Vocalist Ronan Tynan will exit the Irish Tenors later this year to focus on his solo career. Tynan's last tour with the group will commence July 1 in Wolf Trap, Va. The tenors will be touring in support of their most recent Razor & Tie album, "Heritage," which recently hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top World Music Albums chart.

"It has been a fantastic six years working with my good friends Anthony Kearns and Finbar Wright, but I have been spread too thin," Tynan says, adding that he will perform with the group as his schedule permits. "It is not fair to these extraordinary singers and the success they have achieved thus far, to have them waiting for me to be available to tour in the future."

Next up for Tynan is an appearance in the Meg Ryan-narrated Showtime Family Zone special "What's Going On," which premieres May 20 on the cable channel. He is also at work on two solo albums, due sometime next year. Finally, talks are underway for a film adaptation of his 2002 autobiography, "Halfway Home: My Life 'Til Now."
