Lee Kernaghan Officially Releases The New Single 'Beautiful Noise'



Lee Kernaghan shook the very foundations of Australian country music back in 1992 with the release of his ARIA award-winning, The Outback Club.


20 years on and with 28 #1 hits to his credit, 10 Platinum or better releases and nearly 2 million album sales, Kernaghan is set to release what industry insiders are predicting will be another ground breaker ! 


‘Beautiful Noise’ is the title track and first single from Lee’s new album that will be released on 19th October. 


Kernaghan says…


“Beautiful Noise is a song about a red dirt dream, a big V8 and the promise of an open road. It’s also about having your girl there with you and the beating of her heart when you hold her close - it’s a Beautiful Noise!”


Kernaghan is clearly not prepared to rest on his laurels when it comes to offering his legion of fans something new. ‘Beautiful Noise’ has a giant beating country heart and an innovative approach to the music production unlike anything we have heard from him before.


The ‘Beautiful Noise’ single will be available to download from September 24th on iTunes.


The Beautiful Noise album is released on October 19 through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia and signed copies with a special bonus DVD featuring two performances from CMC Rocks The Hunter 2012 are available for pre-order via the Sanity, JB Hi-Fi, ABC Shop and GetMusic online retail stores. 


Lee Kernaghan will be touring in November with Dwight Yoakam. For all details on the tour go to
