Boy From the Bush - Lee Kernaghan with Colin Buchanan
‘This is my story. These are my songs.’

‘We work the land
Through fire and flood
It’s in our hearts
It runs in the blood’

Lee Kernaghan is ‘The Boy from the Bush’, an iconic star and 2008 Australian of the Year whose music has shaped a generation of country music fans. For the first time, Lee steps off the stage and invites you behind the scenes, into the Ute and over the rutted red dirt, on a rollicking journey through his songs and the stories that inspired them.

In a plot with more twists than the Gwydir River, Lee bounces from a disastrous caravan-obliterating encounter on Nine Mile Hill to the triumph of the Star Maker stage, from his infamous teenage rrock’n’roll-fuelled Albury High lunchtime music-room invasion to the frenzy of the Deniliquin Ute Muster. He shares the doubts that nearly ended his career before it began and the heartache of the bush in crisis, and reveals the secrets behind scorers of his hit songs. It’s a tapestry of yarns that will fascinate, amuse and entertain diehard fan and newcomer alike.

She’s My Ute, The Outback Club, Hat Town, Planet Country - Lee’s hits have earned him 33 Golden Guitars and 3 ARIA Awards, climbed to the top of the Aussie charts 32 times and propelled over 2 million albums off the shelves and into the lives of everyday Australians. Now the songs that celebrate the life and times of our rural heart take on a whole new dimension as Lee draws us into his confidence, into the studio, onto the tour bus and up the hill to his hidden songwriting shack, along the way initiating readers into fully fledged membership of the Outback Club.

A unique memoir for everyone, Lee Kernaghan’s Boy from the Bush is an affectionate, inspiring and unforgettable montage of characters, conquests and calamities that tumble from the real-life adventures of an Australian legend.
