Irish America’s Favourite Son, Andy Cooney, has just released his new single, paying tribute to all of the key-workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

From Long Island, New York, Andy Cooney has been at the centre of some of the communities worst-affected by the Coronavirus crisis since the outbreak proliferated in March. Joined on the song by his own son Ryan, the pair reflect on the song as being a message of hope to New York, America and the World on the road to recovery from COVID-19.
 


Penned by Andy and Ryan Cooney, the track was produced by Jeff Teague in Nashville, who has produced in the past for Pam Tillis, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Rogers and the late Joe Diffie, who passed away in April following complications from COVID-19.
 
Within his native New York, Andy has filled out the prestigious Carnegie Hall on eight different occasions, as well as having appeared at the Lincoln Centre. Nevertheless, he has remained loyal to his Irish heritage and culture which features heavily in his live performances, leading to him being dubbed “Irish America’s Favourite Son” by The New York Times.
 
Through a number of foreign travel trips, Andy has been strongly involved with connecting Irish emigrant communities around the world with their native Ireland. His ‘Cruise of Irish Stars’ trip regularly sells out and features some of the top stars from Ireland as well as the USA. He is due to charter a ten-day trip to Ireland and Liverpool in September, although this is still dependent on travel restrictions being lifted by that time.
 
Reflecting on the song, Andy said:
 
“We wrote this song to convey to the listeners we need to look out for each other and show our love and compassion, as we find a way to get through this. This song goes out to all nurses, doctors, first responders and  to this pandemic. As the song says: "we know that it won't last forever, if we're all in this together.”
