Laytown singer to perform on TG4's 'Glór Tíre'

Laytown songstress Maria Butterly, one of the finalists in TG4's 'Glor Tíre', will perform live on the show with her mentor John McNicholl on Wednesday, 20th February.

Ms Butterly is one of nine contestants taking part in the reality series which is searching for a new Irish country music star. She is the only contestant from Meath and the only one to perform an original song.

Ms Butterly is seeking the public's support and is asking people to vote for her.

An established independent artist in her own right, she enthralled and delighted the audience with a performance of her new single 'Angel' from her upcoming album 'Blue Mandolin' produced by Bill Shanley, which is due to be released in April.

Ms Butterly's move to perform an original song was a brave one and proved to be a hit with the fans and particularly the judges John Creedon and Charlie McGettigan.

Almost every country and national radio station in Ireland has given airplay to her single, as well as Irish Radio networks in the US.

Ms Butterly said she turned down 'The Voice' to participate in Glor Tire as she felt this was a door opening to launch her own unique original style of country music.

She is currently on tour with Ireland's country star John McNicholl who is her mentor for the show, and is putting the final touches to the launch of her new album. Fans can obtain a free download of her new single from her website If you missed Maria's first performance on TG4 of her singing 'Angel', it is now up on Youtube.

Her next performance on Glor Tire will be on Wednesday 20th February at 10.30pm and the show is repeated again on Saturday, 23rd February.
