ONE of the biggest voices of Australian country music, Lee Kernaghan, will visit Kingaroy in October as part of his national 25th anniversary tour.

Mr Kernghan will take his hat off at the Kingaroy Town Hall on October 29.

Earlier this year Mr Kernaghan celebrated the Silver Anniversary of his ARIA award winning debut album, Outback Club (1992), with The 25th Anniversary Album.

"What a wild, crazy, incredible ride it has been,” Mr Kernaghan said in a statement.

"It doesn't seem that long ago I was doing solo shows down in the Riverina, towing a horse float that I used as a band trailer with all my music equipment rattling around in the back.

"Looking back now I feel so grateful for all the experiences that have led me to this point and all the legendary people who have come out to the shows and joined me on this ride of a lifetime.”

Mr Kernaghan will be supported by Tasmanian country rock band the Wolfe Brothers, were the runners up in the 2012 season of Australia's Got Talent.

Lee Kernaghan Boys from the Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is on at the Kingaroy Town Hall on October 29.
