Offaly's Simon Casey had the honour of performing the song 'Love Me' in his local pub in his home village for the American Country Music legend who wrote the song.
Max T Barnes obviously enjoyed the excellent performance in Gussie's with the locals and he has so fallen in love with Ireland that he has decided to spend the festive period in Simon's home village of Ballycumber.
In the post on Facebook, Simon comments, "You can't beat a good singsong down at your local with friends and family and to have the writer of 'Love, Me' Max T Barnes present and enjoying a few pints made it all the more special. Thanks to Gussies Ballycumber for a great night of craic and song."
It really is an excellent performance and is one you will find yourself listening to over and over again.
