Sarah Whiteacre writes:
In a night of unique performances, the show will kick off with the biggest opening number yet, featuring Daniel O’Donnell, Nathan Carter, Cliona Hagan, Mike Denver, Michael English, Robert Mizzell, Derek Ryan and Trudi Lalor – and 100 jivers from around the country giving it socks to an 80s classic.
We’ll hear from Robert Mizzell and his dad Richard, who will fly in from Louisiana, Susan McCann and 13 year old granddaughter Sinead, Cliona Hagan and sister Nicole, and Jimmy Buckley and daughter Claudia.
Ryan will also chat to the gentle giant of country Mick Flavin and his family about his 20 year road to success
Derek Ryan, Mick Flavin, Mike Denver, Dominic Kirwan, Margo, Louise Morrissey and Mary Duff will bring us on a trip down memory lane with a tribute to Hank Williams,
…and we’ll roll out the “Wagon Wheel of Fortune”, with team captains Fred Cooke and Anna Geary leading Michael English, Trudi Lalor and our audience superfans
Ryan will also catch up with the legendary Daniel O’Donnell, but will the duo take to the stage to perform?
The Late Late Show Country Special, RTÉ One, Friday, May 3rd at 9.35pm
