The big black Burrumbuttock Hay Runners rig will roll into the Deni Ute Muster to join 20,000-plus concert-goers for two days of country music magic this Friday and Saturday.
US sensation Tim McGraw will headline the 2019 festival along with Aussie stalwarts Lee Kernaghan, John Williamson, Beccy Cole and the Sunny Cowgirls.
Hay hero Brendan Farrell said commitments with his own farm and business unfortunately prevented him attending this year's Henty field days but the black trailer "was all organised" to set up shop at Deni for the 21st event on October 5 and 6.
Mr Farrell said he'd been off the radar a bit since the Canberra fundraising ball for the hay runners.
"It just won't rain ... crops are failing," he mused during a Facebook video update this week.
"So I'm just trying to mow and bale and keep a very close eye on things at the moment."
However "Bumpa" said he was looking forward to catching up with the "local boys" at Deniliquin as he had done for the past three years - "they're pretty mad but I suppose I was too when I was 20 to 25".
He added he was sure to be swagging it during the action-packed festival because, well, "I just love camping!"
On a serious note - and speaking of all things musical - Mr Farrell has also paid tribute to the "true talent" of songstress Sara Storer after the official release of her Hayrunner video clip.
He has urged Burrumbuttock Hay Runner supporters and Storer fans to get behind the song, and share it extensively on social media to highlight the plight of the nation's farmers crippled by drought and the work of volunteers.
"We would love all our followers to share this far and wide, help us spread the message of what we do and if nothing else bring a smile to a farmer's face because we sure as hell haven't forgotten them!" he had stated earlier.
The ARIA award-winning country star met up with "Bumpa" at his farm in August to film the video clip for Hayrunner.
