"If there’s a writer from this side of the pond capable of a career as a tunesmith on Music Row Gary Quinn is it…” Duncan Warwick - Editor of Country Music People
A 7 time British Country Music Association Awards winner including most recently retaining 'Male Vocalist of the Year 2019' and previously 'UK Songwriter of the Year' and consecutive 'Song of the Year' honours, Northern Irishman Gary Quinn has become one of British country music’s more established performers. Quinn cites U.S. country artists such as Garth Brooks and Brad Paisley as influences, has opened for the visiting CMA Songwriters Series, toured with Phil Vassar and William Michael Morgan and shared the stage with acts such as Kristian Bush, Sarah Darling and hall of fame songwriter Bob DiPiero. An accomplished performer, Quinn is just as comfortable with a pen in his hand and has collaborated with Grand Ole Opry member and Grammy winner Steve Wariner as well as Brett James, Trent Tomlinson, Jenn Bostic and J.P Williams.
