Australian Country legend Slim Dusty has cranked up 1000 weeks on the ARIA Country Albums Chart with ‘The Very Best of Slim Dusty’.

1000 weeks in over 19 years on the chart. The album was originally released in 1998.

“It’s a wonderful feeling to see that Slim’s voice and songs are still so loved by Australian listeners,” says Joy McKean, Slim’s wife, manager and the writer of so many of his most enduring songs. “The Very Best Of collection is representative of Slim’s most popular and best performances and I’m incredibly proud to see his legacy living on.”

Slim Dusty is the longest act signed to EMI Records. He was also the first artist in the world to record 100 consecutive albums for the same label. He was the first Australian to receive a Gold record, the first Australian to have an International hit (Pub With No Beer), he has also had stamps and coins minted in his honour.

John O’Donnell, Managing Director of EMI Music Australia, said, “Slim is a national hero and the rock upon which we built EMI Australia. Our relationship spans 70-plus years and over 100 albums. We will forever be indebted to Slim for his music, his mateship, and the way he took his music and his storytelling to every corner of this nation. For all of us at EMI, it is a privilege and honour to represent Slim’s great body of work.”

Dan Rosen, Chief Executive, ARIA, said today, “ARIA would like to congratulate the late ARIA Hall Of Famer Slim Dusty on this amazing achievement.
