Hits the # 1 spot on CMC

16th June 2005
That makes it two in a row!
The clip for "Mexican Lady" raced up the CMC top 20 to hit the # 1 spot this week.
"Mexican Lady" was hot on the heels of Col's first clip, "My Place" which also shot to the # 1 spot.
Col is absolutely delighted and agrees the fun he had in making both these clips has shown through and believes that helps make them fun to watch too.
Jason Millhouse who shot, directed and edited both Col's clips deserves a huge pat on the back.
We can't wait to see what they come up with for the next clip!

IS CMC's -

The clip for MEXICAN LADY is sure to bring a smile to the face of all that see it.
Col is featured in the clip playing many characters and again like his first clip MY PLACE, it shows the fun and very likeable side of Col that fans just love.
MEXICAN LADY was released to radio on NFS 95 and has received remarkable airplay so far.
With Col's first clip MY PLACE being selected as country pick and then going on to hitting the #1 spot on CMC's top 20 the hope is MEXICAN LADY will do the same.

Col Finley makes the Movies . . !
The song ‘Devil’s Ride’, by leading independent country music artist Col Finley, is to be featured in the upcoming full length Australian feature film, ‘Wolf Creek’.
A horror thriller set in the Outback, ‘Wolf Creek’ is to be released next year.

“The song, ‘Devil’s Ride’ is from one of my very first CD’s,” explained Col who has just relocated to Brisbane because of the increasing demands of live work and album promotion for his current release ‘Only the Truth’. “I was really surprised when I got the call – and I’m not sure yet whether to be flattered or worried!”

Col Finley’s songs have been in extra demand lately – ‘My Place’, the incredibly popular single from the new album, has just been included in the ABC’s educational music series ‘Sing’ which is distributed to schools and schoolchildren nationally as both a book and CD.

A video clip for ‘My Place’ has also just been shot while Col continues to enjoy great airplay support from radio across the country earning him a well-deserved placing in the national Country Airplay chart.

With nine shows booked for Tamworth, it’s going to be hard to avoid the music of Col Finley – and that’s how the fans like it!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce this long awaited, highly flavored album from Col Finley “Only The Truth”.
It is the best collection of songs written by Col Finley and also featuring co-writes with some of the most talented songwriters from across the world. (available at all music stores)

Col has always produced a high standard of recording, underlined by his past awards and chart successes, and backed up with high-energy live shows. Col is rated as one of the hardest working independents today - “Australia best kept secret” and now signed to ABC Publishing and Michael Flanders Management.

The Australian leg of his “Only The Truth” tour starts on the 7th March 2004 on the Gold Coast and travels south east, until Col flies into Austin Texas for the prestigious music industry event, South by South West Festival. Col then travels onto Nashville to finish his trip with shows at the legendary Blue Bird Café, The Douglas Corner and The Tin Roof, showcasing his songwriting and the new album.

Then its back down under to finish his tour through Australia, which will see Col head from Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, North Coast and back to Brisbane. From there Col Finley will continue north to perform though the top end, Western Australia, Northern Territory, finishing his Australian marathon with a huge show at Gatton Qld.

Then it’s back on the plane to the USA to finish the American tour with a group of 20 Col Finley fans for an unforgettable, fun filled trip through LA, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, St Louis, winding up the tour with shows in St Louie and Nashville and a visit to the House of Blues.

The success so far of “Only The Truth” here in Australia is just a small indication of where it’s headed across the world. First week of release saw over 250 albums sell in 5 days.

We thank you for your continued support, please feel free to email any reviews and comments.
