Mickey Joe Harte has claimed the number one spot on the iTunes Irish Country Charts.

The Lifford singer-songwriter’s new single, ‘For The Broken Hearted’, surpassed gems by stars such as Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, and Nathan Carter.

Since releasing the single two weeks ago it has been met by a fantastic reception, garnering thousands of views on YouTube and being played on national airwaves.

The song was also chosen as Hot Press’ Track of the Day last week, and has featured on RTÉ’s Radio 1 Playlist.

The single sees Mickey Joe leaning a little further toward the Americana Roots genre.

Mickey Joe fans are in for a treat, as this is the first single to be released from his sessions with producer Dieter Kirchenbauer in Germany. A further single is planned for spring 2018, followed by a new EP.

Mickey Joe loves to perform live, and we are looking forward to some Irish shows by him from spring of 2018.
