Olly Murs just spent the last two months opening for One Direction as the group toured America, but he’s not ready to rest.

The “Heart Skips a Beat” singer, who was runner-up on the UK X Factor in 2009, is readying his latest album, In Case You Didn’t Know for its September 25 release.

In the meantime, discover what the 28-year-old loved most about America.

On July 7, he tweeted:








The only thing he liked more than the grub, it seems, was the support U.S. fans showed him.

“I thought it was going to be a lot harder for me to win these guys over, but it’s actually been a lot easier than I expected. It’s been easy to just go out there and have fun on stage. That’s all credited to social networking I suppose and One Direction, and people tweeting. It’s just been a really great, great tour.”
