Filey’s Tommy Taylor has topped the country music charts with his debut single Popcorn. On the day of its release Popcorn shot to number one on the iTunes Country Chart.
The website Forever British Country described Popcorn as ‘a very rocky country song, definitely one I can see being popular at shows. Tommy’s gravely voice suits the song so well. There’s some great beats and guitar riffs, definitely a song that needs to be turned up loud!’
Due to the restrictions imposed because of the Corona virus pandemic, the song was recorded in Tommy’s diner on Hope Street and used some old tights and a box for a microphone booth. You can download Tommy’s chart topper from iTunes.
Tommy Taylor also runs Tommy’s Americana Bar and Eatery with his wife Lauren on Hope Street. As well as selling a mouth-watering range of food inspired by the Deep South, Tommy’s also regularly hosts country music nights, attracting artists from across Britain and beyond.
Tommy is donating any proceeds from song sales, to ‘Team Tiernan‘, a local lad who is fundraising for some excellent causes.
