FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE

Lee Kernaghan – Boys From The Bush – 25th Anniversary TourThe year 2017 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), Lee is gearing up for what is set to be his biggest and most exciting tour ever.

The Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour will feature his classic hits, ballads and rural anthems that have won Lee 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 brilliant new 25th Anniversary album, set for release in March.

The national tour will be launched on Australia Day at the Toyota Tamworth Country Music Festival with a star-studded show at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Convention Centre. The concert promises to be an historic Tamworth event with Lee Kernaghan fans travelling from near and far to be a part of what is set to be a massive milestone year for Lee.

The national tour dates continue in April and run through to November 2017. Lee will be joined by a stellar line-up of special guests throughout the tour [see venue dates for details] 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 who will join Lee for the entire tour.

In addition to Lee’s anniversary tour dates, he is also scheduled to perform at some of the biggest country music events of the year. In March, he will share the CMC Rocks QLD stage with international superstars the Dixie Chicks. He will also headline at ‘the world’s most remote music concert’ the Big Red Bash near Birdsville in QLD in July, where he will perform to an estimated 7000-strong crowd. Joining Lee on stage will be special guests Troy Cassar-Daley, The McClymonts and James Blundell, in a unique and exclusive 25th anniversary event. Lee will also make a headline performance at the iconic Deni Ute Muster in September. In October Lee takes to the high seas with The McClymonts, John Williamson, Adam Harvey and a host of Australian music stars for Cruisin’ Country.

Lee Kernaghan’s Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is set to be an unforgettable concert experience, so book your tickets early and join the celebration of the epic career of one of this country’s all-time greats.

ABOUT LEE KERNAGHAN

Lee Kernaghan reinvigorated Australian Country Music in the 1990’s, synthesising traditional country themes with his own brand of rural rock and images of an evolving regional culture. 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 Lee released the epic work Spirit of The Anzacs, based on a collection of letters and diary records from Australian servicemen and women, some dating back to the landings at Gallipoli. On its release the album struck a chord with the Australian people holding the #1 position on the Australian ARIA Album Chart for four consecutive weeks. It was the highest selling album by an Australian artist (all genres) for 2015. All proceeds from The Spirit of The Anzacs song and music video featuring music greats Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Shepherd, Shannon Noll, Jon Stevens and Megan Washington are donated in perpetuity to veteran support groups – Legacy Australia and Soldier On.

Lee has sold over two million albums in Australia with releases including Outback Club, Three Chain Road, 1959, Hat Town, Rules Of The Road, Electric Rodeo, New Bush, Ultimate Hits, Spirit Of The Bush, Planet Country, Beautiful Noise and Spirit Of The Anzacs all achieving platinum or multi-platinum status. Lee is a four-time ARIA award-winning artist and in 2015 he was presented with the Australian Record Industry Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Lee has achieved a staggering 34 #1 chart hit songs over his career and has been awarded 36 Golden Guitars. He has been named Hit Maker of the Decade, twice, in 2001 and 2011. This accolade is in recognition of Lee having more chart hits in Australia than any other country music artist in the world.

Kernaghan is long-time and passionate supporter of rural and regional Australia. His Pass the Hat Around Australia Tours, Spirit of The Bush and Farmhand concerts have raised millions of dollars for drought, flood and bushfire relief, hospitals, schools, ambulance and volunteer organisations nation-wide. In 2004 Kernaghan was the recipient of an Order of Australia Medal and was named 2008 Australian of the Year.

Lee Kernaghan’s Boys from The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour launches in Tamworth on Australia Day with concerts covering the length and breadth of the nation throughout 2017.
