Just days before the first semifinal of Söngvakeppnin 2017, escxtra’s Wiv sat down with Rúnar Eff to have a quick chat about country music, going fishing with Eurovision royalty…and being too hot…the beach, that is!
Here you can watch the preview video of Heim til Þín.
This is Rúnar’s first time in Söngvakeppnin, but he is definitely not a newcomer on the Icelandic music scene; he has been recording and playing live shows for years! One of his most successful songs is his own song “Brotinn”.
We asked him if he would sing us a song during the interview, and he whipped out his guitar and did this wonderful cover of Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You”.
We wish Rúnar the best of luck in tonight’s semifinal!!
