Biography

Singing for world statesmen, singing in French, performing in South Africa, Russia, Switzerland, the United States, England or in her own beloved Emerald Isle of Ireland remains a way of life for Ireland’s First Lady of Country music Susan McCann, after over a quarter of a century as an international star.

The former US President George W. Bush, and his father George Bush Senior, are only two of the thousands of fans who have met and been entertained by Susan during her ascendant international career. She continues to amass new fans as well as retaining a loyal long standing fan base in the four corners of the world.

Her first single on Spin Records, “Santa and the Kids”, was a big success but it was her second release “Big Tom is still the King”, which took her to No. 1 in the Irish Pop Charts in May 1977 and the song remained in the Top 20 for 11 weeks. Up to then Susan did not want to travel any further than a 60-mile radius of her Co. Down, Northern Ireland home. The success of that No.1 song changed all that forever! It was a tribute to Tom McBride; one of Ireland’s most successful country music performers. This hit was the turning point in her career, which launched Susan to stardom.


By 1979 Susan was an artist with international appeal and on October 8th of that year she made her first appearance at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry. It was to be the first of many appearances at the Mother Church of Country Music in Music City USA.
