The lovely Denise Torenbeck produces this quality mag locally each quarter and I'm shamelessly plugging it on our blog because, to be frank, she deserves it.

Issue 64 has a stellar line up with write ups and interviews with Troy Cassar-Daley, John Williamson, Lionel Richie, Tim & Faith, Dan Murphy and a whole heap of others - including, I might add, Tracy Lawrence.

Tracy Lawrence is especially poignant for me because, barring one 'e', he shares my wife's full maiden name. ie Tracey Lawrence vs Tracy Lawrence.

As you can imagine, this created no end of confusion for my wife in her late teens, as it no doubt did for the big Texan.

Fortunately for everyone involved, after a touching ceremony eleven years ago, my wife became Tracey Devereaux. This freed the singer up to get about his business singing and I'm sure not being mistaken for a girl from Gympie was a weight off his shoulders.

Unfortunately, a Google search subsequently revealed my wife's new name was also that of an American stripper. On hearing this, Tracey was a mite horrified - she actually liked Tracy Lawrence's music and owned two CD's. It was unlikely she was going to feel the same connection with the 'dancer'. But I told her either way it's entertainment.

My tastes only dabble in country music (a bit of Glen Campbell, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Shania Twain) yet I still enjoy reading Country Update. If country floats your boat I can't see why you wouldn't want to take a look inside this magazine, so duck on over to Denise's website and see what it's all about - Country Update magazine

Available in good newsagencies across the country for a mere $7.95, or you can subscribe and save your horses.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
