Sina Theil wins "Hottest Act in Irish Country Music" Award

Sina Theil was awarded the title "Hottest Act in Irish Country Music" at the prestigious annual Hot Country TV awards. The event took place on the 29th of April at the Slieve Russel Hotel, Co. Cavan. The fabulous event was sold out with a crowd in excess of 1,400 people and featured many of Irelands top Country music Stars, including Nathan Carter, Cliona Hagan, Mike Denver, Derek Ryan, Johnny Brady and many more.
The singer-songwriter, who was there accompanied by her manager Mike Gleeson, said: "We're so incredibly happy and proud to receive this award. We're working very hard to establish ourselves on the Irish Music scene and are so thankful for the support and recognition. A huge "thank you" goes to Hugh O'Brien and everyone involved, they are doing a fabulous job at promoting Irish Country music."
Sina also performed two songs on the night, accompanied by Matt Wilson (bass) and Lee Murphy (lead guitar & mandolin) - her version of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" which to date has been played over 300 times on the Irish Radio and a very special version of "The Dutchman" that will also feature on her soon to come Keltic & Irish folk album. The performance was televised and will be aired on "Hot Country TV" on the Keep It Country TV Channel soon (Sky 376, Freeview 87, Freesat 516).
Sina Theil is signed to Naas based record label Downda Road Productions and sponsored by ISS Recruitment & HR Services. She released her new single "East Bound and Down" on the 8th of May on all major download services and scored yet another #1 Single in the Irish Country Download Charts, this being her tenth #1 Single with Downda Road.
The song is also the theme to this years' "Full of the Pipe" Truck Show, taking place at Punchestown from the 8th-9th of June.
