While many bands have a relatively similar programme, The Outlaws have placed their faith in the â€˜real dealâ€™ country music.
Bandleader Sean Hughes is not your ordinary dyed-in-the-wool country music singer and enthusiast.
Instead, he draws his inspiration from many sources and believes the songwriter is often the unsung hero in so many genres of music.
â€œEveryone that has ever written a good song â€“ those are the men and women whom I look up to in a special way. I have had a fascination with the writers of songs ever since I can remember. I would always check who wrote a song, even in my teenage years. People like Buddy Holly, Neil Sedaka, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Waits, Sammy Cahn.
â€œI have enormous respect for songwritersâ€, he told The Nationalist.
Currently riding high with a brilliant song called â€˜The Best Part Of The Dayâ€™, The Outlaws will appear for a bank holiday special at The Times Hotel, Tipperary Town on this coming Sunday night, May 4.
