One of Australia's most loved pioneering singer-songwriters Joy McKean celebrated her 90th birthday at the packed-out TRECC on Wednesday.
Some of music's biggest names took to the stage to perform their version of Joy's compositions at the Concert for Joy.
Iconic songs, made famous by the late Slim Dusty, such as Lights on the Hill, Biggest Disappointment, Ringer from the Top End, Walk a Country Mile and Indian Pacific have resonated with Australian's since Joy took out the first-ever Golden Guitar Award in 1973.
Country music superstar Troy Cassar-Daley was one of the acts to take to the stage and summed up everyone's view of Joy.
"Joy has been an inspiration to our industry and in a workplace mostly dominated by males, she stood her ground and earned the respect she so rightly deserves. She is, a national treasure," he said.
