Lee Kernaghan fans will be able to watch some of his live performances and excerpts from his life on the road in July when “Lee Kernaghan: Boy From The Bush” hits cinemas.
The film is billed as a part-concert film and part-road movie, showcasing “stunning local landscapes, remarkable people and amazing stories”.
It will be released theatrically in Australia by Maslow Entertainment and distributed by Universal Pictures Content Group. The team behind “Slim and I” is involved in the project, which will be directed by Kriv Stenders (“Slim and I” and “Red Dog”), and produced by Chris Brown (“Slim and I” and “The Proposition”) and Diana Le Dean (“Slim and I”).
Kernaghan is a celebrated country music star with a career spanning over three decades. He has won 37 Golden Guitar Awards, equalling the record of Slim Dusty. He’s also sold over 2.5 million albums and recorded 38 No. 1 songs.
“Lee has shaped a generation and made a huge impact on the country music scene both in Australia and around the world,” publicity for the film said.
Kernaghan said in the outback, he feels something you can’t feel anywhere else.
“It’s more than a setting, it’s a character in our shared story,” he said in the film’s trailer.
“But when you take a place, a person, a time, a story and wrap it up in words and music, that’s magic,” he added.
“Lee Kernaghan: Boy From The Bush” will also feature a brand new song.
