Sara Storer celebrates 6 Golden Guitar nominations with release of new single 'COME ON RAIN'

 

Following her nomination for Best Country Album at the upcoming 2013 ARIA Awards for her new record ‘Lovegrass’, Australia’s finest storyteller Sara Storer was this week announced as the Leading Female Nominee for the 2014 Country Music Awards of Australia with 6 Golden Guitar nominations.

Storer is a finalist in the categories of Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Vocal Collaboration of the Year (with John Williamson), Heritage Song of the Year, Single of the Year and APRA Song of the Year.  

To celebrate this achievement, Storer has launched the new music video for the album’s  second single, ‘Come on Rain’, which is at media now.  

‘Come On Rain’ has been nominated for Song of the Year at Australian Country Music’s night of nights.   

“This is a co-write with my brother Greg Storer. It’s the perfect song to start the album. It expresses what matters most and what we pray upon,” says Sara Storer.

“It sums up once again the everyday thoughts and feelings of a farmer’s mental war with the bloody weather!”

‘Lovegrass’ debuted at #25 on the ARIA Mainstream Album Chart when released in August and has been one of the most critically acclaimed albums of 2013. 

Sara Storer began her recording career with ABC Music, releasing the Gold selling album Chasing Buffalo (2000) followed by Platinum selling album ‘Beautiful Circle’ (2002) and Gold selling album Firefly’ (2004) before again topping the Country Album sales charts with Silver Skies’ (2007) and her Greatest Hits collection ‘Calling Me Home: The Best of Sara Storer’ in 2010.

Sara Storer has gone on to become one of the most respected singer/songwriters in Australia. She has won a staggering 14 Golden Guitar Awards in addition to her Platinum and Gold albums.

“Sara has a unique way of seeing and expressing her observations of love and life in the bush. So she is a songwriter who will be remembered beyond her lifetime,” says iconic bush balladeer John Williamson.

‘Come On Rain’ was produced in Australia by the multi-award winning Matt Fell, who produced the entire ‘Lovegrass’ album. 

Sara Storer will appear at the 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
She will play a show at TRECC on January 23, 2014. Tickets are on sale at www.entertainmentvenues.com.au.
