Biography
Slim Dusty AO MBE (born David Gordon Kirkpatrick; 13 June 1927 – 19 September 2003) was an Australian country music singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer, who was an Australian cultural icon and one of the country's most awarded stars, with a career spanning nearly seven decades, the archetypical "Father of Country Music". He was known to record songs in the legacy of Australian bush poets Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson that represented the Australian bush lifestyle, coined the bush ballad, a style first made popular by Buddy Williams, the first artist to perform the genre in Australia, and also for his many trucking songs.
