At just 23, Nathan has been helping to lead something of a country music revival - particularly among younger generations.
And he has just recently played his biggest gig yet, packing out the Waterfront Hall in Belfast over two nights.
"I knew it seated a couple of thousand and I just didn't think it would be possible to sell - I thought it was going to make us look a bit silly," Nathan laughs.
"But it did end up selling and then they decided to put a second night on which was just incredible."
Three months ago, Nathan released his album and saw it go to the number one spot in the Irish charts, beating the likes of One Direction and Michael Bublé.
"I think the last country album to be number one in Ireland was Garth Brooks about seven years ago, so that was a massive achievement," he says.
The singer may have been born in Liverpool, but his maternal grandmother is from Warrenpoint and Nathan has certainly won huge support from fans across Northern Ireland and the Republic.
"The last year has been incredible," he smiles.
