Sunny Cowgirls, Country Music Artists

Posted on 2 April, 2013 at 19:04



                                                                   G'day!

I'm thrilled to announce that I'm talking with the Sunny Cowgirls today!

Welcome, Celeste and Sophie, it's great to have you here. :)


I'll start with you first, Celeste...    

What inspired you to become a country music artist? 
Growing up on a farm and being surrounded by country music. 

Can you tell us a bit about your most recently released album, 
or song? 
Our latest album is our most honest and our most grown up I think! We put all we had into this album, writing the songs and making an album we wanted to make. It’s called “What We Do” and that title pretty much sums up our lives at the moment. We’ve grown into ourselves and feel really comfortable with our music. 

What are you working on now? 
We are currently touring all over the place!! Just been to NSW and VIC and in the next few months we’ll be touring QLD, SA, WA and hopefully TAS.  

Have you got a favourite song that you sing? If yes, what is it? 
I don’t have a favourite at the moment – they’re all fun!!!   

Swag or room service for a romantic date? 
I’d say a swag underneath the stars 

Holden, Ford...or something else? 
Holden 

Favourite Food? 
Very difficult question!! 

Favourite Movie? 
Anything with Will Ferrell in it. Anchorman is a fave! 

Favourite Aussie saying? 
Strewth!!!! 

If you could have a kangaroo, koala, wombat, crocodile, galah or python as a pet which one would you choose, and why? 
A galah so I could teach it stupid things to say 

Who would you like to trade places with for a day, alive or dead, and why? 
A lawyer – because it’d be so different!!!! 

If I looked in your fridge right now what would I find? 
Fresh lamb, rocket, mangoes, berries, parmesan, milk, yoghurt and olives.

Craziest thing you’ve ever done? 
I don’t really do crazy stuff! 

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

Four words that describe you… 
Happy, relaxed, positive, easygoing.  



Okay, now it's your turn, Sophie...   

What inspired you to become a country music artist? 
Our family has always been very musical.  Our dad was in a band back in the day and also wrote songs.  He taught me everything he knew when I was big enough to hold a guitar.  Growing up on a farm in Victoria, surrounded by the country lifestyle and country music, it was something that came very naturally to me.  It’s been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.  It’s in my blood and it’s not going anywhere! 

Can you tell us a bit about your most recently released album, 
or song?  
“What We Do” is our fifth studio album, and our most honest one to date.  It tells a story of who we are and why we love what we do.  We recorded part of the album with Sam Hawksley in Nashville, and finished it off back here in Australia.  The songs are all written by myself and my sister and are very true to ourselves. 

What are you working on now? 
Right now we are in the middle of a national tour promoting our new album.  So far, it’s taken us to NSW & VIC, with QLD, SA & WA still to come. - A lot of travelling and a lot of dates!  So far, the album has been well-received and people seem to be loving the new tunes, which is always a good thing!  The album tour will take us through to June this year, after that, who knows???  Maybe a holiday! ;)

Have you got a favourite song that you sing? If yes, what is it? 
My favourite song to play live changes all of the time!  You can very easily get sick of a song when you’re playing it every night.  At the moment, “Green & Gold” (our current single) is my fave.  It brings a great energy to the stage and I think all of the musicians have a lot of fun with it as well.  The song is very patriotic and explains how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country of ours.  It always goes down well with those proud Aussies out there! 

Swag or room service for a romantic date? 
Depends on who it is! 

Holden, Ford...or something else? 
Holden               

Favourite Food? 
Way too hard to answer!  Love my red meat though. 

Favourite Movie? 
Anchorman 



Favourite Aussie saying? 
“He’s a few head short in the top paddock” 

If you could have a kangaroo, koala, wombat, crocodile, galah or python as a pet which one would you choose, and why? 
Crocodile, because it’s a bit different! 

Who would you like to trade places with for a day, alive or dead, and why? 
Stevie Nicks back in the 70s, because I’m currently reading a bio on Fleetwood Mac and would love to see what the music scene was like back then! 

If I looked in your fridge right now what would I find? 
Meat, lots of fruit and veggies  yoghurt, eggs, cheese, a bit of chocky and of course, beer! 

Craziest thing you've ever done? 
I jumped on the back of an unbroken horse (bareback) when I was 12 as part of a dare.  The horse took off and threw me into a fence.  A few tears and stitches that day! 

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

Four words that describe you… 
Sociable, ambitious, impulsive, loyal

Cheers, Sophie and Celeste, for popping by. It's been fun! 

Next week I'll be yarning with The McClymonts. 

Until then, keep smiling and dreaming!
Mandy xoxo
