NRMA BusinessWise Supports Aussie Country Music

Iconic Australian brand to connect with Premium Events for the 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival

Tuesday, 8 October 2013

For the first time in history, NRMA BusinessWise will have a major presence at the largest music festival in the Southern Hemisphere, the 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
With NRMA’s proud heritage of supporting the NSW and ACT community for the past 96 years, the mutual will support some of Australia’s biggest Country Music stars at the 2014 event.
NRMA Motoring & Services Head of BusinessWise and Membership Strategy, Matt Beattie said NRMA’s BusinessWise program was excited to be supporting a range of premium events at the largest music festival in the Southern Hemisphere.
“NRMA BusinessWise is proud to be making a major investment in the festival which supports the Tamworth community – we’re keen to use this opportunity to meet with new business customers about how we can better meet their needs, while supporting Aussie Country Music in the process!” said Beattie.
NRMA BusinessWise provides roadside assistance and motoring support to over 21,000 fleet running businesses in NSW and the ACT.
Some of Australia’s premier music talents including multiple Golden Guitar winning and nominated artists will be teaming up with NRMA Motoring & Services to provide a collection of the best entertainment at the festival.
The NRMA kicks off its relationship with Country Music at the festival in style on the first weekend of the event, after securing naming rights for one of 2013’s stand out events – the Country Music Cocktails. This will be followed by a series of concerts sponsored by NRMA BusinessWise over the duration of the Festival.
Headlining this line-up of concerts will be Dianna Corcoran, Paul Costa, Amber Lawrence and Aleyce Simmonds.
Two-time Golden Guitar winner Dianna Corcoran will be teaming up with Tamworth’s own Aleyce Simmonds for an amazing evening of music at the Capitol Theatre.
“I’m so happy to have NRMA Motoring & Services sponsoring me at the 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival. Having the support of such a reputable Australian brand is a real honour and greatly appreciated. My dad was an NRMA approved mechanic in Parkes for many years and I know how proud he would be of this partnership.” – Dianna Corcoran
While another multi-award winner, Golden Guitar finalist and CMC favourite Amber Lawrence will bring her show to The West Tamworth League club. She is also bringing her current touring buddy and runner-up of the 2013 X-Factor TV series Jason Owen along to open the show.
”It’s fantastic that an iconic Australian company is supporting Australian Country Music. We spend so much time as country singers driving the great open road of Australia so it’s great to have NRMA Motoring & Services’ support on and off stage!” – Amber Lawrence
The final show will also be at the Capitol Theatre and will see four-time Golden Guitar nominee, ARIA chart-topper and consistent festival-success Paul Costa teaming up with Sydney-based rising stars Georgia Fall to rock the house, country-style!
”I’m excited to be heading back to the Tamworth Country Music Festival 2014 for my show at the Capitol Theatre. It’s always great to have the support of the NRMA Motoring & Services as we travel thousands of kilometres each year and they’re always there when we need help on the road. This year they are supporting Country Music on stage too. This is going to be a great year!” – Paul Costa
Demonstrating their support for grass-roots country music, NRMA BusinessWise will also support the long awaited debut album launch from Georgia Fall. The album “Love The Hard Way” has been two years in the making. It has been produced by Golden Guitar-nominated producer Sean Rudd, engineered by Grammy Award Hall Of Fame member John Hudson (Tina Turner, Phil Collins and Pink Floyd) and mastered by 2013 Grammy-winning William Bowden (Gotye).
“The NRMA looks forward to partnering with some of the best artists and events at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2014.”
