‘Back In The Little Town’ – the self-penned new radio single from Southern Highlands based singer-songwriter Doug McIntyre, is the captivating story of the Australian prodigal son. The son leaves home, blows his inheritance in Brisbane, ends up sleeping in a cardboard box under the city’s ‘Story Bridge’, then crawls back home where the ‘old man’ accepts him with open arms.
This song possesses all the characteristics of a classic Aussie Country/Rock ballad and is the first single to be lifted from Doug’s third album “Riding Free”. Produced by current CMAA Producer Of The Year, Matt Fell (Sara Storer, John Williamson, Graeme Connors) the album will be released next month.
Doug grew up at Goolgowi, in the northern Riverina of NSW and has been inspired by everyone from Pavarotti to Slim Dusty. Music was always played in Doug’s childhood home with his grandad playing accordion and Doug picking up the guitar at 14. An artist who writes songs about Australia for Australians, Doug was named ‘Male Rising Star’ at the Australian Independent Country Music Awards, and went on to become a CMAA Academy of Country Music graduate.
“I’m fascinated by people’s stories, and I love this great country of ours! I share my passion through my words and music; light a spark in people, drop them in at the scene”
