Local music legend and ARIA Hall of Famer, Russell Morris, follows up his recently announced ARIA Award nomination by announcing a national tour.

Russell recently claimed a nod for Best Blues & Roots Album for his stunning release ‘Red Dirt – Red Heart’, alongside lauded local artists Jimmy Barnes, The Cat Empire, The Wilson Pickers and Kev Carmody. This marks his thirdconsecutive nomination in the ARIA Best Blues & Roots Album grouping, after taking out the category in 2013 with his acclaimed release ‘Sharkmouth’, which became the highest-selling Australian album of 2013.

Music lovers, industry and critics alike have praised ‘Red Dirt – Red Heart’, the third and final installment of Russell’s Australiana trilogy that saw the artist return to his early influences of American Blues & Roots.

Since mid-2016, Russell has been making headway in the United States, with the chart-topping ‘Sharkmouth ’album released in the U.S. in September. Morris wowed crowds in the U.S. as an official showcasing artist at Nashville’s Americana Music Festival in September, and will tour select American cities in support of Sharkmouth early next year.

Russell is thrilled to again hit the road, taking songs and stories of his Australiana trilogy to music lovers across the country.
