David Gordon "Slim Dusty " Kirkpatrick, (13 June 1927—19 September 2003) was born in Kempsey, New South Wales. Kirkpatrick adopted the stage name "Slim Dusty" and started his music career when he was eleven. He was an Australian country music singer-songwriter and producer. He was known to record songs in the legacy of Australian poets Henry Lawson and Banjo Patterson that represented the Australian Bush Lifestyle, and also for his many trucking songs. Dusty was the first Australian to have a No. 1 Hit song with Gordon Parsons. Dusty married singer-songwriter Joy McKean in 1951, together the couple achieved great success around Australia.
"Joy McKean, singing cowgirl of record and radio fame. 'Princess Fire Cloud', in her tribal dagger dance of death".
