Una Healy is getting a little bit country with Nashville star for debut single
Una Healy has teamed up with Nashville star Sam Palladio for her debut single as a solo artist.
The Tipperary native is gearing up for the release of her studio album with her first single set for release next month.
“The album is finished now and I have my first single coming out in October, it’s a duet with Sam Palladio from Nashville,” she told Independent.ie.
“I shot the video for the song in Nashville and I co-wrote it with Amy Wadge, she co-wrote Thinking Out Loud with Ed Sheeran.”
The mum-of-two was back in Dublin as she was announced as one of the judges for Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture alongside Louis Walsh.
The Mayo native (63) has promised big things for this year’s series of the show.
“I have got my category and I went to Ibiza for judges houses, I had a brilliant time. I had two female guest judges and we had a great time,” he said.
“There’s a lot of Irish people in it. There’s about five or six Irish people.”

Walsh is thrilled to be back on the show with judges Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger.
“Sharon is going to commute every week between LA and London, it’s going to be tough going, it’s going to be hard for her,” he said.
“But she loves that I’m there and Simon and Nicole because we all get on really well.”
