Chad’s Documentary ‘I’m Not Dead Yet’ Is Now Released !!
BUY IT HERE…
“I’m Not Dead Yet” is an “unplugged” road movie which follows country music legend Chad Morgan and his wife Joanie as they travel and perform throughout regional and outback Australia. Affectionately narrated by rock musician Tex Perkins, the documentary is an intimate portrait of an artist as an old man. It’s a film about laughter, growing old and coming to terms with the past. At the heart of the narrative is an enduring love story. Back in “the day” Chad moved a lot faster than he does now. He was once an infamous drunk and womaniser – defiant, wild and unstoppable. But now Chad has found his soul mate – the droll, plain speaking Joanie. While Chad performs, “roadie Joanie” sells the CDs and merchandise.
Today Chad is the last country music legend standing. He has out-sung, out-drunk and outlived his famous contemporaries. When Slim Dusty died in 2003 the heavy title of country music’s “national treasure” was passed on to Chad. Chad’s moving performance of “Bill and Eva” makes time stand still. Fans have tears in their eyes as Chad explains the story behind the song. “You could tell it came from the heart. Chad’s not a fake,” says a fan reaching for her hankie.
Far more than just a cradle to the grave bio – pick, “I’m Not Dead Yet” is a road movie about laughter, love, romance, music and family. It also features a “handsome” leading man and a litany of dirty lyrics!

Chad has a new Support Act – “The Muirs”
Husband and wife team Glennys and Ian Muir originally from the Goulburn Valley and now based on the Gold Coast have been writing songs and performing together for a number of years. Their first public performance was at one of Ian’s shows at the Mildura CMF and the response was such that they decided to work up an act with some of their favourite old country tunes mixed with their own.
The Muirs came to the attention of the legendary Chad Morgan at one of his shows, and have since been touring the country as his support act. The Muirs have performed at all the major festivals and may soon be performing at a venue near you!!!. Look out for The Muirs at the next Chad Morgan Show.
