CLIONA Hagan admits that growing up in the noughties, like girls of her age, when “the Spice Girls and Britney were all the rage” she “never knew Country” and Country never knew her.

Now all that has changed and to many fans she is the top young female Country singer in Ireland and her new Secret Love album can only enhance her reputation.

Cliona sings about how she found Country music on one of the tracks on the album titled Country Found Me. It tells about her going off to college, getting a music degree but as she sings, “still I never knew Country and Country never knew me”.

It was written by Henry McMahon and it tells the story, very succinctly, about how seeing young American stars Miranda Lambert and Jennifer Nettles on TV singing the classic Loretta Lynn hit Coal Miner’s Daughter she suddenly got turned on to Country.
