HALF a mil­lion record sales don’t lie – Adam Harvey is def­i­nitely one of Aus­tralia’s most pop­u­lar coun­try mu­sic stars.

Harvey’s ca­reer has spanned al­most 20 years and has in­cluded many a gold and plat­inum al­bum, mak­ing his show one not to miss.

The eight-time Golden Gui­tar-win­ner starts his 2015 tour at Rooty Hill on Satur­day, Novem­ber 14.

Rooty Hill res­i­dents are no strangers to coun­try mu­sic, with To­tal Coun­try be­ing held at Rooty Hill RSL ear­lier this year, and fans will en­joy an­other qual­ity per­for­mance from the bona fide star.

Harvey said he was ex­cited and ner­vous about the up­com­ing show.

“The pres­sure is on at Rooty Hill,” he said. “There are so many coun­try mu­sic fans out that way,” he said.

Fans can ex­pect a mix of clas­sics as well as some new mu­sic from Harvey’s Back­yard Ses­sions al­bum, which will be re­leased on Novem­ber 20. Recorded in Harvey’s own bar on the Cen­tral Coast, it de­liv­ers real sounds and no auto tune. And Harvey’s own dog even makes an ap­pear­ance.

“I have a lot of peo­ple who come up to me and say, ‘God, I’d love to spend a night in that bar’,” he said.

“I started to think ‘Why don’t we try and take a bit of that bar at­mos­phere and bring the bar to them?’.”

Harvey has gone above and be­yond with the new al­bum to en­sure it has some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“Fans kept ask­ing for a few tear­jerk­ing heart­break­ing songs, as well as a few party songs,” he said.

“So this al­bum will have it all, plus a bit of typ­i­cal coun­try stuff.”

Tick­ets are avail­able at rooty
