Notably in June 2017, Micks with Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) released a music video dedicated to The Whitsundays Region, recovering from Ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie. TEQ used the music video as a unique medium to showcase the beauty of the Whitsundays Region by choosing Micks’ large International based audience as a promotion tool. The video achieved enormous success by reaching #1 (Australia) and #7 (United States) on the iTunes ALL GENRES Music Video Charts, and winning “Best Video” at the Country People Choice Awards during the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 2018.
