Cool is the debut single from country music’s hottest new duo, KIRWAN the band. A husband and wife team, the pair were both born in the north of Ireland – but individually made their way to Nashville, where they met – of course – in an Irish pub.
Colm’s resume boasts a friendship with country music legend Don Williams, with whom he toured for many years, whilst Caitriona has opened shows for Van Morrison and is a Pannarts Songwriting Competition winner. That competition win led her to Music City, where she performed at the Bluebird Cafe. The pair married in 2020 in their native Ireland, before returning to Tennessee as partners – in life and in music.
A successful Kickstarter campaign funded an album produced by Matt Johnson, and the rest – as they say – is about to go down in the history books.
Cool is a modern pop-country summer jam. Colm and Caitriona claim their songs detail love, faith, hope, and a country way of life – and Cool sounds just like all of that. It has a smooth, laid-back beat perfect for a top-down, shades-on, open road kind of day. Upbeat but not overly so, the song’s modern production style is perfect for tapping toes and drinking lemonade. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
