He’s been described as the
Singing Rough Rider, the Singing Bushman and the Voice
Of The Outback, but all these titles are only part of the Brian Young
teenager, Brian took to the road competing on the rodeo circuit, and in 1954
at the age of 18 won the World Brahman Bull Riding title. His competing
career was cut short by injury, but his other love of performing Country
Music came to the fore.
Brian Young Show has been touring ever year since 1977, taking fantastic
entertainment to the cities and towns and the far reaches of the Australian
Outback. The tour has brought major entertainers like the incomparable
Jimmy Little and Golden Guitar winners Troy Casser-Daley and Beccy Cole to
fans all over Australia.
Golden Guitar Winner and successful recording artist with his latest
album “People and Places I’ve Known” hitting the airwaves, Brian Young
received the ultimate accolade at the 1999 Tamworth Country Music Festival
when he was elevated to the Australian Country Music Roll of Renown.
He was also awarded the Tamworth Songwriters Association’s prestigious
Songmaker award during the festival acknowledging his major contribution
to Australian Country Music songwriting, and at Tamworth 2000 received the
TSA’s Tex Morton Award and the Outback Trailblazer Award. On the Queens
