Australian Country Music
The music of Australia ranges across a broad spectrum of styles and genres. From folk to bluegrass to yodelling to the more popular, Australian country music is alive and well and enjoyed in Australia since the earliest days.
Although many people think of the USA when talking about country music, Australia has always had a tradition of country music with its own style. For example bush music or bush band music is a type of Australian country music where the lyrics focus on strictly Australian subjects.
The major celebration of country music in Australia is the Tamworth Country Music Festival held in January each year.
