In the lead up to the main event, RTÉ Player has launched a collection dedicated to the country music phenomenon that is sweeping Ireland.

For Daniel O’Donnell fans, the man with the velvet vocals selects his five most memorable interviews and performances from the RTÉ Archives including a duet with wife, Majella, on the Late Late Show in 2011, and a medley of his greatest hits at the Rose of Tralee 2015 where he had the crowd dancing in the aisles and busted out a few fancy moves of his own.

You can also watch Daniel perform a medley of the songs nominated for the All Time Favourite Country Music Song on the Ray D’Arcy Show.
