Winner announced in Adam Eckersley and Brooke McClymont Cobar competition

Australia’s golden couple of country music Adam Eckersley and Brooke McClymont are taking their national tour to Cobar later this month to promote their first ever album together.

Adam and Brooke will perform on Saturday, June 23, with support from Brad Cox at the Cobar Bowling and Golf Club.

And thanks to an online competition, local girl Emily Pitt has won a double pass to see them perform live at Cobar after taking part in a quiz on the Western Magazine and Nyngan Observer’s websites. 

Earlier this year they celebrated their debut album ‘Adam and Brooke’, which hit the number one spot on the ARIA Country Album Chart.

The five-month long ‘Highway Sky Tour’ will take the duo across Australia, but Adam is no stranger to western NSW, having lived previously in Cobar.

“I try and get back to play there every year,” he said. “I’ve still got a few friends at Cobar.”

Having lived in a rural town, Adam said it was crucial to both him and Brooke to perform at the smaller venues.

“It’s important to play for a regional audience, there’s not always a lot of stuff going through those smaller towns,” he said.

After the tour finishes in July, Adam and Brooke will each go back to performing with the respective bands.

“Two weeks after Adam and I wrap up this tour I’ll get straight back into it with The McClymont’s,” Brooke said.

“And I’ll go back to performing with the Adam Eckersley Band,” Adam said.

But fans have no need to worry, Adam and Brooke both said at some stage they will tour together again, although it may not be for another couple of years so they encouraged everyone to grab their tickets now.

“It’s a show not to be missed,” Brooke said.
