LIKE a fine wine, Tania Kernaghan just gets better with age.
The country singer just celebrated her half-century milestone and released a new single, Better Worn In.
The self-confidence anthem was co-written with her sister Fiona and The Wolfe Brothers' Nick Wolfe, who Kernaghan met while officiating his wedding.
It's not until you're older that you realise all the scars, life-lines and grey hairs have all amounted to something.Tania Kernaghan
"I think when you're younger you compare yourself to the next big thing and you're always looking for approval," she said.
"Getting older there's a confidence of self-acceptance and a feeling that only comes with age.
"It's not until you're older that you realise all the scars, life-lines and grey hairs have all amounted to something."
Kernaghan is slowly becoming something of a celebrity celebrant, having married Beccy Cole and her partner Libby Donovan, and now Nick Wolfe.
It was her back up plan if she ever moved on from music, but her new song has renewed Kernaghan's passion with a more contemporary sound.
"You have to have compassion, when I put a wedding together I spend a lot of time with the couple talking about how they met and get the back story," Kernaghan said.
"Family and friends don't necessarily know all the history of how they got together and what they love about each other and I like to delve into that.
"I like to really set the story up, it comes from my performing and stage shows and I like to take people on a journey."
If she didn't work as a civil celebrant and music wasn't an option, Kernaghan said she'd be a precision racing driver.
Kernaghan has plans to take her music on tour with more dates to be confirmed.
