In 1987 Willie came to the notice of Louise Morrissey who, at that time, was putting her new Country band together and he was offered the job as drummer and he has never looked back. Willie spent a total of seven years on the road with the band. While Willie was working with Louise, his talent as a fine singer did not go unnoticed.
Willie decided to record an album called Blue Eyes along with quite a few singles. Country music is a huge love for Willie and quite recently became a presenter on Irish Country Music Radio.com.
