Time to Rise and Shine with Gina Jeffreys
OFTEN called Australia's Queen of Country, Gina Jeffreys rocks Nelson Reserve tomorrow as part of the State Government's Rise and Shine tour.
Jeffreys is no stranger to the Gympie Region having played at the Muster on numerous occasions.
It's now more than a decade since she won the Toyota Star Maker Quest.
It launched a remarkable career that has not only taken her to the top of the country music industry - where she still reigns supreme - but continued to bring new surprises and successes for this talented and vivacious woman.
After releasing her first single Slipping Away through BMG Music, Gina signed a record deal with ABC Music, and released her first single for the label Two Stars Fell in 1993.
The song went straight to No.1 and the career of Gina Jeffreys was launched.
Her debut album The Flame went platinum, and the following January Gina won her first Golden Guitar for Female Vocalist of the Year.
During her time with ABC Country, Gina enjoyed a dream run.
She released five albums, each one rocketing to the top of the Country charts, and along the way gathered an impressive collection of four Golden Guitars, four MO Awards for live performance, an APRA Award, two Victorian Country Music Awards and CMT Video of the Year for Dancin' With Elvis.
The concert starts at 1pm tomorrow.
