From Oylegate, Co Wexford, Michelle Murphy is a fan of both country music and social dancing. She feels getting out to a show and throwing a few shapes is an instant lift for just about anybody. As a young girl she looked up to the likes of Philomena Begley, Louise Morrissey, Margo and Gloria. They remain some of her favourite singers to this day. She feels the modern wave of country singers have brought a whole new audience to the scene and this has injected great energy into Irish country music. For Michelle, the appeal of country music is its relatability and the strong storytelling element of songs.
