Gord Bamford Launches Neon Smoke With 29-City Tour

By FYI Staff

Canada's reigning king of country Gord Bamford has announced a 29-city tour in support of his eighth studio album, Neon Smoke, that has its release through Sony this Friday, Jan. 19.


The tour opens in Brampton, ON next Wednesday, Jan. 24, and winds down in Kelowna on March 2.

Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music history, winning an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards, and is a two-time winner (2013/2015) of Nashville’s Country Music Association CMA Global Country Artist award. Oddly, despite having had 22 Top-10 hits, including the #1 smash hit “When Your Lips Are So Close,” he has yet to win a single Juno Award.

Neon Smoke’s 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 frontman Jim Cuddy. The duet debuted on the 2017 CCMA Awards on September 10, in Saskatoon. The 3rd single and title track has been serviced to Canadian country radio stations this week.

 

Bookings by Vinny Cinquemani at The Feldman Agency, direction by Brian Halbert at Cache Entertainment.
