To bring the song to life, Andy enlisted the help of legendary performer Mick Flavin to add his vocals to the track. They were joined by one of Irish Country Music's upcoming talents, Johnny Brady, to create something that is fresh, original and unique.

Andy is currently celebrating the success of his recent venture into chartering his own cruise-ship, 'The Cruise of Irish Stars' which this year featured Mike Denver, Derek Ryan, Ronan Tynan and over 50 Irish Musicians. He plans to repeat the venture in 2017, and also hopes to return on tour to Ireland later this year. He also played to sell out audiences on a hugely successful US tour with Phil Coulter and Geraldine Brannigan in March this year. 

On the Irish Country Music Radio Airplay Chart (Sat Apr 02 to Fri Apr 29 inclusive) the single sits atop of the chart at #1!
