MAYO'S Ed Holland of Hurricane Highway.

West of Ireland Hurricane hits US Country highway

NASHVILLE, Music City USA, is an almost impregnable scene for musicians outside of America to break into. A bit like trying to sell fridges to the Eskimos!

However, Mayo band Hurricane Highway is brewing up a storm over there with their new CD, All Time Favourite, featuring Nashville co-produced songs, with more to follow.

In addition, lead singer Ed Holland is now on a song-writing team that provided hits, including The Dance for Garth Brooks, and, along with fellow musician Kevin Collins, he will soon be recording a full album of all originals in Nashville.
