host of Hot Country
Hugh O’Brien has been in the Irish country music business for over 35 years, producing the award-winning Hot Country show for the last 11 years, bringing viewers the latest in Irish country music.
Hugh O’Brien has been a part of Irish country music for over 35 years, first starting in management and then producing a very successful Irish country music magazine called ‘Personalities’.
For the last 11 years he has produced what is now Europe’s longest-running country music TV show. He was the first to give Irish country artists a platform on Sky TV and Freesat satellite covering Ireland, the UK and mainland Europe, bringing them into a huge viewing audience which was previously not available to them. This opened up doors for them across Europe.
He also presents the show which features the latest videos by irish artists as well as from other country artists from across the globe. A big part of the success of the show are the interviews with artists and music promoters.
