US country music artist Brett Eldredge will make his Australian debut at Winton's Way Out West Festival this month.
Hidden in the heart of Outback Queensland, Brett and other artists including Jon Pardi, Missy Higgins, Travis Collins and Amy Shark will perform at the one of the biggest music festivals in the west from April 25-28.
Having just concluded concerts in Europe, Brett said he was excited to travel to Australia to experience a new fan base.
"I am most excited for a new energy, a new crowd and to go somewhere even further from home - is so cool and I couldn't be more excited about it," he said.
"I hear it (Winton) is way out in the middle of nowhere, which is what I love. I love going to new places in the wild country.
"Australia has always been at the top of my list and I finally get to tick that off and hopefully keep going back."
After his concert in Winton, Brett said an Australian tour could be a real possibility.
"Yeah absolutely, I think my first trip there is to make a lot of new friends and fans and make it so I can come back many times," he said.
"I love the travel aspect and getting in front of new fans and meeting new people.
"The fact I get to go so far from home, play and sing songs that I wrote is about the coolest feeling in the world, so I will be there and I already know I will want to be back."
Signing his first record deal in 2009, Brett had his first hit in 2012 with "Don't Ya" and said his music was raw and truthful.
"Just from my concerts I think people like the honesty and energy of my music. I think it is truthful and I can see it on the faces of the crowd. It gives me meaning and purpose to be up there," Brett said.
"For me I grew up in a small farm town in Illinois called Paris. I grew up singing a lot of different genres including country - the place I grew up related to me the most, so country music spoke to me more then anything."
When asked who the biggest inspiration for his career was, Brett couldn't go past our most famous Aussie artist, Keith Urban.
"I would answer this even if I wasn't talking to someone from Australia, but Keith Urban is probably my biggest," he said.
"I toured with him more then any other artist, he was kind enough to talk about my music on an interview when my first single came out and how it made him cry and how he loved the song.
"Then he asked me to tour with him and my career really took off after that. He was a big mentor to me so he would definitely be my number one - I love him."
When talking about love, we asked if he was looking for a special someone in his life.
"I'm always looking for that one. I am single and always singing about it, so maybe in Australia."
