Ahead of his debut album, Horan released the single “Slow Hands,” which went to No. 1 in 44 countries. He is currently working on and writing for that album.
Niall Horan’s Flicker World Tour 2018 will include Texas-born and Nashville-based Maren Morris. Her hit song “My Church” hit No. 5 on the U.S. Hot Country chart and was certified Platinum. She won a Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance, and her 2016 release of Hero reached No. 1 on the U.S. Country chart.
