Lee Kernaghan

Lee Kernaghan OAM has been a staple in Australia's country music scene for decades and his championing of rural Australian life has seen him develop a strong community following across the country. His Pass The Hat Around Australia and Spirit Of The Bush tours raised millions for drought relief, farmers and country Australia. 

By Chelsea Heaney.

With several chart-topping albums backing up his first successful 1992 album Boys From The Bush, Kernaghan returns to Darwin for a one-off performance on the lawns at SKYCITY. Part of a nationwide tour that accompanies the release of his The 25th Anniversary Album, the tour commemorates two and a half decades since Kernaghan’s first number one single and the release of his debut album The Outback Club. He has since gone on to have 34 number one hits on the Australian country music charts and sell over two million albums in Australia. His blending of traditional American country music styles with an esoteric rural Australian flavour has cemented him as an icon in the industry. In 2015 Kernaghan released the epic Spirit of The Anzacs album, based on letters and diary records of Australian servicemen and women dating back to the landings at Gallipoli, with all earnings donated in perpetuity to veteran support groups.  

This outdoor show canvasses Kernaghan’s musical career and sees him joined by popular country music group The Wolfe Brothers, who rose to fame after featuring on Australia’s Got Talent in 2012. Following up with numerous hits on the country music charts, The Wolfe Brothers achieved four number one tracks from their album Nothing But Trouble.

It’s the first time Kernaghan has performed in the Top End in 10 years, so fans should get in quick to secure tickets if they haven’t all been snapped up already.
