Listen to Country Girl Teaser Ahead of Single Release!
One thing fans of Glasgow born Lisa McHugh can be sure of is that she is a Country Girl. If there was any doubt, that has now been dispelled with the release of her new single, the second track to be lifted from the number one album ‘Who I Am’.
‘Country Girl’ is a co-written song that tells the story of what a boy thinks he needs to do to attract a countrygirl which isn’t all about flowers and diamond rings. Instead he needs to show he can have a good time and “guide her round the floor till the end of the night, cause all you gotta do is do it right if you want to get a country girl”
Lisa has got the bug for song writing, having just returned from a 10-day trip to Nashville armed with new material.
Speaking today, an excited Lisa said she was still on a high from the Stateside trip and admits, although daunted about the prospect of sitting down with some of Nashville ‘s great lyricists she found the experience exhilarating.
“I hope in the very near future to record some of the songs and ultimately look forward to performing them to my fans”.
This past few weeks have seen a career high for Lisa performing at the Farmers Bash in the SSE Arena Belfast to over 8000 fans. Along with concerts and the upcoming weekend of dancing ahead of a busy period right through to New Year’s Eve, the Female Entertainer of the Year is looking forward to a well due rest at the start of January.
‘Country Girl is released on Friday 3rd November and is available for iTunes download here

LISA MCHUGH’S NEW ALBUM
Lisa McHugh’s new album ‘Who I Am” is released this week. Considering her huge fan base and international appeal, the Glaswegian born star has no end to the people who know exactly who she is; an Irish country music sensation and multi-time recipient of ‘Female Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year’.
‘Who I Am’ is her sixth studio album containing 13 tracks including ‘Country Girl’ which she has co-written. The song tells the story of what a boy who wants to meet a country girl has to do – something her legions of fans put in to practice each week at dances across the country where the single Lisa, who has not found a country boy yet, performs to sell out audiences.
Recently Lisa has been expanding her song writing skills, having just returned from a 10-day trip to Nashville armed with new material. Whilst there, Lisa renewed old acquaintances with Larry Gatlin at the Grand Ole Opry met stars of the hit TV show, Nashville as well rubbing shoulders with Luke Bryan and also fitting in a number of recording sessions.
The new album features a mix of new country favourites including the hugely popular ‘Follow Your Arrow’, “Head Over Boots’ and ‘Happy People’ along with the classic Merle Haggard song ‘Mama Tried’ and the first single lifted from the album ‘Girl With The Fishing Rod’.
Speaking about the release of the new album, which is being launched at the massive Farmers’ Bash in the SSE Arena, Belfast on Friday, the Fermanagh based singer said:
“This year has been a complete whirlwind to say the least. We have been incredibly busy doing shows and so many other exciting things all year which has been fantastic. However, it has proven a little more difficult to squeeze time in the studio as much as we hoped but we managed in the end.
“The songs on this album are really some tracks that I have either loved for many years or ones that I am currently loving.
“I worked hard to put my own stamp on these songs and tried to make them more like me which is why I thought “Who I Am” was the perfect title for the album as well as having a track included with that name. As always, I have tried to include something for everyone and every age group also, so hopefully I managed to achieve that.”
In mid-autumn Lisa’s LTV weekly show on Facebook will be returning, which includes a mix of music, chat and exclusive fan news. The first series attracted record audiences around the world which showcased her versatility as a presenter each Wednesday night.
‘Who I Am’ is released on Friday 6th October and is available from lisamchughmusic.com, sharpemusic.com and iTunes download.

Lisa McHugh – The Story So Far
With the determination and talent to last a lifetime, Lisa McHugh is a Glaswegian born star that’s more than ready to shine.
With her mum and dad’s love for country music, Lisa was introduced to the scene at a young age. She grew up listening to everything from Daniel O’ Donnell to Alan Jackson and with a huge passion for music, Lisa quickly learned how to play guitar and began singing.
With her talent growing each day and immense drive and determination, Lisa’s ambition to pursue a career in country music grew and in June 2010 she left her job in her dad’s construction business and moved to Ireland. She quickly put together her band, with her connections in the business after travelling to and fro for gigs, and soon got her show on the road. Now with a crew of 10 and a show that has scores of people dancing all night long, Lisa is certainly living the dream.
