In Things I Carry Around, Troy writes candidly and with humour about the early days, his rise to the top of the country music scene and the people and places that have shaped his path, revealing a fierce attachment to his family and his Indigenous heritage. A hard-working, fun-loving and prodigiously talented youngster, Troy grew into the role of country music superstar with charm and humility – and along the way met the woman who stole his heart. While Troy’s path to success wasn’t always smooth, his irrepressible nature and determination ensured what others might have seen as obstacles didn’t slow him down. Instead, they made him who he is today.
With a dry wit and generous heart, in Things I Carry Around Troy Cassar-Daley at last tells the story his fans have been waiting to hear. His own.
