Jon Stevens is the latest Australian act to release music for drought-stricken farmers.

This morning he announced that the charity single Rain Down On Me hits radio on Friday, October 26, with all proceeds going to Rural Aid

Stevens, who grew up in a farming community in New Zealand, says, “I thought, why not give the song to them and see if they can make some money from it.

“That is what you do, you try and help in any way, so I went in and recorded it.

“My mum grew up on a farm, it is still in my family. This is a song for you, from me.”

Rain Down On Me was written in LA earlier this year about coping with adversity, it can be pre-ordered on via Stevens website.

Stevens, currently on the road in regional areas on a Best Of tour, is also one of the acts on the Hay Mate: Buy a Bale â€" A Concert For The Farmers will take place this Saturday, October 27 at Tamworth’s Scully Park.

Sony Music Entertainment Australia chairman and CEO, Denis Handlin AO says, “I know everyone in Australia shares deep concern for the plight of our farmers and rural communities, who are the very backbone of Australia.

“As Australians, we can be proud of our inherent values of mateship and lending a helping hand wherever possible. I encourage you to get behi nd this very worthy cause and help our rural communities suffering in this drought through the power of music.”
