#Montefamousreview: Tania Kernaghan All Australian Girl
Tania Kernaghan’s latest album All Australian Girl is a great country romp. Beautifully produced and lovingly presented, Tania sings her tributes to the Australian out-back, her family and the Australian way of life. It is Tania’s seventh album and it is an album that is positive, happy and uplifting and will make you feel good. I am not a big fan of the country genre, however this is one album I had no problems listening to on repeat. Tania’s singing is effortless and seductive. It is the perfect album for any afternoon adventure.
