AUSTRALIAN country music fans will rejoice with Joy McKean signing copies of her book in Tamworth this morning.

McKean, widow of Slim Dusty, has released her book, Riding This Road, documenting the years of travelling Australia with Dusty and raising their two children on the road.

McKean will start signing at 11am at Collins Booksellers and chat with fans during her time in the Country Music Capital.

This year, McKean and Dusty were immortalised in bronze with a statue on Peel St.
