He was mobbed by adoring fans in Dublin over the weekend and now it looks as though singer Shayne Ward is going to release an Irish country album.
According to reports, The X Factor winner revealed that he loved singing with Finbar Furey and Foster and Allen and that it might have inspired a new album.
“I’ve sung with Foster and Allen and Finbar Furey,” he revealed as he was promoting his new album Closer.
“I feel very blessed to sing with these people I’ve grown up with,” he continued, according to The Sunday World.
“I’ve always said in the future I’d like to do an Irish country album, which I’m sure would please my relatives no end.”
Shayne, whose parents are both Irish added that he doesn’t get to see his relatives here as “much as I’d like”.
“I know I’m going to be doing a few HMV signings, which is always great. I’d like to bring my mum over and some more of my family.”
“I’ve always been really welcomed in Ireland. I love it.”
Well it certainly seems like the Irish – at least the ladies – love him, as he was kissed, cuddled and adored in Dublin over the weekend, with many hoping to catch the eye of the 30-year-old single lad.
