Rachael In Music City

7 June 2017


Nashville, Tennessee is the heart and soul of country music and on Monday, June 5, 2017 Rachael Fahim, winner of this year’s Star Maker competition performed at a special event hosted by Chris Watson Travel and Destination Tamworth at Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville

The welcome luncheon concert is in it’s seventh year and the pre-CMA Fest event included both Australian {Travis Collins, Travis List, Kristy Cox, Liam Brew, O’Shea (pic above), Katrina Burgoyne} and US (Ty Herndon, American Young) artists making it a special up-close and personal treat for guests.

Rachael’s trip to Nashville forms a part of her prize as the Toyota Star Maker winner through the generous sponsorship by Chris Watson Travel Tamworth.

Rachael was gifted tickets to the huge CMA Fest concerts thanks to the Country Music Association (CMA) and she is spending time networking and co-writing while in Music City.

Last month, Rachael released Confetti (co-written with Melanie Dyer) her first single as the Toyota Star Maker winner. It was recorded in Brisbane at Red Engine Recording with producer Andrew Cochrane (Jared Porter, Kaylee Bell).

Watch the Confetti music video produced by Josh Favalaro, The Filmery here.
