Influenced by her mother, she stared into the mirror as a child pretending to win a golden guitar award. Forty years later has racked up 11 of the prestigious awards.
She has the proud achievement of being the only artist to be the driving force behind a 100 per cent female produced album and have more than a dozen number one Australian country singles to her name.
Australian country music legend, Beccy Cole will round out summer with a much-anticipated live show in the Southern Highlands.

Growing up in South Australia, Beccy was acquainted with the Golden Guitar award at a young age but didn't think she'd ever hold one for herself.
"Did I think I would win 11? No, (laughs) I really didn't think I'd have any, I could only hope," Beccy said.
"One of my dear friends, who I consider like a second dad to me won one. He won it in 1979 and I remember as a kid looking at it with awe.
"When everyone would leave the room I would pretend to win it in the mirror. I just always knew I wanted to be on stage."
That was just the beginning of Beccy's rise to success. Her mother, Carole Sturtzel ignited the passion for music and performance within her, and she took that early insight to the music business to new heights.
"My mum was an incredibly talented musician," Beccy said.
"It was her job and she was so very good at it. Back then you could be a big fish in a small pond. Each state had their own TV show and mum was a regular on all of Adelaide's shows.
"I grew up watching her. At one point I thought everyone's mum was a singer. The path was already laid out for me.
"I was never pressured into music or the family business. I was just so inspired and impressed with it, I knew that's what I wanted to do."
With a privileged insight to the music business at such a young age, her process of making her own stardom was anything but. The music business was a tough road but she was stubborn until her name shone in lights.
In 1991 Beccy joined a country music group called Dead Ringer Band.
The band was led by Bill Chambers, father of Kasey Chambers. In 1992 Beccy and Kasey were busking together on the streets of Tamworth.
"Kasey is the person I have the most history with," Beccy said.
"She has sung on many of my records and we won a golden guitar together a few years ago."
From inspired beginnings to touring the world, Beccy has done it all and doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.
"I've played in Egypt with Gretel Killeen when we were entertaining the troops. I also toured when I was younger with Slim Dusty," Beccy said.
"I wouldn't have thought I'd be up for another golden guitar in my mid-40s. It's not something you expect or are striving for.
"My measure of success is longevity."

Beccy will be performing at the Robertson Public House and Kitchen on Thursday, February 21, 2019.
She said people could expect fun and a great time.
"I'll be playing songs off my new album 'Lioness' and a selection from my catalogue. All the best requested songs will be on my set list," she said.
"We have a lot of laughs, I've never taken myself too seriously. It's very musical and a lot of fun."
