Media Release April 9 2021 - Dust Beneath My Boots feat. Tania Kernaghan

9 Apr


‘Dust Beneath My Boots’, the new single from Jason Lee was co-written with Chicago-based songwriter Timothy Gleason; with more of the songwriter’s work featuring on Jason’s upcoming album. The track was recorded at Hillbilly Hut Studios with long-time producer Simon Johnson and production credits are shared by both Jason and Simon. Early into the recording process, Jason knew this song needed to be a duet and as fate would have it, Tania Kernaghan instantly agreed.

When asked about his new single, Jason reflects “When I first heard it, it reminded me of a time when I just wanted to run away from the world and feel some dirt and dust on the soles of my feet and feel at peace with no noise and fresh air. A few years ago, I suffered with my mental health and this is how I reconnected with the world. As a child I could never stay still or be in one place for too long and the city is so fast paced and when I’m out in the country or on the road I just feel at peace and relaxed. Being out in the open air and countryside is an amazing feeling of difference - emotionally, psychologically, and physically. It somehow just slows you down and allows you to breath. And that’s exactly where and what this track is about”.

The Golden Guitar nominated artist cites legends Merle Haggard, Slim Dusty and George Jones through to current country music kings Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Jason Aldean as his musical heroes. Enjoying his own success on the live music scene, Jason has performed at the Gympie Music Muster, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, and opening shows for some of Australia’s much-loved artists including The McClymonts, Travis Collins and The Sunny Cowgirls.

The Academy Of Country Music graduate has been playing guitar since the age of 9, scored his first talent quest win at just 12 years old and released his self-titled debut EP in 2008. Subsequent single releases all found chart success including ‘A Memory’ remaining in the #1 spot on Hot Country Queensland for 3x weeks and Top 10 on the KIX Country Hottest 20; ‘Up A Creek’ - #1 on Hot country Queensland for 6x weeks, #6 on Country Songs Top 40 Australia Airplay Chart and Top 10 on KIX Country Hottest 20. ‘Dust Beneath My Boots’ is the 3rd single from the forthcoming album, following on from 2020 releases, ‘She’s In It’ in August and ‘Whiskey Kinda Night’ in November.
