Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole have announced their new duets album, The Great Country Songbook Volume 3, is due for release on September 9 and will be backed up with a national tour.

While the entire music industry was re-emerging from a difficult few years, Cole was suffering one of the worst years of her life personally, so Harvey suggested that cutting an album with an old friend could be the best medicine.

Cole says, "A few months ago, when I wasn't doing so well, my friend Adam Harvey checked in on me every week or so. He asked if there was anything he could do and I said, 'you could tour with me again, they are my happiest times.' So, he changed his year around and orchestrated this whole project. He said if I got better, he would tour with me till the bloody wheels fall off! That's what you call a friend."

Harvey adds, "Going on tour with Beccy Cole is like going on a rollercoaster ride at the amusement park. Its unpredictable, scary at times, amazing, and so much fun! I have to admit the tours I have done with Beccy over the years have always been my favourites and I can't wait for this one to start.”

Recorded at the Music Cellar on the NSW Central Coast with engineer Jeff McCormack and produced by Harvey and Cole themselves, The Great Country Songbook Volume 3 is about two best friends getting together again to record some of their favourite classic country songs.

The pair previously collaborated on The Great Country Songbook Volume 2 in 2017. The album debuted at #6 on the ARIA Charts and features covers of iconic songs like Islands In The Stream, If I Were A Carpenter, Jackson and more. It also features two songs with Troy Cassar-Daley, who joined Harvey on the platinum certified, The Great Country Songbook in 2013.

Over a period of 20 years, Harvey and Cole have toured Australia together a dozen times. Country music fans always regard the opportunity to see these great mates on stage together as a real treat and an absolute highlight. Fans received a taste of things to come when the inseparable pair recently hosted the 50th Golden Guitar Awards, leaving the audience in stitches.

Since that first tour 20 years ago, Harvey has built a landmark career - half a million album sales, Gold and Platinum albums, 9 x Golden Guitar awards and a CMA Global Country Artist award. In addition, his recent number one ARIA album, Songs from Highway One took home the gong for ‘Traditional Country Album of The Year’ at the 2022 Golden Guitar awards.

Harvey is also currently working on a book titled, Tales from The Road, which features a collection of stories from Harvey and his country music mates chronicling some of the funny, inspiring, and downright scary things that have happened on tour over the years.

Cole has enjoyed similar success with 11 x Golden Guitar awards to her name, multiple ARIA Top 10 Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, 3 x Gold-certified releases, and more than a dozen #1 Australian Country singles. The singer-songwriter was also awarded the ‘Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM)’ this year. 

Harvey and Cole will perform some tracks off their new album along with plenty of old favourites, when their tour kicks off on September 9 at Mackay’s Northern Beaches Bowls Club.
