Derek Ryan has become one of country music’s leading entertainers and makes his highly anticipated return to Athlone for a performance of his self-penned hits along with a sprinkling of country classics. His shows contain music featured on his studio albums including God’s Plan, Life Is A River and Hold on to your Hat.
Derek’s rise to stardom on the country scene has been at a phenomenal rate, with few other country stars having made such an impact. With two Irish Number One albums, sell-out shows at home and abroad and fistfuls of music awards to his name including Entertainer Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Best Live Performer. But he is perhaps proudest of the award winning recognition for his songwriting abilities at the Sunday World and Irish Country Music Awards.
