Orange Blossom Festival attendees can expect big things from country singer Lee Kernaghan when he brings his new show to the Sydney Hills on Sunday 27th August.
Performing as part of the much anticipated ZESTFest, the four-time Aria award winning artist will be giving audiences a taste of his greatest hits during his only Sydney performance in 2017.
“Playing live is something I love doing and I am so grateful to be able to take my music into all the amazing towns and cities around Australia,” Kernaghan said.
This year has been a massive year for the singer-songwriter, with Kernaghan having been inducted into the CMC Hall of Fame in March.
The 53-year-old said he was extremely grateful and proud to have received such a high honour.
“I have not done all this on my own. There has always been a great team working with me and I owe so much to them all and to the fans who have stuck with me all this time,” the singer said.
But the celebrations haven’t stopped there for the popular hitmaker.
Kernaghan is also celebrating 25 years in the music industry and has done this with the release of his 25th Anniversary Album.
The album sees Kernaghan joined in studio with some of Australia’s finest Country acts including John Williamson, Troy Cassar-Daley, James Blundell, The Wolfe Brothers, Adam Brand and many more.
Every song on this album has a true and strong connection to the country singer’s 25 year musical journey; whether it be a new song written for the record, or a cover of a previously released song by Kernaghan or another artist.
The singer said one of the highlights of the 25th Anniversary Album was the opportunity to work with his wife Robby – another gifted singer.
“I am a bit biased but Robby is an amazing singer and artist in her own right,” Kernaghan said.
After selling two million albums in Australia, having 34 number one hits and winning 36 Golden Guitar awards, Kernaghan’s success in the country music industry is definitely undeniable.
The modest performer says he owes his success to his rural upbringing.
“I have been fortunate with having a wonderful family who taught us kids values and lessons that have stuck with us. I just try to do the right thing by people,” Kernaghan said.
