Windsor’s Country FM 95.9 & 92.7 presents The Neon Smoke Tour featuring Gord Bamford with Aaron Goodvin at the Chrysler Theatre on Friday, January 26, 2018.
“He’s been called Canada’s answer to George Strait but a distinctive sound and songwriting ability is what defines Gord Bamford.”
International country music star and Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. recording artist Gord Bamford’s 2018 Neon Smoke concert tour will stop to thrill music fans in Windsor, Ontario. Gord Bamford has invited Warner Music Canada breakout artist Aaron Goodvin to come along and beat on his “Lonely Drum”
Gord Bamford continues to work toward delivering the best in country music. With 22 Top-10 singles in Canada, including the #1 smash hit ‘When Your Lips Are So Close’ from Gords’ 6th studio album “Country Junkie” Gord has a deep history of creating the songs that country music fans want to hear. 2018’s Neon Smoke continues Gords’ prolific song writing. The albums debut single, 2017’s summer anthem “Livin’ On Summertime”, broke the Top 10 on the Canadian Country music charts. The follow up single “Ain’t It Grand” saw Gord Bamford joining Blue Rodeo’s charismatic frontman Jim Cuddy to duet on this catchy, fun and ultra-Canadian gem. “Ain’t it Grand” debuted on the 2017 CCMA Award’s on September 10th, in Saskatoon and is currently racing up the country radio charts. Fans can catch new songs from Neon Smoke performed on the tour.
“Each time I set out to make a new record my goal is to make the best record of my career and stay true to what has got me to where I am today” says Bamford. “I’ve had the opportunity of a lifetime making people all over the world sing, dance, laugh, cry & love through the power of song. I shake my head every day with the thought that I actually get to support my family doing what I love. I have watched the business change over the years and I am proud to present my best record yet. Neon Smoke is not just a single or an EP, it’s a 16 song album that will take the listener on a musical journey.”
Gord Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music history. No stranger to praise Bamford has amassed an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards, multi Canadian JUNO Award nominations and is the two time winner (2013/2015) of Nashville’s Country Music Association “CMA Global Country Artist” award. Gord Bamford’s distinctive sound and song writing ability defines him as one of country music’s best neo-traditional artists. Bamford is not an overnight success. He has spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft, working to get where he is today. Bamford’s eighth studio album Neon Smoke is set to be released in early 2018 and follows his 7th release, 2016’s Tin Roof, the winner of the 2016 CCMA Album of The Year and nominated for the 2016 JUNO “Country Album of The Year” award. Tin Roof follows the JUNO Nominated 2013 release Country Junkie. The 3-time CCMA ‘Male Artist of the Year’ once again collaborates with distinguished songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr, George Strait) on 2018’s Neon Smoke.
