Australian Country Music only has one Benn Gunn
Australian Country Music only has one Benn Gunn.
The knock-about bloke with that sound, that attitude, and the personality that connects with rural and regional Australia in ways that many try to emulate. There are no frills, it is just Benn, his music and a good time for all who hear him play.
From humble beginnings, Benn has certainly carved out a niche place in the Australian Country Music Industry. With a swag of nominations and awards under his belt there is a wave of energy behind him with his highly active social media following building...with over 26,300 followers to date and growing, 500,000 to 1,500,000 post views and 850,000+ video views a week.
Benn has charted multiple singles and released his 4th album "Only In Australia" on the 27th October 2018 with multiple single releases also planned for the coming months.
Benn Gunn’s Only in Australia album is paying tribute to the supporters of home grown Aussie music, to our great country and all the true blue Aussies who make it great. It's Benn's own unique style which he calls Aussie Heartland Rock. Aussie Heartland Rock is characterized by a straightforward rock style, a concern with the average Aussie battler, and a conviction that rock music is about entertainment and a connection and purpose beyond entertainment with roots in Australian pub rock, country rock, Americana, rock and roll and folk rock.
