Even before his debut single hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Irish country chart, there was clearly something a little bit special about this Banagher man, because a legend like Tony Christie doesn't let just anyone open his shows. Let alone open two of them. But that's just what Colin did late last year.

Since then, his version of Keith Whitley's country classic has been winning him fans all over Ireland, with Colin also opening shows for Mike Denver, Robert Mizzell, Ciaran Rosney, The Fureys, and even the great Brendan Grace. Colin also made a special appearance at this year's Hot Country TV Awards Concert.

His second single, a rip-roaring rendition of Joe Dolan's 'You're Such A Good Looking Woman', has just been released, and Colin also performed for the first time on national television recently, as one of the featured artists on the TG4 show Feilte.
