They say ‘you can’t keep a good man down’, well in the case of Australia’s country music legend Lee Kernaghan, it is more a matter of ‘you can’t stop the Boy from the Bush from flying’… Flying up the charts that is!

In an amazing first week ARIA Chart result Lee’s new album Backroad Nation scored an incredible: #3 ARIA ALL GENRE/MAIN Chart; #1 ARIA Digital Album Chart; #1 ARIA Australian Artist Chart; #1 ARIA Country Chart; and #1 ARIA Australian Country Chart. The epic new album is Kernaghan’s 15th studio album and was produced by Grammy nominated producer and songwriter, Lindsay Rimes (Kane Brown, Kylie Minogue. LoCash).

“Backroad Nation is a celebration of us, our way of life and the people who make our country great,” Lee says of the smash hit release. “Much of the inspiration for the songs has come from the people I’ve met and the places I’ve travelled to from Alice Springs to the Deni Ute Muster, from the mighty Pilbara region in WA to backroads QLD and everywhere in between.”

Lee says the Backroad Nation album has taken him to places that he hasn’t been before musically. “I’ve pushed every element of this record to the absolute limits and have collaborated with some of the finest writers and music makers in the world today,” he says. “This included ARIA Hall of Famer Garth Porter (Executive Producer); along with hit songwriters Colin Buchanan, Lindsay Rimes, Phil Barton and Nick Wolfe who all played an integral part in the song writing journey for this release. I love this album. Every song is a true story and telling it how it is and keeping it authentic was always my number one intention.”

Lee Kernaghan reinvigorated country music in the 1990s and he is still doing the same almost three decades later – creating modern day anthems for Australians everywhere.

Tickets to the Backroad Nation Tour are now all on sale. Lee’s new album Backroad Nation is out now through ABC Music.
