Country music’s brightest Nathan Carter, star returns to rock the INEC Killarney this New Year’s Eve.
He is the most successful live act across the venues of Ireland at this moment in time. He hasn’t done badly in the national sales charts either , with 3 number one albums following his 2 number one singles , and 2 number one live DVD’s , elevating him to household name status .
He may be only 25, but his life as a singer and musician started early. His traditional roots were in the blood, but he also grew up in a house where Country and Western music filled the air , his parents (and his ‘Nan ‘)filled the young boy’s head with the great songs of Johnny Cash , Waylon Jennings , Don Williams and Dolly Parton .
Like Bob Dylan’s ‘Never Ending Tour ‘ , Nathan was jumping out on stage every week for over 3 years from the head to the heal of Ireland , when almost from nowhere , at least to the Irish national media , his single release of the Bob Dylan song “Wagon Wheel” hit the number one spot in the Irish charts . The secret was out , and Nathan rapidly moved from the dance halls to the city halls , with live audiences of 2 – 5,000 fans .
He is acknowledged as the catalyst to the rebirth of popularity of Country Music in Ireland , and the dance craze that has swept the country . BBC 1’s The One Show made a special feature on Nathan and the dance craze he inspired , and RTE TV gave him his own TV programme , “The Nathan Carter Show“ at Christmas , 2015 , which when aired received one of the highest national audience viewing figures of 2015 (600,000 viewers).
Which brings us to 2016 and the upcoming release of Nathan’s first UK album of new songs , many which are self penned , entitled “Stayin’ Up All Night “
Don’t miss what is guaranteed to be a fantastic night with one of Ireland’s leading stars.
