The Hay Balers are Matt Scullion, James Blundell, Tania Kernaghan, Drew McAlister and Simply Bushed, who together with Charles Alder from Rural Aid/Buy A Bale decided to record a song Matt had written called Shout the Land a Drink, which was released today going straight to #1 on the iTunes Country singles chart, with thanks to everyone who has donated so far by purchasing the song.
Produced by Shane Nicholson at Sound Hole studios, Shout the Land a Drink was written on a recent trip to Tamworth where Matt was overwhelmed by the effects the drought was having on the community at large not to mention the man on the land.
Together with Klik Productions, the band went out west to film the official music video for the song, which premiered this morning on the Country Music Channel.
“We’re passionate about this song and what it represents. Hopefully, Shout the Land a Drink can raise not only more awareness and desperately needed funds but also the spirits of the folks doing it tough out there in one of the worst droughts in recent memory.” – Matt Scullion / The Hay Balers
