NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 15, 2018) – Mags McCarthy (Mags), a newcomer to Music City, Nashville and a fresh new face in the American country music scene, is set to make her official US debut with the release her new single, “Strong Enough.”* The track, slated to impact country radio on June 11, 2018 [PlayMPE (05/14/18)], comes as an early preview to Mags’ forthcoming CD
(ALL WAYS MAGS) anticipated in early Aug. 2018.
The musical composition and production is quick to reveal Mags’ spunky Irish character while the no-nonsense storyline portrays her vivacious, independent spirit and tenacity. Popping with electricity adrenalized by drums, and spotlighting Mags' violin performance, the admission to a no-win situation quickly translates the straightforward perspective that a hopeful future has quickly become the past. “While I’m a romantic at heart, there is so much that I love about this song,” introduced the fiery redhead, Mags. “It conveys a sense of honesty that love comes and goes, and parallels love to a poker game. My favorite line is ‘you took my time but not my heart’ which sums up the sentiment that if it’s not meant to be, let’s not waste any more time; let’s move on and, oh, there’s the EXIT sign.”
I could hope for better times
Close my eyes to all the signs
But I’m not wishing anymore
This thing is over - and I’m sure
So live your life and just be free
Cause that’s the way it’s got to be
I’m not about to fall apart
You took my time but not my heart
Grassroots Promotion will spearhead the radio promotion campaign; Mags will embark on the first leg of her radio tour beginning late June 2018. The track will be available via all major digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/iTunes/ Pandora/Rhapsody/Spotify) on Friday, June 1, 2018; digital retail distribution services will be provided by Digital Delivery Services (Ed Gertler). Mags has a number of appearances scheduled during “Country Music’s Biggest Party” (CMA Fest Week-June 5-10, 2018); visit magsmccarthy.com for more info.
Mags McCarthy is an eye-catching and captivating vocalist, dancer and multi-instrumentalist hailing from County Cork, Ireland. Mags began her musical arts pursuit as a four-year-old studying Irish dancing. Catering to an undeniable musical hunger, Mags expanded her curriculum to explore and learn a variety of dance styles as well as musical instruments with primary concentration in violin. Courted by the world-renowned Irish dance troupe, Rhythm Of The Dance, the UCC (University of College Cork) student became a global performer nearly overnight. The 29-year-old singer-songwriter and composer has since canvassed 40-plus countries, performing before millions as the principal lead of the dance troupe and a solo-touring artist.
Embracing the talents of the extraordinary artists who influenced her, Mags infuses energy and sounds from Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, Bruce Springsteen, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash and Garth Brooks into her live performances. She has received warm welcome to perform before notable dignitaries (President and First Lady Michelle Obama (at the White House), the President of Ireland, the Mayor of Shanghai, Members of the British Royal family, the young Prince of Luxembourg in Chelsea, London, England and European Parliament in Brussels) as well as numerous majestic locations (Dublin Castle, Lismore Castle, Waterford Castle, Blarney Castle, Ashford Castle and Blackwater Castle). Since laying stake in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2018, the former high school music teacher has taken center stage at Dollywood, Wildhorse Saloon, Hard Rock Café, 12th & Porter and many other historical Music City venues. In the past two years, her show schedule has tallied more than 600 shows.
