TANIA Kernaghan said the 2013 Farm Fantastic expo posed the perfect backdrop to her soulful country melodies.

Tania is part of a wonderful music line-up to take to the stages at this year's expo and is set to perform what will be a beautiful acoustic set.

Having spent more than two decades entertaining audiences around Australia, Tania said she was excited to take to the stage this weekend at the expo.

"I can't think of a better place to play than the expo and am very excited to play to all those wonderful Queenslanders," she said.

"The expo is an amazing opportunity to bring together so many facets of the farming industry and will be an exceptional weekend, I'm sure," she said.

"With all those wonderful stalls and such a wide range of information for everyone, I couldn't think of a better place to play, and I'm sure everyone will have a fantastic time up there."

Having toured the country for several years, Tania said she had become well accustomed to her lifestyle on the road.

"It's not for everyone, but it's all I know, to be honest," she said.

"I've been doing it for so long now and have grown to really love it because I get to see so much of Australia, especially regional Australia.

"I get to meet so many amazing people and I love hearing all their stories.

"That's the most satisfying part for me."

Growing up in a very musical household as a child, Tania said she had been inspired by her brother and Australian country music icon, Lee Kernaghan.

"Lee was always someone to admire and was always such a great support to me," she said.

"He has become a staple of Australian country music and had so much success and I am very proud of all he has achieved.

"He actually only lives about five minutes from my house, so when we are both home, we try and catch up as much as we can."

Farm Fantastic Expo will run from July 19-21 at Pumicestone Rd, Caboolture.
