Some of this year's appearing talent and line up...


Returning to the club for Tamworth City Toyota Hats Off to Country this year is an old favourite of club patrons, Allan Gumm. Travelling down from Queensland, Allan will kick things off in true country style on Thursday, July 11, at 6:30pm.

You’d better get there early on Friday as Anthony Taylor and Jared Scott will take the stage from 6:30pm for some pure country bliss.

Anthony delivered one of the best debut albums in recent history, showcasing his velvet vocals and dynamic guitar playing.

Tamworth is fortunate that the multi-talented Jared Scott calls the Country Music Capital home. When he’s not playing solo gigs, Jared fronts the very popular Redneck Gentlemen band, who had a #1 hit with Apple Pie Whiskey, from their stunning debut album. 

It’s a right royal occasion on Saturday when South Bowlo’s “King of Country” Alby Pool returns to his favourite spot in town from 6.30pm. You’re always assured of a great night of true country when Alby is around.

Hats Off To Country is an event you cannot afford to miss, featuring more than 100 individual stars over four massive days and nights.
