Olly Murs Talks Touring With One Direction and Performs His Single “Heart Skips a Beat”
Olly Murs grew up dreaming of soccer stardom, but after an injury left him unable to play, he found a new passion in singing. After a less-than-serious start belting out karaoke in local pubs, he made it to the final two on UK’s The X Factor in 2010. His first CD was a success in the UK, and now Olly is set to release his second album in the States. We caught up with Olly in LA during his recent tour with One Direction. He chatted with us about the “cheeky” tone of his new CD, his role as de facto big brother to the One Direction boys, and why he’s still on the search for the right girl. He also performed an exclusive, stripped-down version of his new single, “Heart Skips a Beat.” Check it out and look for Olly’s album, In Case You Didn’t Know, in stores Sept. 25!
