Iconic Australian country artist James Blundell returned to his country-rock roots with Ring Around the Moon, released in March this year. Inspired by celestial phenomena, childhood memories, life lessons, homesickness and love, Ring Around the Moon is the latest offering from an artist who changed the landscape of Australian country music when he emerged in the late 80's. James was the first of a new breed of Australian country artists to find a young audience and achieve gold and platinum sales. When the first single, Higher than Heaven was released in February, it was quickly added to stations across the nation and the video reached the No.1 spot on The Country Music Channel's Top 30 Countdown. The follow-up single and album title track, has followed quick – giving James two No.1s in the space of a couple of months.
