Interesting facts and trivia about The Corrs. By Songfacts®.

The Corrs are Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and Jim - four siblings from the small town of Dundalk, Ireland which lies north of Dublin near the border with Northern Ireland. When The Corrs were just wee kiddies, their parents, Gerry and Jean Corr, performed in Irish pubs under the name Sound Affair. They would cover hits by groups like ABBA, The Police and the Eagles, often bringing the children along to performances. When Gerry and Jean Corr received a grand piano as a wedding gift from Gerry's father, they had no idea it would be their children's gateway to fame and fortune. Jim is the oldest Corr and was the first to pick up the instrument when he began tinkling away on the keys around age 4. The others soon followed suit with lessons and encouragement from their parents. Later in their teens, Jim mastered guitar while his sister Sharon took up the violin. Caroline took up drums a bit later, and while Andrea's beautiful voice complimented the other's musicianship well, she didn't start playing tin whistle until 19.

The Corrs got their first big-break in 1991 when the auditioned for Alan Parker's movie The Commitments. Set in the slums of Dublin, it tells the story of one man's quest to bring soul music to the people of Ireland by assembling "the worlds greatest band." All four Corrs received small roles in the film, but only Andrea scored a speaking part as Sharon Rabbitte, the lead character's younger sister. After auditioning for the film, The Corrs scored a manager in musical coordinator John Hughes.

The Corrs second album Talk on Corners was released in October of 1997 to quite a lukewarm response. Even with production from Glen Ballard, hot on the heels of his collaborative work with Alanis Morrisette, the record received little attention outside of Ireland. But after their cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" hit the Top 10 in the UK and was added to a reissue of the record, the band's career took off. Three more Top-10 hits followed, and Talk on Corners became the UK's highest selling album of 1998.
