Boulia’s Ali S is set to perform his original ‘Talkin Bout Brooks’n’Dunn’ at Doomben’s ‘Country Music Race Day’ next weekend.
‘Ali S Country Singer’ is a semi finalist in the Rising Talent competition where up-and-coming country music stars compete to win a trip to Nashville.
This Country Music Race Day is for a good cause - $10 from each ticket will go to Buy a Bale to support Aussie farmers.
Ali thanked his supporters for voting and helping him get to the second round of the competition.
Ali is currently working with Rob Mackay and Pacific International Records on releasing his debut album.
Ali has spent most of his life in Far North Western Queensland, where he has worked as a plumber, underground miner and road contractor.
He loved singing to his work crew while camped out on the Plenty Hwy, or heading down to the local in Mount Isa with his crew for a bit of karaoke on his days off. He began his singing career in Boulia performing at community events, at pubs and clubs alongside Steve Forde.
On the touring front Ali has performed in front of thousands at the Bedourie Races, Boulia Camel Races, Teebar Rodeo and Campdraft and Westmar Campdraft, and he is set to perform at Dajarra Rodeo and Campdraft, Bedourie Bikes and Bulls, Burrumbuttocks Hay Runners Drought Relief Concert- Brisbane and Warwick Rodeo and Campdraft in 2016.
