Australian country star James Blundell moving into politics

Australian country star James Blundell is set to run for a senate seat in the country’s upcoming election. The singer has announced he is moving into politics and will represent Bob Katter’s Australian Party for the Queensland region when the country goes to the polls in September (13).
Blundell says of his career change, “My music has always been my outlet but I just feel that there is such profound public fatigue with party political processes, that it would help for the community to hear some independent thinking.”
However, he admits the world of politics is “pretty daunting.”
The 2013 Australian federal election takes place on 14 September (13).
