NAAS resident and country rock singer Sina Theil was named as the hottest act in Irish country music at the prestigious annual Hot Country TV awards recently.
The fabulous event took place before an audience of 1,200 people and featured many of Ireland’s top country music stars, including Nathan Carter, Cliona Hagan, Mike Denver, Derek Ryan, Johnny Brady and many more.
Accepting her award the Sina who was there accompanied by her manager Mike Gleeson, said: “We’re so incredibly happy and proud to receive this award. We’re working very hard to establish ourselves on the Irish music scene and are so thankful for the support and recognition. A huge “thank you” goes to Hugh O’Brien and everyone involved, they are doing a fabulous job at promoting Irish country music.”
Sina also performed two songs on the night, accompanied by Matt Wilson (bass) and Lee Murphy (lead guitar & mandolin) – her version of These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ which to date has been played over 300 times on the Irish radio and a very special version of The Dutchman that will also feature on her soon to come Celtic and Irish folk album. The performance was televised and will be aired on Hot Country TV on the Keep It Country TV Channel soon (Sky 376, Freeview 87, Freesat 516).
