The long-awaited life story of John Williamson: an Australian icon, a much-loved legend of the music industry and man of the land.
Williamson takes us through his life, from growing up on the land in the Mallee and Moree in a family of five boys, to being the voice of Australia.
Beyond the songs, John has revealed barely anything about his private life in his forty-year career. He opens up here, talking about the tough times, the great times and what matters to him. In his distinctive Australian accent, he tells it like it is.
This is a journey across the breadth of Australia, and beyond.
