Biography
John Hogan hit the Country Music scene with a bang in 1988 when he took a gamble and spent his mortgage money to realise a dream. He recorded a song called Brown Eyes that was taught to him by his mother. The song was an instant hit shooting straight into the top ten of the Irish charts. John at the time was working as a Supervisor with the Irish company Bord na Mona in Tullamore, Co. Offaly and the success of the song took him completely by surprise. The song was so popular with radio listeners that they were calling the radio stations wanting to know more about this new voice. The radio statios were kind of stuck, they knew nothing about him. Within 2 weeks John had left his job at the factory and was on the road with his new band. Such was his popularity that almost straight away John had become a big country music star in Ireland and was packing venues to the point that they were turning people away. John signed with Harmac Records and his first album My Feelings for you was released, it became the best selling country album ever in Ireland and produced many irish chart hits. His popularity had now got the attention of Mick Clerkin who was the owner of London based Ritz Records.
