SOUTH AFRICAN COUNTRY LEGENDS
The legends of South African country music . The legends are Lance James, Barbara Ray, Bobby Angel, Matt Hurter and Tommy Dell , Alan Ladd, Cheree, JJ Stephens and Jason Bradleyand many other Country Stars and Legends.

 
Lance James has more than 60 albums to his name, the worst of which was recorded way back in the 60s already! Lance is known as the Big Daddy of South African country music and has received many awards during his career of almost 50 years. The ATKV dubbed him "a living icon", and Vonk magazine recently gave him a "Lifetime Achievement" for his contribution to the South African music industry.
Lance also recorded various albums with Queen of Country Barbara Ray. Barbara emigrated fron Scotland to South Africa in die mid-60s, and has since become a household name. Twenty-two of her albums went gold, and she won many awards for her contribution to country music. Barbara is especially well-known for her hits "I don"t wanna play house" and "Down the Mississippi", and also tours with one of SA"s other great country legends, Bobby Angel.
Bobby Angel has been known as the King of Country since he took the music world by storm with his 1975 hit, "You ask me to". Many more hits followed, and his latest release, "Wals van die lewe", confirmed Bobby"s status as evergreen musician.
Tommy Dell, also known as The Killer, and Sally Vaughn represented South Africa in Nashville in 1984. The main singer of the Elvis group The Jordanaires was highly impressed with Dell"s work: "I"ve never seen a singer from another country command so much respect from an audience". No wonder, since nine of Tommy"s albums went gold ... while "Teddy Bear" and "Little Rosa" earned this artist double golden awards.Matt Hurter has been well-known in the South African country music industry for 40 years now. He is the current president of the South African Country Music Association and it was he who founded the SA Country Farm and managed it for 11 years. Matt is working on a new album at the moment, a large part of which will be music he himself wrote.
Alan Ladd was born in Lusaka, Zambia, in 1966. He and his 12 brothers and sisters (among whom was the legendary singer, Kupido) emigrated to South Africa in 1976. Ten years later, he recorded his first "seven single", with one of his own songs, Daddy, also on it. He attained great success as singer/songwriter in the years that followed, and his last two albums were released in 2006. The first, The Country Gospel CD, reached platinum status within two months, and sold more than 44 500 copies. The second, My Hart Klop Country, sold more than 37 000 copies within four months.


 

Bobby Angel (Robert  Englishman on 30 December 1936 in Johannesburg )

Bobby Angel is a well-known South African country singer, radio and TV star, with many hits under his belt he still performs regularly at festivals in and around South Africa.

One of Bobby’s biggest hits was a cover version of a Waylon Jennings/Billy Shaver song “You Asked Me To” which went straight to number one on the Springbok Radio Top20, the official South African Chart show, in March of 1975.  Another Top 5 hit for Bobby was “Green Eyed Angel” in July of 1976. But it was Bobby’s version of “You Asked Me To” that laid down the foundation that would eventually place him firmly in the South African Country Music book of legends.

Bobby Angel has officially been nominated to be Inducted into the IDSS Hall Of Fame before the end of the year. This international Hall Of Fame is recognized worldwide as the official South African IDSS Hall Of Fame
