Jodi Vaughan is Australian by birth, however, she has carved a career as one of New Zealand's best known and most loved Country Music Artists. Her name became synonymous with New Zealanders on a regular country music TV show ‘That's Country' in the 1980's, when she became household name. Yet for all of her trips to the USA, and despite Gold Records and Awards, Jodi attended Tamworth Country Music Festival for the first time in 2020 bringing a tour of NZ Country Music Fans to Tamworth, which will be happening again in 2021.
It was an emotional time for Jodi and a long time coming for this Australian born kiwi singer to take to the big stage at Toyota Park for the International Showcase at Australia's biggest country music festival.
Though Jodi has been absent from her homeland's Country Music Scene, the duet Gold Album ‘Fairweather Friends' with Brendan Dugan, did release in Australia in the 1980's. Jodi's voice is just magic as she gives us the 2nd single ‘You Look Silly Cryin', a perfect follow on from ‘It's Not Always Love'. When asked about the new song, Jodi said
"I wrote the song quite a while ago after a disagreement with my then husband, who I have to add was the best husband ever. Anyway it gave me the idea for this song. We had a dog, he drank beer, he used to buy me flowers etc etc. I got an idea and ran with it. I think it started with the words 'You Look Silly Cryin' and the rest was my imagination. That's about it really !! Right from a little kid my imagination was rampant LOL"
Her first Australian single release ‘It Ain't Always Love' peaked at #14 on the Australian National Airplay Chart & #19 on The Official Tasmanian Country Music Chart making it a top 20 hit!
