The 'Hard Work' Continues For McAlister Kemp With Their New Single


It’s been an amazing couple of months for Australia’s new country music super-duo McAlister Kemp.

They were recently voted ‘Best New Oz Artist’ by Australian country music fans at the CMC Music Awards. In January, they also won the Golden Guitar for ‘Best New Talent’ in the industry voted Country Music Awards of Australia.

In between those two achievements, McAlister Kemp were offered the opportunity to open for Alan Jackson and Jasmine Rae at sold out shows at Acer Arena (Sydney), Rod Laver Arena (Melbourne) and three Brisbane Entertainment Centre shows. They also had a huge #1 single and music video with ‘Hell Yeah’.

Lee Kernaghan then invited McAlister Kemp to perform on his Pubs, Clubs & Carparks Tour and their debut album, All Kinds Of Tough, recently re-entered the ARIA Country Charts Top #10 - fourteen months after release.

This June, McAlister Kemp will perform in Nashville for the very first time at the CMA Music Festival Global Artist Party - the world’s most prestigious global country music event - courtesy of a Commercial Radio Australia sponsorship.

‘Hard Work’ is McAlister Kemp’s fourth single from the All Kinds Of Tough album.

The up-tempo track has been a huge hit with fans at live shows and features Drew McAlister and Troy Kemp at their dynamic best.

Produced by Country Music Awards of Australia ‘Album of the Year’ winning producer Matt Fell, ‘Hard Work’ takes fans to the heart of what McAlister Kemp are all about… core values, real people and great music!

‘Hard Work’ is an anthem for the working man, the family man and most importantly the country music fan!

The sparks fly… literally… in the new ‘Hard Work’ music video, produced by Rusty Gate Films. Watch it now at
