Alberta Pride Artist: Gord Bamford
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 26 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 Artist award.
He has spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft, working to get where he is today. But it’s his distinctive sound and songwriting ability that defines him as one of country music’s best neotraditional artists.
Bamford’s eighth studio album Neon Smoke was released in early 2018 containing the smash #1 chart-topper ‘Dive Bar’. He’s currently working on his 9th studio album, and recently released it’s first single #REDNEK.
