COVID-safe concerts are making a comeback in the country music capital.
Local travel agent Chris Watson and country music star Travis Collins have announced a new event being organised for Tamworth.
'Fireside' will feature dinner and a show at Tangaratta Vineyards, which is about 15 minutes outside the city.
Acoustic tunes will be performed in an "intimate" sit-down setting by a stellar trio of Golden Guitar Award winning artists; Travis Collins, Amber Lawrence and Ashleigh Dallas.
Dallas is a Tamworth girl and the songstress said cancelled concerts due to COVID-19 have some left people at a loss for what to do.
"It is no doubt this year has set many challenges and hurdles to both the entertainment and tourism industry, leaving people disappointed at cancelled events and holidays," she said.
"Fireside is going to capture the power in connecting to people through music while also highlighting the importance of rediscovering tourism in regional towns.
"The power of music is strong, and while we still have to be physically distant, the connection can be stronger through songs and stories."
The event will run for two days at the end of September, on Thursday the 24th and Friday the 25th.
Only 20 tickets are available for each show and guests can opt to have a two course meal and door to door transport.
COVID health policies will be in place, with visitors who have been to hotspots banned from attending.
Mr Watson said the event had already attracted new money to the area, with people booked in to attend from places like Walcha, Wollongong, Cessnock, Armidale and Wagga Wagga.
Organisers hope to make the event annual.
