Will this be Olly's big break Stateside?

The Wanted have recently said that the The X Factor family stick together, and it certainly looks that way as One Direction give Olly Murs the chance to shine in the US.

1D have announced their summer US and Canadian tour and Olly Murs will perform some shows as a special guest. He will join the tour after he has played Soccer Aid on May 27 and will play 19 dates of the 27 date tour.

With the current popularity of British music in America, it seems only natural that they will be equally as infatuated with our favourite cheeky chappy's tunes.

Olly's record company are stepping into gear releasing his chart-topping music Stateside this summer, and with a string of UK hits, two multiple platinum albums and a recent sold out UK tour under his belt, Olly is sure to follow in the fruitful footsteps of One Direction and The Wanted.

With his new single, Oh My Goodness, out on 1 April, Soccer Aid, two months of US performances and then an entire summer dedicated to working on his third album, Olly Murs is one very busy man. No wonder he says he hasn't got time for a girlfriend...
