Considered the First Lady of Australian Country Music, Slim Dusty’s wife, Joy McKean’s songs are the remarkable legacy of a creative life. Co-written by Garth Porter and Kelly Dixon, this vocal collaboration between Tom Curtain, Lee Kernaghan and Sara Storer is a tribute to Joy in her 90th year.
Tom Curtain is a multiple Golden Guitar winning Independent singer / songwriter, entertainer, horseman, entrepreneur, family-man and spokesman for rural health, living and working in outback Northern Territory.
He is the real deal. He has experienced his fair share of hardships from growing up in drought, to an industry collapse and nearly losing his livelihood, to reinventing his business and life by ignoring all those who said he couldn’t do it.
It is these experiences, together with his positive and determined outlook on life that define the person Tom is and that has inspired his creative song-writing. A believer in doing things differently, he uses these experiences to connect, engage and inspire his growing fans.
In May 2019, Lee Kernaghan forwarded Garth Porter a draft of some lyrics written by Kelly Dixon that honor the astounding contribution Joy McKean has made to Australian Country Music. Garth got to work creating ‘She Gave Us the Song’. Garth offered Tom the song to include on his album and Lee offered his support and his voice, along with Sara Storer.
This is their tribute to Joy in her 90th year.
