ABC Music sign Canadian country superstar, Gord Bamford

 

FIRST SINGLE ‘DON’T LET HER BE GONE’ AVAILABLE TODAY

Reigning CCMA ‘Male Artist of the Year’ Gord Bamford has been signed to ABC/Universal and has released his album locally on June 17th . 

His new album, ‘Tin Roof’, has already delivered two #1 singles in Canada including ‘Don’t Let Her Be Gone’ out now in Australia with a great clip to back it- SEE HERE

Upon release in Canada, ‘Tin Roof’ debuted at #11 on the Top Albums Chart and #2 on the Country Albums Chart (held out by Chris Stapleton’s new release at #1.)

“I am very excited about releasing my music in Australia. It is something that has been at the top of my to do list for years and I could not be happier about working with ABC/Universal to release what is my seventh album, but obviously my first for the Aussie market” said Gord…

“The release of my first single in Australia today is a bigger deal to me than most people could understand.  I am an Australian by birth. I was born in Traralgon Victoria and moved to Canada with my mother when I was five years old. I was estranged from my father for many years until quiet recently. It is a long story, but Dad is back in my life and my kids are now connected to their grandfather, which is amazing for me to see after all these years. Dad recently came over and travelled with me on one of my tours and saw me sing for the very first time. So this reconnection with Australia through my music is very special for me on many levels and I can assure everyone that I will be coming to Australia to tour often.”

Gord Bamford is one of Canada’s most decorated country artists and is a 22 x Canadian Country Music Award winner; including winning ‘Male Artist of the Year’ three times.

Most recently, Gord was awarded CMAs International Award ‘Jeff Walker Global Country Artist Award.’ This is the second time Gord has received this award (2013), and impressively, it is the first time any artist has won it twice. Gord found out he won with a personal message from international superstar Reba McEntire- SEE HERE

For ‘Tin Roof,’ Gord has collaborated with distinguished songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr, George Strait) to deliver an album that he feels is his best work to date.
