Having just completed a highly successful Tamworth Country Music Festival show and the Country Thunder Tour (with Adam Brand and The Sunny Cowgirls), McAlister Kemp are now preparing for the release of their highly anticipated new album Country Proud.
 

The 2011 CMC New Oz Artist of the Year and Golden Guitar winners for ‘Best New Talent’ will officially launch Country Proud, released through ABC Music / Universal Music Australia, when opening the main stage festivities at CMC Rocks The Hunter, on March 16.
 

Country Proud continues to touch on the themes typified on All Kinds Of Tough, but this time with bigger, fresher, bolder and more ambitious sound quality and production.
 

The album kicks off with the current Top #5 National Country Radio and Music Video chart single ‘Country Proud’ – a song that celebrates of the pride associated with being both Australian and from the country. With its powerful core message, gospel backing singers and even a hint of reverse banjo, ‘Country Proud’ has become the Australian country anthem of the summer!

Of the 13 tracks on the Country Proud album, 11 of them are written or co-written by one or both of McAlister Kemp’s members - Drew McAlister and Troy Kemp. The duo has successfully collaborated with premier writers from both Australia and the US on this album.
 

Country Proud’s other highlights include ‘After Midnight’, which features multi-Canadian Country Music Awards & Juno Award winners Doc Walker, as well as ‘Home’ – written by Cold Chisel legend Don Walker.
 

Country Proud is produced by 2012 Country Music Awards of Australia ‘Producer of the Year’ Matt Fell.
