My Country Life - Episode 9: Nathan Carter
Liverpool-born of Irish descent, Nathan Carter has become a country music superstar in Ireland – having shot to fame with a song called Wagon Wheel.
He’s the biggest music sensation on the country scene since Daniel O’Donnell first made an impact in the 1980s.
Here, in My Country Life, Nathan takes us on a journey through his life growing up in Liverpool and his childhood holidays based around the Fleadh Cheoils in Ireland.
He recalls his appearance on BBC’s Top Of The Pops and his early performances supporting Irish country stars such as Big Tom, Mike Denver and Jimmy Buckley.
Nathan tells about working on the buildings with his father and pays tribute to the powerhouse woman behind his early success – his grannie Ann McCoy.
He also recalls the shock of losing his friend and mentor Nicky James, and reveals why he’s in no hurry to settle down and become a dad.
