Big is the third single from Matt Scullion’s chart topping album Aussie As. The song is about a road trip checking out all the BIG Things along the way. With more than 150 big things out there, Matt says there was plenty to sing about.
Matt is an Australiana singer–songwriter and is known in the industry as the songwriter to the stars, having his songs recorded by Lee Kernaghan, Sara Storer, Adam Harvey and Cold Chisel to name but a few, with twenty of those going to the number one spot on the country music charts.
Originally from Ulladulla, Matt says he remembers reading the small print on the back of records and realising at an early age the singer didn’t always write the song. He identified most with storytelling artists Tom T Hall and Kenny Rogers. When he first heard Cunnamulla Fella and Old Man Emu he says he was “hooked like a barra to a teaspoon lure”.
