Press release:

Delaney Davidson and Barry Saunders (The Warratahs) reignite the runaway success of their firecracker collaborative album Word Gets Around to tour New Zealand in early 2021. Smashing the songs that took out the Country Music Artists of 2020 award with their infectious combination of rockin' country and swaggering, stomping shanty they serve up another smoking hot serving of good time tunes alongside their band.

Delaney Davidson and Barry Saunders met in a church. They were soundchecking for the Churches Tour with Marlon Williams and Tami Neilson. Barry playing old gospel songs and Delaney chugging out his signature blues trance thump. The connection was immediate. Barry joked about being fused together by lightning in a deal made in blood forever. Davidsons ears pricked up. Since then they have toured NZ a few times together and produced an album of songs with the rocking strength and dark power of Davidson previous work naturally paired with the heartfelt, straight dealing and traditionalism of Barry’s past. A combination you can't miss.
