John McSweeney

It says something about the character of "John McSweeney" that, after being awarded "Queensland Country Entertainer Of The Year" a record 10 times, he gave up nominating to give someone else a go!

Since abstaining back in 1993 however, John has racked up bigger successes with the astounding sales of his "Songs You Know By Heart" series and numerous others that have netted him a "Double Platinum" Award, A "Double Gold" as well as just an ordinary "Run Of The Mill" Gold Award!.


All up he has released a total of 29 albums in Australia, 4 DVD's, 7 in New Zealand (Where his Gospel Album has gone GOLD and he hasn't even been there) and a number of releases in the United Kingdom and the U.S.A

Appearing with major acts such as "Charlie Pride", "Slim Whitman", "Peter, Paul & Mary", "Daniel O'Donnell, "Jon English & Marcia Hynes" John also has the distinction of performing on the "Grand Ole Oprey" Gospel Show.

His all around entertainer profile is enhanced by his ability to play not only guitar but "Saxophone, Clarinet, Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle & Drums". His impersonations of "Willie Nelson, Bee Gees, Gene Pitney, Merle Haggard, Dean Martin, Tiny Time, Hank Snow, Chad Morgan, Louis Armstrong, Al Jolson, Tex Morton & Johnny Ray" explains why his live performance date book is still full!
