AGE has done little to weary singer Ron Peters' enthusiasm and indeed voice for country music.
Mr Peters, who turned 91 in March, is still a regular on country music circuits and enjoys performing his tunes.
"Most people when they get old their voice gets old with them," Mr Peters said.
"But my voice hasn't.
"Most people say that my voice is better than it ever was."
Warm honey and red wine are sometimes associated with strengthening vocal chords, but Mr Peters said the reason behind his longevity remained a mystery.
"All I know is that it just hasn't changed, and I am so pleased about that," he said.
Mr Peters was born in Boonah on March 4, 1921.
As a youngster he enjoyed country music and after he finished primary school, a simple invitation came to tour the nation and his dreams came true.
"I met up with Jack Gill who had a travelling rodeo show," he said.
"He said, 'how about touring with me'.
"Well, he didn't have to ask twice."
For many years, Mr Peters travelled the country, gaining inspiration for his songs.
One of which, called Out on the Warrego, was used by Charleville radio station 4VL as their theme song for 20 years.
But despite his repertoire of stories from the "good, old days", Mr Peters is not one to dwell on the past.
Instead the passionate country musician likes to promote up and coming talents.
"Some of the new stuff is great," Mr Peters said.
"There are a lot of singers out there now doing great things."
Mr Peters paid special tribute to friend and fellow performer Pete Smith of Brisbane.
"He is very good friend of mine. He has a wonderful voice and is terrific songwriter."
Mr Peters will perform at the Cambooya Bowls Club on Sunday, December 9 from 1pm-5pm.
Other artists will include Ray Cullen, Kevin Ward, Tony Gyemore, Jason and Lorrae Charles and Adrian Cann.
