The Country Music Club of Boyup Brook will be staging an outstanding national touring show with Adam Eckersley and Brooke McClymont. “Adam and Brooke” are Australia's Country Music power couple! Known as two of Australia’s best country songwriters and have joined forces to perform light hearted, glass-half-full love songs. They will be accompanied by Brad Cox (2018 Star Maker Winner) and Mary Myfanwy. This special event will be held at the Harvey Dickson’s Country Music Centre on 9th June. Doors open at 6.30pm. Pre- purchase of tickets available by phoning 97651657.
When Brooke McClymont surprised fans by joining her husband Adam Eckersley on stage at last year’s Gympie Muster, news began circulating that more things were to come. Today, the husband and wife duo have shared their first single and video ‘Train Wreck’ and announced their debut album ‘Adam & Brooke‘, which is now available.
Fans can expect to hear songs from their new Album along with a selection of favourites from the extensive catalogue of both The McClymonts and Adam Eckersley Band. “The great thing about the acoustic shows is we get to tell lots of stories about the songs and we crack each other up when we’re onstage.” Adam commented. “The shows feel like we’ve got a bunch of our closest friends in our lounge room and there’s songs that make people cry and songs that make people dance so there’s something for everyone.” Brooke added. “We can’t wait to hit the highway with this show.”
Adam Eckersley and Brooke McClymont have mused about a musical collaboration for years, but finding time has always been a challenge. After all, the Adam Eckersley Band (AEB) is one of the hardest working groups in the country and Brooke’s commitment to her sisters in The McClymonts has always been unwavering.
“My sisters are busy having babies now,” she laughs, “so Adam and I thought this was the right time for our own thing.”
The couple are embracing that opportunity, – who, between them, have twelve Golden Guitars and two APRA Awards to go with Brooke’s two ARIAs.
Adam Eckersley has won 2 Golden Guitar Awards; the first in 2015 for New Talent of the Year and then in 2016 for Group or Duo of the Year for his group the Adam Eckersley Band. Their debut album ‘The First Album’ debuted Top 5 on ARIA Country Chart with ‘The Second Album’ debuting #7 on the ARIA Country Chart. Adam was also recognized for his songwriting winning the APRA Award for Country Work of the Year for “Give Her the World” in 2015 and first place in the Country section of the International Songwriting Competition in 2014.
Brooke McClymont is one third of top-selling, multi-award winning trio The McClymonts. With over 175k album sales, 2 x ARIA Awards, 10 x Golden Guitar Awards, 1 x CMA (USA) Award, 1 x APRA Award and 4 x #1 ARIA Country Albums, the McClymonts have firmly established themselves as Australia’s #1 Country group. They have released twenty singles over the last decade including #1 hits such as “House”, “Don’t Wish It All Away”, “Forever Begins Tonight”, “Here’s To You & I”, “Wrapped Up Good”, “Kick It Up”, “Two Worlds Collide” and “My Life Again”.
