True-blue country girl makes her way to Savannah

GROWING up in rural Australia, country music and the country way of life has been in singer-songwriter Abbie Ferris’s blood all her life and now, she is bringing that passion to Mareeba for Savannah in the Round in 2022.

Described as the definition of a true-blue country girl, Abbie’s father worked the sale yards and Abbie herself was on horseback by the time she could walk and like many other’s in rural Australia, fell in love with country music. 

Abbie was awarded the Market the Music ‘Emerging Artist Scholarship’ in 2017 which led to an appearance on the Country Music Channel Awards red carpet and a festival debut at the Groundwater Country Music Festival. 

Having cracked into the festival circuit in her debut year, Abbie followed up with performances at Country at the Camp and Australian Music Week in the same year. 

Now in 2022 Abbie has released four singles to radio including “For A Moment” in 2018, “Beat You At Your Own Game” in 2019, and “Love Up On Me” and “Bad Boy Crush” in 2020. 

Each release has seen Abbie improve her chart position, with the most recent release reaching #21 on the Official Airplay Chart and #3 on the Kix Country Hottest 20. 

On the back of this success Abbie has secured a spot in this year’s star Savannah in the Round line up set to rock the Mareeba Rodeo Grounds Queen’s Birthday long weekend this October. 

Coming off the success of last year's inaugural festival, Savannah in the Round 2022 is set to be bigger and better than the last with the inclusion of overseas acts.
