It’s been a whirlwind 10 years for Derek Ryan: after touring the world, releasing chart-hits year after year, and achieving ten best-selling studio albums (with his last award-winning album aptly named TEN) – 2019 seems to be the right year for Derek Ryan to release a collection of his
number 1 hits and fans-favourite songs that have made the singer – songwriter one of the biggest names in the Irish country music scene.
10 years, 10 albums – it’s a wonder how Derek Ryan could choose only 21 tracks from his illustrious and expansive back catalogue of hits.
However, fans will be delighted to know many of Derek’s classic songs will feature on the record: from the original, self-penned ‘God’s Plan’, to
arguably Derek’s biggest hit ‘Hold On To Your Hat’, featuring the internationally acclaimed musician Sharon Shannon. Newer songs such as ‘Down On Your Uppers’ and the duet single ‘Honey Honey’ with Lisa McHugh are also included, highlighting the hits old and new, which have firmly cemented the Carlow singer’s position at the top table of Irish country music’s elite, as the name ‘Derek Ryan’ continues to propel to new heights.
