Flying With The King - Buy on iTunes: http://itun.es/i6xq7KK Lee Kernaghan - Flying With The King. Tribute to Slim Dusty. From the album "Beautiful Noise" through ABC Music / Universal Music Australia. Video produced by Filmery. http://www.leekernaghan.com http://www.abcmusic.com.au The music video for 'Flying With The King' was created by highly acclaimed Director Duncan Toombs and features Lee on piano, 12 year old Flethcer Pillon (who plays a young Lee), and rare archival footage from the original Slim Dusty movie. Lee said, "It was back in the late nineties. I was booked to fly from Sydney to Perth to play a Festival in Mandurah WA the next day. I boarded the flight and as I got to my seat I realised I would be sitting next to the King of Country, Slim Dusty. For the next 5 or 6 hours we flew across Australia together. The memories of that flight will stay with me forever and now they've been turned into a song on the Beautiful Noise album." When I saw Duncan's edit of the video it brought back a lot of emotion to the surface and I think a lot of people will feel that way when they see the video. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Slim. Through the life he lived and the music he made, Slim became a part of the fabric of our society.In so many ways he was Australia," says Lee Kernaghan.
