The Wolfe Brothers get ready to take their Country Heart show to Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2019

With special guests Gord Bamford (CAN) & Jody Direen (NZ)


By popular demand, The Wolfe Brothers have announced they will take their Country Heart – three artists, three nations, one massive night of country music – tour to the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2019. Get ready country music fans – this is going to be huge! With special guests, Canada’s #1 Male Country Music Artist Gord Bamford and New Zealand’s Female Country Artist Jody Direen, audiences at Tamworth better get ready to party!

For Tom Wolfe, this special version of The Wolfe Brothers’ Country Heart tour, which they are touring throughout September and October 2018, is really about bringing all country music fans together. It is essentially, about getting to the country heart – and showing that heart to audiences. The show is jam-packed with energy, fun, fantastic songs, great stories, and of course, a lot of country music. “We love to showcase country music in its many formats,” says Tom. “There is something in this concert for everyone.”

Heading to Tamworth Country Music Festival is always a highlight for the band. They’ve been making the annual pilgrimage for years and plan their calendars around it. Tom says they wouldn’t miss it for the world and love that they can bring some mates along with them to share the ride. “The festival is full of great music, mates and great times,” he says. “It is a highlight every year, we wouldn’t miss it.”

Bringing special guests to Tamworth this year is an exciting prospect for The Wolfe Brothers – and what great guests they are! Gord Bamford is a multi-award-winning legend in Canada. Voted Canada’s Male Artist Of The Year on three occasions, Gord brings his good old boy, beer drinkin’ country party attitude to his shows and is fast building a big fan base in Australia after performing at the nation’s biggest festivals over the last two years. New Zealand’s current Female Artist Of The Year Jody Direen is considered one of the hottest artists on the scene today in her home country. After winning the Best Country Album award for her Shake Up CD at the last New Zealand Country Music Awards, Jody signed a deal with ABC Music in Australia.

Having performed shows with both Gord and Jody in the past, they know that an evening in their company is one that is entertainment from start to finish! In fact, this is the second time Jody has joined The Wolfe Brothers at Tamworth, she was the special guest at their show in January 2018. “We love them both,” says Tom. “Jody is so positive and so much fun to be around. Gord has become really close to us. We get on like brothers.”

That brotherly camaraderie will see The Wolfe Brothers head overseas after their Tamworth Country Music Festival show in 2019. They’re already working on travel plans to Canada – to work with Gord in his hometown. “We’re not ones to sit still,” says Tom of their plans for 2019. “There are a lot of new songs being written and we are planning to write more. There is a lot more touring to be done… touring is something we all enjoy so bring it on!”
