Country Song is a witty, warm journey back into Australia's recent past. It's a rollicking celebration featuring music from some of Australia's renowned Indigenous entertainers and pure entertainment, revelling in the healing power of music.
It's the 70's and Jimmy takes a nostalgic trip through his past from talented teen to honey-voiced guitar-slinger to respected leader. Indigenous icons weave in and out of his life, as they chalk up a list of firsts for their people as Australia goes through a turbulent change.
You'll laugh, cry, dance and maybe even sing along with this inspiring tale.
