Tayla Lynn, granddaughter of Loretta Lynn and Leona Williams are two major country stars that fans can look forward to.
Niamh Lynn and Louise Morrissey also take to the stage for a celebration of Loretta’s songs and music.
A brand new format coming from Opry le Daniel this year and indeed, new to any music series, is the ‘Country Music Family’ show which introduces those musical family members who have never previously appeared on stage together for Television.
Here, we will introduce Brendan Quinn with his sons James and Stephen, Dominic Kirwan and sons Barry and Colm. Truly a great occasion for all of these family members.

The world famous Isla Grant from the Scottish borders, an entertainer who’s country and folk-tinged singing has brought her a worldwide audience is sure to get toes tapping.
