Troy Cassar-Daley has come a long way from the 12-year-old boy from Grafton busking on Peel St at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Even as he expands the boundaries of what he is capable of musically, as the diverse list of collaborators grows longer, as his swag of awards and size of his crowds has grown and grown, the innate integrity and charisma powering his music has always remained a steady true north.
As he once sang, “I live the tales I tell”.

Throughout his thirty years of making music, Troy has been awarded numerous accolades including 4 ARIAs, 36 Golden Guitars, 2 APRA Country Song of the Year awards, 9 Deadlys (Australian Indigenous Artist Awards), 4 CMAA Entertainer of the Year awards plus 2 NIMAs (National Indigenous Music Awards).
In 2017 Troy was honoured as the 50th inductee into the prestigious Australasian Roll Of Renown.
With numerous gold and platinum records, Troy has achieved a staggering 31 Number 1 chart singles, all of which are collected on his new compilation album Greatest Hits – along with signature album tracks and two brand new TCD originals.
The 42 songs contained within Greatest Hits have been the soundtrack to the everyday triumphs, struggles and good times of Australians from the city to the outback.
“Doing an acoustic show of greatest hits mixed with stories of my life and musical journey will be very special,” Troy says.
“As an artist you can’t get a more intimate experience with an audience than this style of show. It will be a musical adventure showing you how the songs sounded the day they were born. This to me is the purest way to hear them and I can’t wait to share them with you.”
Tickets are $49 each and can be bought directly from the Ipswich Civic Centre website.
