  20. Just a little bit about this new singer that I have found yes she sings county but even master likes her voice so she must be good. Name Lisa Mc Hugh she was born in Scotland but both her parents are Irish so her music is a little bit of Folk mixed with county. Looking around and trying to find a DV of Lisa and music only found one ? why because this is the first one she has made, So if you like music like above give her a trial you won't be dissapointed.
