There could be a new Irish country music star on the way very soon, and his name is Owen Mac.
The youngster is taking YouTube by storm with his stunning voice and fantastic performances of several popular Irish songs.
Owen is from Coleraine, Northern Ireland and has been singing his entire life, and was just 14 when his videos started to go viral on social media.
He says on his Facebook page: “My biggest musical influences as I was growing up were Jimmy Buckley, Derek Ryan, Gene Watson, Rascal Flatts and of course my biggest was my Dad who was always there to encourage and advise me.
“My first and foremost type of music is definitely country, should it be Irish, American or contemporary. I can appreciate all types of music but – personally for me to sing – I like the country style.
“My Mum and Dad inspire me so much to do my music as I can see they get as much pleasure from listening to me as I get from singing it, and also the public who listen to my music – when they give me lovely compliments its very encouraging and inspires me to keep going knowing people enjoy what I do.”
It is little surprise that Owen’s is enjoying such success online, once you have listened to him sing you will see why.
