The Sometimes singer-songwriter has opened up about supporting the Not Nineteen Forever band on tour.

Gerry Cinnamon has praised Courteeners, calling them the "soundest" band ever.

The Scottish singer-songwriter, who just announced his UK tour dates for 2019 and is currently supporting the Cavorting outfit their UK tour dates, has revealed how down to earth they are.

"The Courteeners, man - I can't speak of them highly enough, absolute diamonds," the Belter told Radio X's Gordon Smart.

"I was genuinely worried about it," he admitted about supporting such a famous band. "Most people in music aren’t really the nicest people, do you know what I mean? But honestly, they’re the soundest guys I’ve ever met.”

Courteeners frontman Liam Fray seems to feel exactly the same way, previously calling the Castlemilk singer his "hero".

Sharing a video, in which Gerry snuck into his taxi at 3am, Fray said: "Listen this man's fucking killing it. He's been my hero for fucking ages, but now he's everyone else's new hero..."
