The Nashville Tapes is yet another career-best album for Adam Harvey. A deeply personal, powerfully reverent release not years but decades in the making, The Nashville Tapes is the masterwork of an all-time Australian country music legend.
Adam Harvey has long been one of Australian country music’s premier artists. With eight Golden Guitars on the mantelpiece including Male Vocalist of the Year Golden Guitars in 2002, 2004, 2005 and Album of the Year wins in 2002, 2008 and 2012. Add to that more than half a million album sales, back-to-back No.1 albums on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, three ARIA nominations, and a succession of Gold- and- Platinum-certified albums, and it’s easy to see that Adam’s trophy room sparkles from every angle.
Recent years have seen Adam team up with longtime mate Troy Cassar-Daley to record the Platinum-certified The Great Country Songbook (2014) which debuted at the No.1 spot on the ARIA Country Albums Chart, and at No.2 on the General Albums Chart before releasing Top 10 sensation Family Life (2014), rollicking good time Harvey's Bar. The Backyard Sessions (2015), and last year’s monumental The Great Country Songbook Volume II with Beccy Cole.
Adam and band are poised to take The Nashville Tapes on the road in the coming months, with support from The Voice Australia 2017 winner and Adam’s own newly minted lead guitarist Judah Kelly.
