triple CMAA Male Artist of the Year and CMA Global Artist Award-winner has toured alongside US megastars Tim McGraw and Luke Combs, and recorded with Nashville’s best and brightest, including super-producer Luke Wooten (Dierks Bentley/Brad Paisley).
Recent years have seen Collins expanding his sound, songs, and live show still further, promising even bigger, better, and brighter things ahead – both onstage and in the studio.
