Former Nu Country TV guest host Cameron Cusack explores skeletons and broken hearts after his video character hit the bottle after losing in love.
Cameron hosted Nu Country when he lived at Merimbula on the NSW Sapphire Coast where he was discovered by former Nu Country producer Peter Staubli.

Cameron, now, 32, lives at Palm Cove north of Cairns in Queensland - and shot previous video at nearby Ellis Beach.
Cusack hooked fisherwoman femme fatale Sam McGown, also from hometown Merimbula, in his video.
“The blonde woman fishing and drinking beer was a backpacker in Cairns we found,” Cusack revealed.
“Her name is Kayla Striegler. The brunette girl fishing and at the end is my better half. The director was a Cairns local, Kyle Wilson who was also very easy to work with!”
Cusack's band comprises drummer Mitchell Steele, bassist Callan Barnes and guitarist Chris McKelvie.
Skeletons & Broken Hearts follows Cameron's second album Postcards To Marli , 2011 indie debut album Wasting Time and 2013 EP Cars And Guitars.
RICH WEBB FINDS BLUE WILDFLOWERS WAY OUT WEST
Expat Scot and long-time Melbourne singer-songwriter Rich Webb takes viewers on a joyous journey to Western Victoria.
Rich visited Sea Lake , Birchip, Dimboola, Lake Tyrell and many locales on his three day road trip way out west.
Blue Wildflowers is third single on his seventh album Right , released on December 9.
Webb teamed with friends Matthew Lawes-Wickwar and Louis C Brandt to film his video with his family and crew to celebrate beauty of country Victoria.
“The idea was simple - a road trip into country Victoria for three days - and to film whatever we fancied along the way,” Webb revealed.
“Louis jumped in a hire car with me and a load of camera equipment, and my partner Emma and our two boys jumped in our car and we set off. It ended up being the most amazing trip - a hell of a lot of fun, some stunning images, an absolute pleasure to get out of town and everyone we met along the way was so positive and upbeat. I came back full of that positivity and just pleased we'd got out there for three days - it's such a wonderfully beautiful and intense country we live in. There were two real highlights - Lake Tyrrell at dawn, an inland salt-lake in the Mallee part of north-west Victoria, which was cosmically beautiful - that's where the surreal pink-tinged footage came from in the middle of the clip, it was quite an amazing experience and The Victoria Hotel in Dimboola which was a totally rad place to stay - that's where the back end of the video was shot. Wow, it's beautiful out there!”.
Webb also revealed the song source.
“It's in many ways an apology song - to a few people broadly, but one lovely person in particular that I didn't treat as well as I should have done,” Webb explained.
Webb previously fronted our show with refugee video Love Someone - his sixth solo album title track.
He guested with saxophonist son Henry, another son Alfred and wife Emma in If You Were To Go from 1998 album The Girl Who Laughed Too Much that was remastered and re-released in 2019.

SIERRA FERRELL HEADS TO CHURCH
West Virginian Sierra Ferrell headed to her church of choice on her Nu Country return.
Sierra, 33, played two Out On The Weekend festivals on the dock of the bay at Steamworks in Williamstown.
This time she headed to Treehouse chapel in Nashville.
Sierra says her Bells Of Every Chapel video was inspired by late Queen Elizabeth in Crown TV series and one of 12 songs she wrote for debut album Long Time Coming produced by Australian indie musician Stu Hibberd and 10-time Grammy winner Gary Paczosa.
Ferrell rose from busking to hit writing and previously fronted Nu Country with her In Dreams video filmed at the Sacred Dog Farm in Fairview, Tennessee.
Her album was recorded at Nashville 's Southern Ground and Minutia studios and features Billy Strings, Dennis Crouch, Jerry Douglas, Rory Hoffman, Jedd Hughes, Sarah Jarosz, Julie Lee, Justin Moses, Tim O'Brien and Chris Scruggs.
Ferrell performed in a local bar aged seven.
Chance encounters with nomadic musicians inspired her to leave home in her early twenties and join them in their cross country journey playing everywhere from freight train boxcars to truck stops.
After busking on Seattle and New Orleans streets she moved to Nashville and signed to Rounder in 2019.
