Music stars join Paul Murray’s regional Aussie tour

MUSIC stars Daryl Braithwaite, Jessica Mauboy, Dami Im, Conrad Sewell, Adam Harvey and Samantha Jade have joined Paul Murray Live's Our Town national tour.

The Sony Music artists will join with Sky News and Harvey Norman to bring entertainment and financial assistance to families in regional areas.

In each episode an artist will perform live as well as conduct an interview with Murray.

The first stop is Toowoomba on Wednesday February 20, and will be broadcast on Sky News on Foxtel and WIN from 9pm. The musical guest will be country star Adam Harvey.

Singer Dami Im said he jumped at the chance to go bush.

"Regional Australia has always been very close to my heart, and I've been lucky enough to tour through some wonderful towns over the years," Im said.

"We will partner with the Country Women's Association in every district on the Our Town tour to understand where we can make a lasting contribution to the women of children of the local area.

"Every town will be different, but we will leave it up to the experts - the CWA and our franchisees and their staff to determine how we deliver real support."
