It's host Patrick Kielty's very first Late Late Country Music Special tonight, and he has told how he's no stranger to country music -  growing up in the dance halls of County Down.

Speaking ahead of the show, Patrick said:

“Growing up in Co Down, country music was the soundtrack to my childhood. 

"From Philomena to Brian Coll, if we weren’t listening to country at home, we were backstage at dancehalls with my dad, who promoted lots of the acts at that time.

"I’ve so many fond memories from then and I’m really looking forward to bringing it all back home with my first Late Late Show Country Special tonight.”

The biggest names in Irish country music will join Patrick for Friday's show, which will see one household name inducted into the Irish Country Hall of Fame - an accolade previously awarded to Daniel O'Donnell, Philomena Begley, and Margo. 

The Late Late Show Country Music Special has proved incredibly popular over the years - second only to The Late Late Toy Show in demand for audience tickets.

With plenty of surprises in store for some audience members in studio and viewers at home, it is a show that is not to be missed.

The Late Late Show Country Special airs tonight, Friday, 9:35 pm on RTÉ One and RTÉ Player.
