As the saying goes, you’d have to be living under a rock to not know about the devastating drought currently affecting large parts of Australia, with 100 per cent of New South Wales drought declared and other states also in desperate need of a drink. Now you can ‘Shout the Land a Drink’ with the new single by that time to be released on 27 August, from The Hay Balers.
The Hay Balers are the creation of Golden Guitar winner Matt Scullion, who wrote the song and has joined forces with Charles Alder from Rural Aid/Buy A Bale. The other Balers are his good friends Tania Kernaghan, Drew McAlister, Simply Bushed and James Blundell.
Produced by Shane Nicholson at Sound Hole studios, ‘Shout the Land a Drink’ was written by Scullion on a recent trip to Tamworth, where he was overwhelmed by the effects the drought was having on the community.
All profits from the sale of the song online will be donated back to the people who need it most: our farmers, who are an integral part of Australian life and the primary producers we depend on for wheat, beef, wool and a whole lot of other things.
