From Lacombe, Alberta.
Australian-born and Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford stands as one of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music with an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards, multi JUNO nominations and the only two-time winner out of Nashville’s Country Music Association (CMA) receiving the 2013 & 2015 CMA Global Country Artistaward. But it is his distinctive sound and songwriting ability that defines Gord Bamford as one of country music’s best neotraditional artists and like so many others that have come before him; 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 was released in early 2018 containing the smash #1 chart topper ‘Dive Bar’. Check out his work.
