“It’s almost a pat in the back that people can talk about you when you’re not there and the audience knows who you are,” insisted the Donegal singer.
“I’m amazed I’m that well-known that people can use me in any way. I don’t think they’re nasty, they’re just joking.”
The Kincasslagh singer – about to do a tour of America and Canada – says his choice of country music was always going to be criticised.
“When I started singing, I didn’t do what was of my generation. I should have been singing pop music … I went against the grain from the very beginning.”
“If I wanted to blend in, then I would have sung pop music. But that’s not where my heart was,” he said.
