Adam Brand and Travis Collins with special guest Matt Cornell

Dirt Track Cowboys – The iconic song that came out on Adam Brand’s debut album back in 1998 captured the imagination of thousands!

The song became the unofficial anthem for speedway tracks all over the country as well as the song embraced by ute drivers, bike riders and the B&S crowds everywhere.

For 2013 Adam has decided to go back to his roots and put together a high-energy, high-octane rockin’ show that will tour Australia.

wp-adam-brand--02Adam has enlisted the help of his good mates Travis Collins and Matt Cornell. These three boys know how to get loud and get the room rockin’.

Travis Collins is well known for his masterful guitar playing and stellar vocals as well as his storytelling style of songwriting. Travis is a powerful performer and it’s only a matter of time before the world finds out about this budding superstar!

Matt Cornell is one of Australia’s up-and-coming country artists, who for the past decade has been in demand as a musician and backing vocalist. He has toured the world with some of the biggest names in the music business. His new single Days Too Remember is airing nationally on CMC and his new EP will be on iTunes early 2013.
