From Moy to Melbourne and Limavady to London – Derek Ryan is Irish country music’s golden boy with chart topping albums, self-written smash hit singles, box office busting live tours and of course – an army of faithful fans around the world.
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.
Dozens of artists including evergreen multi-million selling star Daniel O'Donnell underlined the industry wide admiration for Derek's songwriting talents by recording versions of God's Plan. Since then, with a combination of terrific talent, admirable determination and a continuous desire to do better, Derek's career has kept on reaching progressively greater heights.<br>
