Troy Cassar-Daley, Country Music Artist

Posted on 20 March, 2013 at 3:14

G'day :)

I'm thrilled to be chatting to the one and only Troy Cassar-Daley ...hope you enjoy eavesdropping on the conversation. :)

Welcome, Troy, let's get to it...

What inspired you to become a country music artist?
I always loved to sing as a kid and once I had started playing guitar, my path became very clear.

Can you tell us a bit about your most recently released album, or song?
My album “Home” is a bucket list record for me to have made, the Nashville players I used were ones I have listened to on records since I was a teenager! The title track Home really describes the first ten year of my life and the house I was raised in.

What are you working on now?I am working on a record with a mate as a special project for next year (top secret)

Have you got a favourite song that you sing? If yes, what i?
At the moment I love playing a song called “Play” as a guitar fan and player it really explains my love affair with the six string devilwe all know as the guitar!!

Swag or room service for a romantic date?
I have slept on many a swag and I never found it romantic! It was always a place to crash out of necessity when drunk or on tour, I think the room service would be good at my age!

Holden, Ford...or something else?
My daily driver is a Hyundai Sant-Fe as we throw lots of crap in it at the farm and its always got a fishing rod in it or a Kayak on top, my weekend cruiser is our old EH Holden (Daphne is her name) of which I have owned 3 before this one, I can fix it and I love the smell of the vinyl and petrol, a great old family member

Favourite Food?
can’t beat a great Steak and veg I reckon (rare please)

Favourite Movie?
tender mercies Robert Duvall love it reminds me of Merle Haggard who I think it was based on.

Favourite Aussie saying?

If you could have a kangaroo, koala, wombat, crocodile, galah or python as a pet which one would you choose, and why?
I reckon a python as they only need a feed every now and then and don’t make too much noise!

Who would you like to trade places with for a day, alive or dead, and why?
God would be very interesting..

If I looked in your fridge right now what would I find?
Left over roast chook, always a half used pasta sauce, good coffee,and somethings to build a salad with!

Craziest thing you've ever done?
Embark on a career in Music ( mad I know)!!

If you were going on a holiday tomorrow, where would it be?

Four words to describe you…
Laid, Back, Country, Bloke :)

If you'd like to pop by Troy's website, here it is…

Until next week, keep smiling and dreaming
Mandy xoxo

Embarking on a music career is kind of the same as the author gig! But it's sweet when it happens. I remember meeting Troy in my cafe in Sawtell (we bought the cafe from his mate, Jamie - RIP mate - and he dropped by). As for jingo's ! Love it!
