In Billie-Jo’s case, it’s Coffs Harbor Toyota, 192-196 Orlando St, Coffs Harbour.

Leading up to the Grand Final, held during the Tamworth Country Music Festival in April, the regional pop-up concerts are a great opportunity for finalists to meet their fans and have a bit of a show in front of an audience.

“It’s so cool,” a happy Billie-Jo told News Of The Area.

Growing up in Quirindi, south west of Tamworth, Billie-Jo was born with country music in the air.

“I’ve always known Star Maker and seen people like Keith Urban and Gina Jeffreys win and launch their careers, but I never imagined I would have the confidence to get into it.

“But last year I just thought I was going to put my name in and I didn’t expect to earn a place.

“It doesn’t matter if I keep winning or whatever, it’s such a cool experience and I’ll meet other up-and-coming artists.

“It’s so exciting to be a part of it, you don’t know who you might meet through this experience, meet people and make new friendships.”

Billie-Jo said she hasn’t decided which five songs she will sing, but she can give us two details.

These are songs she released in 2021, “Feels Like Us” and “Eyes Wide Open,” and both have official music videos available on YouTube.

Fans who attend the free pop-up concerts will also have a chance to win a Tamworth Country Music Festival Experience Prize by entering via QR code at the pop-up venue.

Prize includes Toyota Star Maker Grand Final Country Club tickets, Golden Guitar Awards tickets and two nights accommodation.

The ten finalists will perform in front of a jury in the grand finale on Tuesday April 19, during the 50th anniversary of the Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Star Maker is an annual search for an individual country music artist over the age of 18 who is ready to take the next step in their career and has the greatest potential to take advantage of the opportunities presented in the award package.

Billie-Jo Porter will play Coffs Harbor Toyota at 4 p.m. on March 11.
