The 2001 Australian and New Zealand Tour with Artist, Jerry Hill (CA), Sylvia Winters (GA), Rusty Evans (CA), Taylor McKay (IN), Woody Wills (AK), Shelly Streeter (CA) (Pictured here) was suppose to begin from the USA on 9-12-2001 but as we all know was delayed because of 9-11-2001. All Airports were closed down at that time. We finally left on the 13th and arrived in Melbourne, Australia on the 15th as there was NO 14th because of crossing the International Dateline. I have to say the flight back was much shorter than the flight over but did seem just as long. We actually arrived back in the USA a few hours before we left on the same day.
We visited several Radio Stations and the American Embassy where thousands of letters, notes and flowers had been laid on the grounds around the Embassy. It was a very moving experience for all of us.
Both Australia and New Zealand are fantastic places and the love their Country Music down under. The people are friendly, kind and considerate. If you ever have the opportunity to visit down under, please do so.
This CD contains 4 songs each by each of the Artist on tour with WHP.
