When you play country music, you've got to connect with your legion fans in the hinterlands.
The McClymonts have mined a rich vein in that territory with three albums and eight Golden Guitar awards in seven years. This week they went back to work, launching their fourth album and hitting the road for 19 dates with more to come.
The three sisters (Brooke, Sam and Mollie) were always into country music. Influenced by their parents' country music tastes, they grew up to sounds like Dolly Parton, Dixie Chicks, Jane Saunders, Shanley Del and the Judds.
Brooke, the oldest of the three, was the organiser and lead singer.
"I was the annoying kid who put on concerts in the backyard and charged money," Brooke says. "There were a lot of country music quests, it was thriving.
"We've always loved music, always loved singing," Brooke says.
Brooke won her first music trophy in 1992 at age 11. She was signed to a recording contract in 1997. The trio made their first album together in 2007 and haven't looked back.
"I don't think we knew it was a job. It was more of a hobby that turned into something we could do," Mollie says.
It's hard to believe the new album, Here's to You & I, released yesterday, is the first by the group made entirely in Australia.
"We had a timeframe and I had a daughter [Tiggy]," Brooke says. "To go away [to Nashville] wasn't feasible."
But there is no sign of disappointment, with the group joining forces with successful Australian producer Lindsay Rimes.
"His feel is a little different," Sam says.
Already they've scored a No. 1 hit off the album on country airplay charts with Going Under, co-written and produced by Rimes.
The sisters began writing for the album in 2013, on the heels of 2012's Two World Collide, which won Best Country Album at the ARIAs.
"This one means so much to us," Mollie says. "Every single song comes from the heart. Everything we wrote about, we've been through."
The sound is bigger, more commercial and that most likely means it will be more successful. The hooks are catchy and easy, and sexy. There's a country party on the title song, a hard rocking edge on Same Kind, a blues groove to Lay Some Love and their signature vocal harmonies in several other places.
The album was recorded in Studio 301 in Sydney, with some work being done in Brooke's music "shed" on the Central Coast. The home studio is no doubt a hive of musical creativity: her partner, Adam Eckersley, launched his first album this year, a potent chunk of original country rock.
For the McClymonts, their career is a gift they do not take for granted.
The days of dreaming in the backyard in Grafton of becoming famous country singers are long gone. They really are those famous singers now.
The McClymonts play Cessnock Leagues Club on July 10, Belmont 16-footers on July 11 and Wests Nelson Bay Diggers on July 12.
