The year 2020 will see Australian music icon John Williamson celebrate his 75th birthday, his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment industry and also a final big year on the road.

It was 1970 when John released his first song, ‘Old Man Emu’ which kick started a five-decade career crafting out some of Australia’s unofficial anthems, tender ballads and songs that captured the outback landscape and the people of the country.

He has toured the country like few others selling over five million albums along the way and was recognised by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.

With all that he has achieved, his combined milestones in 2020 will also have John officially announcing that 2020 will be his last major year of touring.

Perhaps John’s greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country; of who they are.
