He may still be close to his ex-girlfriend Lisa McHugh, but Nathan Carter (26) has confirmed he is ready to find love again.

The country music star, who lives in Enniskillen, split from the Scottish singer after dating her for several months last year.

However, he now says he's looking for a new lady.

"I am single at the minute and looking," he told the Herald.

"I am still friends with Lisa. We hang about. We went out for a while, but it didn't really work out. She lives in Enniskillen as well."

Although he may be open to a relationship, the Wagon Wheel singer admitted it's hard to find the time to date with his hectic work schedule.

"My nights off are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and they are kind of dead in town, so there are not many places to go out and do stuff," he said.

The Liverpool native said he has had some strange fan encounters over the years.

"The gigs that I do, the fan-base is from kids up to grandparents as well as teenage girls. It's very mixed," he said.

"I have not had anything too crazy. There are a few fans with my face tattooed on their arms and backs and things. That's a bit different. It's a compliment.

"I saw one and I asked who it was, I didn't realise it was me - which was kind of embarrassing for the lady involved. I didn't think it looked that much like me."

Nathan was an award winner at the RTE Irish Country Music Awards, which aired last night.

With so much success coming his way, the crooner admitted he prefers life in the country, where he can escape the spotlight.

"It's nice when people come up and speak to you and ask for pictures and stuff, but sometimes you just want to be by yourself," he said.

"I love visiting Dublin, but I like the peace and quiet of Enniskillen."
