Simon Peters 12 years from Newtowncunningham Donegal.
I wrote and recorded my first song when i was 9 years old. It was called (THE OFFALY ROVER) a tribute to one of my favourite irish country singers (JOHN HOGAN).
A few months later in January 2010 I got the opportunity to duet with John Hogan. We recorded Johns first big hit (BROWN EYES). This song was released on my first 4 track CD entitled (LIVING MY DREAM) which is also another song that i wrote.
In may 2010 i got introduced to the irish country music scene at the hot country awards (sky 201). Then in July 2010 I was asked to open the main stage at the country fest Letterkenny where I first met George Hamilton IV and he invited me to Nashville. Where I sang at the famous Midnight Jamboree live on W.S.M. Radio.
And I sang at the cowboy church with members of Johnny Cashes family. While in Nashville George Hamilton iv give me a private tour of the city including back stage at the grand ole opry.
I also recorded a Kenny Rogers song in Nashville (THE GAMBLER) with some of their finest musicians. Which i sang live on Irelands most watched program (THE LATE LATE TOY SHOW).
I have received a number of awards to date.
My current 15 track album is entitled Young Country which is another self-penned song.
I have just released my new 12 track dvd (IRELANDS COUNTRY KID) which you can see on hot country our on youtube.
I am currently in the studio working on a new album which should be ready in a few months.
