Lee Kernaghan is Australia’s most loved country music identity and an outback icon. He 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 Australian’s living and working on the land.

2022 marks the anniversary of the release of Lee’s classic debut album The Outback Club. To celebrate this incredible milestone with his fans Lee will release a special 3-CD, 62 song set that documents three decades of dedication to his craft – a decade per CD –  a journey which has ensured Lee remains one of the biggest names in Australian country music.

Curated by Lee himself, “The Very Best of Lee Kernaghan – Three Decades of Hits”, was released on January 14, 2022.

With 13 Studio albums and 3 Greatest Hits packages under his belt, Lee has sold over two million albums in Australia from his amazing catalogue of albums: The Outback Club, Three Chain Road, 1959, Hat Town, Rules Of The Road, The Big Ones,  Electric Rodeo, The New Bush, Ultimate Hits, Spirit Of The Bush, Planet Country, Beautiful Noise, Spirit Of The Anzacs, 25th Anniversary Album and Backroad Nation all achieving gold, 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 based on the success of Spirit Of The Anzacs which was the highest selling Australian album of the year – a feat no other country artist has achieved. In 2017 Lee was named alongside the all-time greats of Australian Country Music with his inclusion into the Australian Country Music Roll Of Renown for his lasting and significant contribution to country music, and in 2018 he was was inducted into into the CMC Hall of Fame. Lee also received the CMC/ARIA Award for Highest Selling Australian Album of 2018 for his 25th Anniversary Album.

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

Lee has achieved a staggering 40 #1 chart hit songs over his career and has been awarded 37 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.

Lee will be releasing multiple products in 2022 in celebration of his Thirtieth Anniversary Year. One of these releases will be a new studio album slated for the second half of the year. The new album will be followed by a massive tour that will cover the length and breadth of our great nation.
