The Corrs were formed to audition for the 1991 film The Commitments. Jim, Sharon, and Caroline had a small part as musicians, while Andrea got a speaking part as Sharon Rabbitte, sister of the main character. While auditioning for the movie they were noticed by their future manager, John Hughes.
Their first album, Forgiven, Not Forgotten, had its greatest success in Australia. They followed this up with Talk On Corners, which was very popular in Ireland and Britain. Both have been certified gold in the United States and the recent In Blue has been certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2004, they released Borrowed Heaven, which has been very popular in Ireland.
They also recorded Canto Alla Vita with Josh Groban for his self-titled album.
The band's usual support musicians are Anto Drennan (lead guitar) and Keith Duffy (bass guitar). From 2004, Duffy's brother Jason Duffy joined on percussion, with Kieran Kiely on accordion and keyboards.
