A song written in a time of grief has inspired the entire ‘Country Cares Arena Tour’, coming to Nanango this Friday night.

Head on out to Nanango for some free family fun at the Nanango Showgrounds on Friday, 25 June.

Drought Angels and Larrican Entertainment are proud to partner for the event which highlights and acknowledges the mental health crisis in rural Australia by bringing the Nanango community together.

South Burnett Country singer-songwriter Larry Cann’s new single ‘Country Cries’ will be a main part of the show.

The single touches on the artist’s own story, revealing his own battle with mental health issues, following the suicide of a good friend -his experiences ignited his passion to raise awareness of suicide and break the stigma surrounding mental health, particularly rural Australia.

He will be joined on the night by Golden Guitar-nominated singer-songwriter Dani Young and country rock and lead guitar legend Chris Staff. A Nanango local artist will also be featured on the night.

There will be food stalls, bar and lots of activities for the kids which will be run by the local clubs.

Market stalls and information booths will be provided by various support services available in the South Burnett community.

The event will run at the Nanango Showgrounds on Friday, 25 June from 4.30pm to 9.30pm. To register head to: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/country-cares-arena-tour-nanango-tickets-157427526971?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
