Nathan Carter announces gig for Cork's Live at the Marquee next summer

Class.

Nathan Carter has announced a massive gig in Cork next summer.

The country music fiend will be hitting up the rebel county's Live at the Marquee on May 31, 2020.

He'll be joined on the night by support act, Brian Kennedy, for an evening filled with bangers, bodhráns, and other things that are also related to country music, probably.

This comes after Nathan recently released his tenth studio album Irish Heartland. 

It features collaborations with a number of artists including The High Kings, Finbar Furey, Cherish the Ladies and orchestral accompaniment from the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra.

Nathan's gig announcement comes a mere year after he was thrown out of a hotel for being too rowdy.

"We were a few shows into a Scottish tour and the gig the following day was only an hour away, so we all said 'we'll go back to the hotel after this show and have a few drinks,'' he said.

"When we got back to the hotel the bar had just closed. This particular hotel has a 'shush!' policy, which means you have to be quiet after a certain hour at night," he told the Sunday World.

"They said we could drink in reception, but then because we were making too much noise we were told to go to bed. Of course, once you've had a couple of drinks you're not going to go to bed.

"Nan, being the ringleader that she is, had brought her own gin and there were bottles of wine that people had given us at the gig as presents, so we had a good stash of alcohol."
