About Dean PerrettHis Last Cattle Drive, the true story of cattleman Norman Quinlan, has landed Dean Perrett in the golden circle once again. The song, written by Carmelo (Charlie) Cacciola and produced by Stuart French, is a Bush Ballad of the Year finalist in the 2020 Toyota Golden Guitar Awards.There is an old saying “write and sing about what you know”. For an authentic traditional Australian country sound, look no further than bush ballad singer-songwriter, Dean Perrett. Having been raised and still working on the family cattle property Bowenfels, a soul of pure country is a natural thing for Dean. Over the past 31 years, Dean has earned his place as one of Australia’s favourite bush balladeers and leading traditional country artists. With four Golden Guitars under his belt, Dean’s credibility as a writer and singer of Australian bush songs goes unquestioned. Just like Dean, the songs he writes and sings are very authentic and genuine. Dean has released 16 albums to date with his latest being Earn Your Spurs. In January 2018, Dean was delighted to be announced as winner of the Bush Ballad of the Year at the 2018 Golden Guitar Awards, for the Neville Anderson-penned Henbury Blues.
