Offaly barber cuts another chart-topping country single

Offaly barber cuts another chart-topping country single

Colin Kenny, ‘the singing barber’, has cut another #1 single in the country charts.

The weekend saw the Banagher man with plenty of reasons to break out the champagne as his new single, ‘I'm A Country Singer,' sailed straight to the top of the iTunes Irish country singles chart on release.

The single becomes the third #1 of his career, and the second time an original song has topped the charts for the Borrisokane based barber.

“It’s a brilliant feeling”, revealed Colin, “I couldn’t be happier right now. We premiered the song ‘live’ for the very first time back at the Ploughing Championships a few weeks ago and it got a great response and some lovely feedback from people. We played it again last week at the launch of Alex Roe’s debut album in The Well, and on both occasions, it had people out
on the dancefloor, which is exactly what you hope to see happening."

The track was also voted Song of the Week on Liam Kett’s show on KFM last week.

“Thankfully, it’s gone well, so it’s off to a good start anyway. It’s available to download from all digital platforms now, and it’ll be with all the radio stations very soon as well, so if anybody wants to request it, they’ll be able to do that, too.”

You can keep up to date with Colin's upcoming gigs on his Facebook page. 

“I have a couple of dates coming up with Mike Denver next month as well, something that’s always a pleasure and an honour for me, given that Mike is one of the men we all look up to in this business, so the new single will be getting a run out on those shows too.”

'I'm A Country Singer,’ the brand new single from Colin Kenny, is available NOW from all digital platforms, and to request from radio.
