Former Boyzone member Ronan Keating is one of those performers who parents love their kids to listen to - and given his penetration of "adult contemporary" radio station playlists, that may well be because the parents want to put his CD on while the kids are at school. Keating, or Ronan to his fans, is the well-dressed, all-round nice guy that has clean lyrics, a young family of his own and sings music generic enough to engage audiences both younger and older.
2009 holiday release from the leader of Boyzone. Following the success of Ronan Keating's international #1 album Songs For My Mother released earlier this year, Ronan has recorded another special set of songs entitled Winter Songs.
