GET your country music fix and raise money to help country women at the same time.
The annual 'Country Turns Pink' to be held at the West Tamworth League Club, will support the Cancer Council's Pink Ribbon Foundation to help women battling breast and gynaecological cancers.
Co-host of the event, singer songwriter and pink enthusiast Shelley Minson, said the concert would help a "great cause that deserves more attention".
"It's such a big problem for Australian women, I've got friends who are suffering with it at the moment," Ms Minson said.
It's set to be a jam-packed night of entertainment with festival favourite artists such as John Williamson, The Bushwackers, Alan Fletcher, Gina Timms, Dan Murphy, Bill Chambers, Kiara Rodrigues, Jayne Denham and Jason Owen set to take the stage.
"It will be a great start for people for the festival to see such a wide range of stars," Ms Minson said.
Raffles and prizes will also be drawn on the night.
Cancer Council community relations coordinator Kate Dubois said there were many barriers to accessing support for women in country areas.
Getting access to a GP, finding time to make an appointment and being able to travel into town from isolated areas are all problems facing country women, Ms Dubois said.
But the money raised from the concert will help break down these barriers.
"It helps us to make sure that we can offer country women places to stay at Inala house when they need to come to Tamworth for treatment," Ms Dubois said.
"It means we can transport people on our transport for treatment vehicles and offer them at home help with cleaning and gardening."
The concert will be held at the West Tamworth League Club, on April 19 at 7:30pm
Ms Dubois encouraged everyone to "don some pink and show their support".
