THE talented country music family The Murphys are looking forward to taking centre stage in their home county as they launch their Irish concert tour in The Gleneagle Hotel on September 28.
The first Kerry band ever to top the iTunes country chart in Ireland, The Murphys are also officially the only female songwriters to pen an entire country album to top this chart. “The proudest thing for us as a family from Kerry is representing our home in hub of the Irish country music industry up in Northern Ireland,” said Candy Murphy.
For their Killarney concert, the group will have Sean Keane as guest star. Since its release in November 2016, The Murphy’s debut self-penned album “Breaking Ground” reached number one in the iTunes Country Album Charts, Ireland – not once but twice. “It was entirely written and co-produced by ourselves,” said Candy. “We are officially the only female songwriters to write an entire country album to top the iTunes Country Chart in Ireland.”
