American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres has pushed an Irish mom+teens country music group into the big time.

Ellen tweeted support for the wacky trio Crystal Swing after seeing their super-odd video "He Drinks Tequila," on YouTube.

Their ridiculously catchy song includes the can't-get-it-out-of-your-head line, "He drinks tequila while she talks dirty in Spanish."

The trio is made up of Mary Murray-Burke and her children Derek (18) and Dervla (17).

Just four weeks ago they were practically nowhere on YouTube with just 600 views.

But then Ellen tweeted and the video went viral.
It's now been seen some 182,000 times with 130,000 in the past seven days alone.

The family, from Lisgoold in East Cork, catapulted to fame after appearing on the digital TV channel, Rural TV.

Rural TV? I mean, who knew?!
