Groundwater Country Music Festival swells with 2nd line-up announcement

Groundwater Country Music Festival has today revealed the second round of artists that will boot-scoot their way to Broadbeach this July.

US country-rockers Davisson Brothers Band and local talent such Casey Barnes are just some of the big names set to join the already impressive line-up, which features Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole and The Wolfe Brothers.

Far From Folsom songs of Johnny Cash featuring Tex Perkins and the Tennessee Four with Rachel Tidd is another unmissable act that will perform this year.


Joining these artists is Graeme Connors, one of Australia’s most eclectic singer/songwriters who will tour regional Australia before bringing ‘the backcountry’ to the Gold Coast for his debut performance at Groundwater.

“What better way to spend a weekend?” said Graeme Connors. “Sun, sand and the best Australian country music has to offer! I’m really looking forward to performing at Groundwater for the very first time.”

Festival Director Mark Duckworth said: “Groundwater will continue to give country music the respect it deserves , paying tribute to classic moments in the genre’s history with The Songs of Johnny Cash, celebrating story tellers like Graeme Connors and Drew McAlister, encouraging breaking acts and welcoming international guests like the Davisson Brothers Band to join the party…It’s going to be a big year.”
