Nathan Carter has opened up about making it in America, describing it as his dream.

The Wagon Wheel singer has toured the states already and said it was a huge success.

“We’re just back about three weeks after doing our first tour over there for a month. Thankfully some of the venues had sold out and we didn’t know what to expect, whether there’d be 20 people or 200 or 2000.

“But it went really well and we’ve been invited by the promoters to go back in May,” he told TV Now.

When asked about becoming a big name in the US, the singer said it is in his future plans.

“That’s something we’ll be focusing on over the next few years, to branch out there and to try to build a market. It would be a dream come true to break it one day.”

Nathan also revealed that they interpret his music a little differently over there. While we may describe him as a country music star, the Americans might not agree.

“They see it more as Celtic/folk/roots rather than country. We had adapted out set, anyway, so I was doing a lot more folk music over there and based a lot of the set around trad music.

“That was the kind of route we went down – there’s no point in me going over there singing Country music, they have the best Country singers in the world, they probably don’t need me as well.”

The second series of The Nathan Carter show returns this Sunday and the singer reveals he’s excited for it to kick off.

This season will see a whole host of musician’s joining Nathan on stage including Shane Filan and even former Spice Girl Mel C.
