    Nicky On The Cover of Irish Daily Mail’s Weekend Magazine

    Nicky is on the cover of today’s Irish Daily Mail’s Weekend magazine! For those who don’t live in Ireland and can’t read the article anywhere, I uploaded the pictures to the Gallery. Click on them to see their full size:

    Here are some of the highlights from the interview. Really worth the read!

    On finding his sound and ‘wow-ing’ people:

    “When I went to write a solo album I even surprised myself. Ronan Hardiman deserves a lot of credit because he instilled a lot of confidence in me when I got to the songwriting process. He couldn’t believe my tone and he told me that I had a real sweet spot in my voice that was best in a certain range and we tried to capitalise on that and he believed that we would shock a lot of people and hopefully we have.”

    On his upcoming Eurovision performance:

    “It does need a big performance and we have Lee Lodge on board who has produced the Grammys and VMAs as well as One Direction concerts so hopefully he will dream up something incredible and I can deliver it on the night. Right now we are assembling five backing singers to create the performance and they have to be brilliant.”

    On his former Westlife bandmates and their reaction to the news:

    “We are brothers and we never lost that bond so we are all doing really well in our own fields. I am sure they all went, ‘holy s**t, what is he doing?’ but then they saw the song and the video and got what I was doing. They have all worked with Wayne and they are very musical and they probably got it and went, ‘Only Nicky would do something like this…’.”

    On the Eurovision results:

    “The pressure is huge. Don’t get me wrong at the end of the day it is me standing on the stage and I am under no illusions as to what could happen. I thought long and hard about it because everything is going so well, radio is flying, I’m really happy at home and the kids are in school and healthy and happy. Why do you want to put yourself up to this? But life is short, I know it is a decent song and I am a fighter. I am very Irish and I don’t want to see us not qualify. That doesn’t mean I will guarantee that but I will do all the Press and promotion and do the video and call on the biggest names to mix it and if we fall short it won’t be for lack of effort.”

    On his family and Georgina’s support throughout his career:

    “If I qualify we will all want to be in the same country on the one night. So whatever happens I will be able to go and give them a hug in Stockholm. I’m guessing I will be away doing promo in early May so I will miss Georgina’s birthday, which won’t be ideal. Look, if there was a Golden Globe for best supporting wife she would win it hands down. She has stood by and supported me through Westlife, Strictly, the football career before that – and now Eurovision. When I first considered this I went to her, she just said ‘If you think you can do this then go and do it. Why would you let your fear stop you if you think you can do it?’ And that is just how amazing she is.”

    More on Eurovision + Nicky’s Album Promo Plans

    RTÉ News talked to Nicky about Eurovision and Ireland’s plans for this year at the most awaited song competition:

    Nicky told the Irish Sun that believes his late dad could be guiding his Eurovision bid. Nikki Byrne Sr was a major fan of the contest and would host Eurovision nights at Baldoyle Racecourse, where he performed in a cabaret band.

    “My dad is six years dead this November but I sometimes wonder are the stars aligned this year? Because my dad was such a fan of Eurovision, he would love this. I actually feel he was in the room when we wrote the song that would be our Eurovision entry Sunlight.”

    “Dad saw my career with Westlife go through the roof but he didn’t hear me on 2FM or hear my first solo album. But I still feel him very much around.”

    Nicky also chatted to about his plans to promote his album in the future, and how his family will always come first:

    “I’d love to promote the album but first and foremost I’m a dad, I’m a husband and I’m not going to be jumping on a tour for months on end,” he explained. “I’m not going to do that anymore but I’ll certainly promote the album and give it my best shot. You know I’m 37, I’m not Niall Horan, I’ve done that, I’ve worn that jersey being months on end when you haven’t been home and I loved it,” he revealed. “But it’s a young man’s game to do that and that’s not me when you have kids in school, playing their football and hobbies.”
