Country has never looked or sounded this good! McAlister Kemp's new album Harder To Tame, will be a “game changer” for Australian Country Music.

The album features unapologetically cutting edge mainstream country while maintaining the lyrical values fans have come to love from McAlister Kemp. With a harder rock edge and the influence of Nashville flowing through every track, still they manage to remain quintessentially Australian.

Harder To Tame is produced by Nashville’s most sought after emerging producer Jeremy Stover – the producer of the current Justin Moore hit ‘Point At You’ in the USA.

The first single and the title track was released on August 24 and was #2 on the iTunes charts by that night. It is also currently #1 on the CMC chart, with radio play around the country.

Since the beginning MK have had one hell of a ride. In just under 4 years, McAlister Kemp have established themselves as the premier duo in Australian Country Music… becoming giants (literally) of the genre.

They’ve topped the ARIA Country Charts, appearing in the ARIA Mainstream Top 20, Winning a Golden Guitar and two fan voted CMC Music Awards and scoring an ARIA nomination for their 2nd album Country Proud.

The Duo have become a major touring act in regional Australia, off the back of their explosive live show, songs that touch on real issues and developed a genuine connection with fans.

Following their appearance at this year's CMC Rocks the Hunter in March the pair caught the attention of visiting headliner John Rich of American duo Big & Rich. So impressed was he with the boys, that just over a month later, while the boys were in Nashville writing and collecting material for the Harder To Tame album, he invited the them to play a special gig at his house. .

Their second trip to Nashville this year not only saw them record the best album of their career to date but just before returning to Australia, new friend's Big and Rich drove them over 4 state lines and invited the MK on stage to sing their anthemic hit Country Proud to a 30,000 strong crowd at the Country Thunder Festival in Wisconsin.

The album will be released on January 17, 2014 with the album launch to be held at Blazes in Tamworth, straight after the Golden Guitar Awards on Saturday January 25 (where the boys are nominated in 3 States).

This is an album not just for country fan, it's for all those who like their music a little rough around the edge. Head to Blazes on Saturday, January 25 to hear the new sound of Australian country music.
