THE Wolfe Brothers like to think they're pretty normal guys.
It couldn't be further from the truth.
Sure guitarist Brodie Rainbird and brothers Nick and Tom Wolfe are easy-going guys, but there's nothing about them that's average.
A lot has happened since the band released their first album Country Heart and won four Golden Guitar Awards in their first year as finalists, Nick said.
"There's been this wave of cool stuff that's come our way and we've been riding it until now," he said.
"Everyone always says you don't get into this to win awards.
"But I think you kind of do a bit. That's always been a big goal for us to win a Golden Guitar and to win for that night it just went from zero to 100."
The Tasmanian band toured for seven months of the last year without a week at home.
The Country Heart album opened up a new side to the band, one with a little more depth.
Their tribute to servicemen and servicewomen Hey Brother has moved crowds across the country.
It was really important to the trio to make sure it was done right, Nick said.
"I guess the message is that as a nation we send these people off to fight wars and keep peace in a disaster and it's a huge thing to ask of anybody," he said.
"We wanted to keep the song about hope and mateship.
"The last thing we wanted to do is have the song add to the stigma around veterans, we don't want to feed this machine that every veteran is broken or useless.
"These people are highly-skilled and some may need a bit of help, the community should be there to give them that help."
The song was born on the Spirit of the ANZACS tour with Lee Kernaghan, where The Wolfe Brothers met with veterans and their families and heard heartbreaking and uplifting stories.
For the video clip, the boys wanted to use real people and real stories, Tom said.
"We didn't intend to, but we ended up interviewing all these people and a simple chat we thought would go for five minutes ... we have five or six hours of interview footage," he said.
"It was amazing to hear their strength, people have lost parents, lost their sons but to hear still how positive they were was amazing."
The band has been busy writing new material but want to wait until they get it right, after their Country Heart album set the bar high.
"We took a lot of risks and luckily it really paid off," Tom said.
Catch The Wolfe Brothers on Friday at The Longyard from 7:30pm, supported by two-time 2019 Golden Guitar winner Andrew Swift.
