The public will once again vote for their favourite stars across 8 Award categories including Best Male, Best Female, Best Newcomer, Album of the Year, Video of the Year, Best Live Band and the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award 2018.

Last year’s inaugural awards played host to stars such as Foster & Allen, who took home a Lifetime Achievement Award - and Cliona Hagan, who won Best Female Artist. Liverpool singer Nathan Carter won Best Male Artist and Album of the Year for Livin’ the Dream.

Country singer Malachi Cush returns to host what promises to be an equally superb evening.

Sarah Murphy, Director of Commercial Operations for The Irish Post, says:

"The Irish Post Country Music Awards were a huge success in 2017 with record television and online viewing figures. We look forward to building on this in 2018 with a range of top tier artists competing for honours and showcasing their best material to an engaged audience across the globe. Country music is at the heart of Irish communities at home and abroad and championing this Irish culture is a foundation of The Irish Post brand."
