Lee Kernaghan Launches His Ultimate Hits Package


With a whole lot of help from his friends!

Kernaghan fans select the top 42 hits and get invited to be a part of LK music history!

On September 30, Lee Kernaghan's Ultimate Hits will be released through ABC Music/Universal Music Australia, marking a major milestone in a music career that has produced 30 #1 chart hits and record sales approaching 2,000,000 units in Australia alone.

Kernaghan invited his fans on the internet and social media phenomenon Facebook to help him select the top 42 hits of his career and the response almost sent his site into meltdown.

"it was just awesome to get all the feedback. I have been through each suggestion individually and it has made all the difference in putting the songs together for this double CD release," says Kernaghan.

The Ultimate Hits will capture Lee's entire musical journey from his debut ARIA Award winning The Outback Club album (1992) right through to his latest Golden Guitar award winning album, Planet Country.

At the age of 27, Kernaghan exploded onto the Australian music scene with a new brand of rural rock that redefined contemporary country music in Australia. His music was undeniably country but Kernaghan had learnt how to rock in the pubs and clubs of regional NSW. His music cut through to a younger generation of Australians and paved the way for an unprecedented string of hits that has made him one of Australia's most loved artists.

The story of Lee's contribution to Australia and its communities has been well documented. His relationship with his fans is legendary with countless stories of him staying after shows, sometimes til sunrise, to meet and greet the legions of loyal fans that Lee calls his friends. Lee said, "It's my mates out there that have put these songs on the map. The people who have come out to the shows, bought the records and made these songs a part of the soundtrack of their lives. This is the part of being in music that pulls on my heart the most and makes all the highs and lows worthwhile."

To celebrate the national launch of the Ultimate Hits - Lee Kernaghan, ABC Music and Universal Music Australia invite you to be a part of this historic release.

Simply pre-order your copy of Lee Kernaghan's Ultimate Hits before the 14th of August and you will receive the album, delivered to your house, on the day of release, with your name included in the CD booklet!

Your Double CD will be personally signed by Lee and your name will be printed inside the Ultimate Hits booklet. You then become an official and documented part of Lee Kernaghan's amazing career - a part of Lee's musical history!
