ENNISKILLEN-based Country music star, Nathan Carter, has announced that he will release his “revealing and inspirational” autobiography later this year.

In a tweet posted on Tuesday afternoon, the ‘Wagon Wheel’ singer revealed that his new book, ‘Born for the Road’, which will be published by Penguin Ireland, is due on the shelves from this September.

In recent years, Nathan Carter has become Ireland’s biggest Country music star.

He is heralded by many as reviving the Country music genre and bringing it into the mainstream. He has sold out venues across the UK and Ireland, has landed his own primetime show, and is loved and respected by legions of fans across Ireland.

But how did a lad from Liverpool accomplish all this before the age of 27?

In his revealing and inspirational autobiography, Carter will reminisce about his music-filled childhood, and growing up in Merseyside with his Liverpool-Irish family.

From his first taste of showbiz at the tender age of four, to his success on the north of England club circuit and his subsequent relocation to Donegal and then Fermanagh, he will explore the twists of fate that took him to chart success and to become Ireland’s adopted poster boy for Country music.
