Lee Kernaghan - Burnie
Since barnstorming his way onto the country music charts with the mega hit “Boys From The Bush” Lee Kernaghan has notched up 31 #1 hits on the Australian Country Charts
In 2012 Kernaghan headed back into the studio to record his 10th studio album, “Beautiful Noise”. He was not prepared to rest on his laurels when it came time to offer his legion of fans something new. The latest album has a giant beating country heart and an innovative approach to the music production.
Lee said, “The title track 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 as you hold her close…- It’s a Beautiful Noise!.”
“We also brought a new approach to the recording process, layering programmed parts with the live musicians. Most songs are written with just a guitar or a piano so to start recording as simply as that felt a lot more organic and helped us capture the spirit of the song. There are a number of rules you follow when making a country record and I reckon we broke most of them in making this album. We just let the songs go where they wanted to go. Some tracks, like “Splash” and “Flying with the King” were recorded the traditional way and sound pretty much the way they were played in the studio. On others like “Ute Me”, “Dirt Music” and “It’s Only Country”, there are elements of hip-hop, rock, pop, dance all wrapped up into this thing called country.
