artist lineup lee kernaghan

Lee Kernaghan reinvigorated Australian country music in the 1990s, synthesising traditional country themes with his own brand of rural rock and images of an evolving regional culture.

Songs including 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.

Lee has sold over two and a half million albums in Australia, is a four-time ARIA award winning artist and in 2015 was presented with the Australian Record Industry Award for Outstanding Achievement – a feat no other country artist has achieved.

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.

In 2017 Lee was inducted into the Australian Country Music Roll Of Renown and in 2018 was inducted 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.
