This episode of the 2TM Our Country Podcast, Sally-Anne Whitten chatted to one of Country Music Founders, Max Ellis.
Sal and Max spoke about the early beginnings of the Country Music industry in Tamworth and Australia, how country music has evolved over the years, why people love country music and why it’s such an important part of Australian society.
Max also speaks about the creation of the Country Music Festival and how important that has been for both Radio 2TM, the community of Tamworth and tourism.
