The Buy from the Bush phenomenon reviving retail in drought-hit communities is taking a tuneful twist.
Singer-songwriter and farmer Greg Storer of Warren has penned a track inspired by the social media campaign that has more than 116,000 followers.
The country artist teamed up with vocalist and Sydneysider Anna Clark to record the song.
They spent a day in a Leichhardt studio last week, ahead of Storer performing with his sister, ARIA winner Sara Storer.
Storer and Clark, along with Buy from the Bush founder Grace Brennan of the Warren district, are keenly awaiting the finished product.
A "teaser", put together by Susanne Messara from Picket Fence Productions, has been posted on the Buy from the Bush Facebook page.
Storer, who released his debut album in 2010, said Mrs Brennan had contacted him about a song for the campaign, pressing play on the process.
"So I had a couple of attempts and came up with something in the end I hope will be all right," he said.
"Grace emphasised the city-bush connection, so hopefully that's in the song... and just the Buy from the Bush theme to help get a little bit of a flush of money through rural businesses and help out for Christmas," he said.
The farmer dealing with the persistent dry weather praised the Buy from the Bush campaign for the boost it was giving towns affected by the drought.
"Just talking to a few people I know in Warren, they were pretty close to closing their doors, just little businesses in Warren, and that's just rejuvenated them for the Christmas break," he said.
"It's just a fantastic idea from Grace, some practical help, to help out in this dry time.
"It was a pleasure to write a song for the cause, actually."
The song is also close to the heart of Clark, whose sister is Mrs Brennan.
"Grace had the idea, she's always wanting Greg and I to sing together," she said.
"So we've had the odd song around the campfire when I've been in Warren or whatever, but this was a way of, in her mind, bringing country and city together, which was the whole idea behind Buy from the Bush as well."
Clark said the response to Buy from the Bush had been "unbelievable".
"I think that it's such a wonderful, that people in the city have been sitting here wondering how on earth we could help," she said.
"And having a direct contact with Grace and Jack in Warren, seeing the devastation, seeing the dust storms every day, and thinking to ourselves we can't send water, we can't help.
"But this is just such a wonderful way of us being able to help pour money into the communities, which of course has an amazing flow-on effect to everyone in the area, and lifts their spirits.
"And just the contact, on the phone, or a message with a little country shop, having a gorgeous conversation about what we can buy or what we need, and they're all so friendly and helpful.
"It's just really lovely.
"I think it reinforces the idea that we're all in it together, it's not city versus country, it's us all, you know Australians always want to support each other and this is an amazing way to do it."
