Ashley Cook

Gracemere Cattle Yards

from the LBS Country Collection Volume 22 album.

ASHLEY COOK started 2017 with a bang at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, winning ‘National Male Artist of the Year’ on Radio and ‘Qld Bush Balladeer of the Year’ at the Gold Media Medallion Awards. He also received his first ‘Inspirational Song of the Year’ award at ‘The Silver Brumby Awards’ and was honoured with another nomination at the ‘Peoples’ Choice Awards’.

Ashley is one of Australia’s best bush balladeers, one of the few to actually live the life he sings about. His single recalls the history and current significance of the GRACEMERE CATTLE YARDS, one of the biggest in the country, on the outskirts of Australia's Beef Capital, Rockhampton. Ashley is involved in and very passionate about the Australian Cattle Industry, regularly buying cattle from the yards for his beef operation at Thangool in Central Qld.
