Nathan Carter 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 three number one albums following his two number one singles and two number one live DVDs, elevating him to household name status.
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 and is coming to Stranraer’s Ryan Centre on April 10.
BBC1’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 “ ( release date April 29th ).
The release falls midway through his sell out UK tour (dates below ) and is preceded by a new Nathan single, a paen to the streets of Dublin’s party district - “Temple Bar “.
His single release of the Bob Dylan song “Wagon Wheel” hit the number one spot in the Irish charts. His next two albums also hit the number one spot, and he signed to Decca Records,
