“Many of these communities are in drought and need something to look forward to, to make them smile and allow them to forget about their worries for a couple of hours,” Tom said.

“There aren’t too many events where all age groups from toddlers through to retirees can enjoy the event,” he said. However Tom has a serious message to spread as well. 

Through his close relationship with the parents of Amy “Dolly” Everett, Tom was inspired to write “Speak Up”, following the teenager’s sudden death after being relentlessly bullied. He released the single with fellow Golden Guitar winner, Sara Storer, raising money and awareness for Dolly’s Dream.

Tom’s show will be at the Goondiwindi showground from 4pm on Sunday, January 13. Tickets are available via his website or Facebook page.
