We have some fantastic new Summer tunes from my favourite Irish Country music stars. I’m waking up each morning humming one of these, the tunes are so catchy and the video’s are excellent.
First up is the lovely John McNicholl with his song “The Brightest Road” written by Derek Ryan. I was lucky enough that on the release day, June 22nd, when it was number one in the Irish country charts and number five here in the UK country charts, to hear it performed live as John was appearing in Birmingham that evening. It was like a huge party at the dance as we all celebrated the single being number one. So proud of John and happy for him to reach the number one spot, a fantastic song.
Next up is Michael English with his summer tune “Then it’s Love”, I absolutely love this. Unfortunately Michael didn’t sing this one at the concert I attended at the end of April (that’s another blog post I need to do), the video is very summer like. I find myself singing this one almost all day long, I really need to learn more of the lyrics though than just the chorus, I’m driving folk crazy repeating the same thing over and over 🙂
Derek Ryan just keeps rocking out those hits, here he is with another country/pop type of tune “Hayley Jo” which has got folk dancing up and down the country, he really is just pure class. I really like this one, I just can’t work out who is Hayley Jo in the video?
My last selection for today is from our homegrown, Irish country music superstar Nathan Carter. Self penned with his singer/songwriting manager John Farry “Give it to Me” is a sure fire summer hit for Nathan. Great song, fun video and Nathan Carter, what’s not to love?!!!
I hope you have enjoyed these fab four summer hits from some of my favourite Irish music stars. I have a few more to share which I will leave for a future post.
With love and music sparkles xx
