Country Star Derek Ryan wins big at the highly prestigious Hot Country Awards, at the Slieve Russell Hotel.

This year saw Country Star Derek Ryan lift two highly coveted awards, for ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and also ‘Album of the Year’.

This was a great win and well deserved for Derek and it looks as though the Carlow Man is over the moon advising fans he was ‘honoured’ to receive the awards.

This is not the first for the country star who has a long list of music tittles to his name, but to receive two awards at Ireland’s Country Music extravaganza could not have gone any better for the country star who could not be happier.

2017 has definitively been a great year for Derek Ryan so far, with only better things to come!
