THIS year brings new music, a national tour and a brand-new album from 36-time Golden Guitar winner Lee Kernaghan.
To celebrate the silver anniversary of his ARIA award-winning debut album, Outback Club (1992), Kernaghan is undertaking what will be one of his biggest tours to date.
The Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour will feature the classic hits, ballads and rural anthems that have won him a nationwide legion of fans that he prefers to call ‘mates’.
With 34 number one hits to his credit, the show is set to be a major celebration of Kernaghan’s career and will also feature special performances from his new 25th Anniversary album.
He will be joined by a stellar line-up of special guests throughout the tour including the legendary James Blundell, hit maker Tania Kernaghan, Best New Artist Golden Guitar Winner (2016) Christie Lamb and CMC award-winning artists The Wolfe Brothers.
Kernaghan reinvigorated Australian country music in the 1990s, synthesising traditional country themes with his own brand of rural rock.
Songs like The Outback Club, Boys from The Bush, Hat Town, She’s My Ute and Australian Boy are now modern day anthems for a generation of Australians living and working on the land.
In 2015, he released Spirit of the Anzacs, based on a collection of letters and diary records from Australian servicemen and women.
It was the highest selling album by an Australian artist for 2015.
All proceeds go in perpetuity to veteran support groups Legacy Australia and Soldier On.
