Nathan Carter tells of the moment country music legend Philomena Begley pinched his bum

Irish country singer Nathan Carter has said he is keeping his new Fermanagh location a secret – but is happy to pose for selfies while out and about.

The 33-year-old, who has spent months touring abroad, says he is happy to be back in Ireland for the next couple of months, relaxing in his new home.

The biggest country star since Daniel O’Donnell, Nathan told Ireland AM that he made TikTok videos in his last house as well as doing magazine shoots - but he now prefers to keep his home life private. He says he is staying put in his new house for a while.

"I’m never moving again. It was the most stressful thing I ever did."

But his new house has its perks as it’s beside a lake, with Nathan revealing: "I just bought a canoe."

The singer also spoke about touring endlessly and hitting America.

"The tour that never ends. We did a couple of festivals in New York and Boston."

But there is a downside to doing so many gigs.

The star continued: "I hate the travelling. It does get me down now and then."

Nathan’s biggest fan is his 83-year-old, Nan, Anne McCoy, who sells merchandise at his gigs.

The star has also worked with country music legend, Philomena Begley. He spoke about a fun video he shot with her.

"She is just the height of craic. Great fun to be around.

"We’d be under covers… she’d be there pinching my bum."

Nathan admits he hasn’t ever got into the fame thing.

"It’s a bit weird. It is what it is.

"Generally if a young one is coming up (for a selfie), it’s usually for her 92-year-old gran," he jokes.
