Big Tom - Story and Song | DVD
Big tom Mcbride has been an iconic figure in irish country music for close on five decades. It has been an amazing journey for the man from oram near castleblaney in the Co Monaghan. Big Tom and the mainliners have been at the heart of the country scene since they surged to the top in the mid 1960's.
When Hugh O'Brien of hot country approached me to do a television interview with Big Tom about his life and times in showbiz i was delighted to accept. It was a real privilege to record it in the McBride family home where we were warmly welcomed by tom and his wife rose.
The response to the show on sky 191 in the first of the Hot Country life stories series has been amazing. So much so that hugh decided to issue the show on DVD format for the many people who have been asking for copies.
I believe this is the definitive interview with Big Tom, Irelands kinf of country, truly and without doubt the best loved singer of them all. It will be cherished by all fans of the great man for years to come. We loved our visit to monaghan, we hope you do top. Keep it Country!
