Country music stardom awaits

THE latest single from Strabane native Bryan Mullen is now blasting across radio stations throughout the country to rave reviews.

As Tyrone’s newest up and coming country singer, Bryan is definitely one to keep an eye on and his latest single ‘Even Cowgirls Get the Blues’ is proving to be a hot favourite amongst radio listeners. He now joins a very prestigious line-up of artists including Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings to record this country classic.

Although the Strabane man has been singing for the last 13 years he only recently transitioned into the country scene. It was following a successful win at the ‘Sounds Like Country’ competition held in Bundoran last year that Bryan was catapulted onto the country stage.

The illustrious prize for winning the annual singing competition was to record a single and an accompanying music video. It was after Bryan released his song ‘Someday You’ll Love Me’ that his country career really took off.

“Getting my music on the radio has always been something I wanted to do from day one and the competition last year gave me the opportunity to get started on that,” said Bryan.

“Once I put out my first single last October it has really worked its way on from there. Singing is more of an addiction now at this stage.”

But software engineer Bryan was no stranger to the country scene as his father also Bryan Mullen, was a drummer in country bands for 30 years, so it was always “in his blood”.
His latest single to drop has followed on from the highly successful previous recording ‘Don’t Breathe’, which went to number one on the iTunes Irish Country Chart and
received a great response across the country from DJ’s and listeners
alike.

Bryan’s forthcoming album ‘Someday You’ll Love Me’ named after his first single is set to be released in November. All 14 tracks have been recorded at Harmony Recording Studios in Letterkenny, and produced by Strabane native Brian Kerrigan.

“Brian has really guided me in the right direction and all this wouldn’t be possible without him,” added Bryan.

The album will feature some original Irish songs, some well known country classics and, according to Bryan, a “couple of surprises”.

• Bryan’s latest single ‘Even Cowgirls Get The Blues’ is available to download now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music.
