“#REDNEK” SINGLE AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING/DOWNLOAD NOW! 

SUMMER FESTIVAL TOUR STOPS ANNOUNCED FOR CALGARY/CRAVEN/HAVELOCK

TORONTO, ON – June 28th, 2019 – Platinum selling recording artist and award winning Canadian Country music star Gord Bamford releases his first 2019 single “#REDNEK” today.

Download and Stream “#REDNEK”HERE

Co-written by award winning, singer-songwriter Buddy Owens, who has penned massive hits with various A-list artists including Bamford (“Leanin’ on a Lonesome Song”, “Where a Farm Used to Be”),“#REDNEK” is a destined to be a certified smash. Proudly referencing everything (almost) that defines the term redneck, Bamford adds another gem to his ever-increasing canon of hit country songs.

Gord Bamford relates, “I have written hundreds of songs throughout my career, but this one might be the best I have penned. Buddy and I definitely dialed it up on #REDNEK”. It took us about an hour to write, which is rare. When the final mix came we were pretty excited. It’s a song you’re going to want to crank up.”

Smoking, drinking, grilling, tractors, NASCAR, pontoon boats, hunting, cut off shorts and camos all get the nod in “#REDNEK”, a story of a modern redneck couple who can mix it up with high society, yet still stay true to their country roots. Look for the accompanying  “#REDNEK” music video later this summer.

To accompany the release of the single Bamford will introduce “#REDNEK”, a hashtag created to develop a unique platform for people who relate to the song to be able to share their version of what being a “#REDNEK is all about through social media.

Gord Bamford, one of Canadian Country Music’s most decorated artists, will introduce the track “#REDNEK” to his massive, dedicated fan base as the headlining act at festivals this summer.

Coldest Concert on Earth?

Coldest Concert on Earth? King of Canadian Country, Bamford Plays Show in -41° Weather

LEDUC, AB – February 2, Gord Bamford and his band didn’t hesitate to play in the cold despite -41°C (wind chill) weather. Hundreds of brave fans came out to enjoy the festivities of Rogers Hometown Hockey. 

The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour follows Sportsnet hosts Ron MacLean and Tara Slone as they travel across the country, making stops in 24 different communities to celebrate local hockey stories, and the game’s biggest stars.

“It felt great to play just up the road from my hometown of Lacombe and to be in a Alberta celebrating the great game of hockey.”

“It was impossible to keep instruments in tune but I was sure glad we could get the one song in. We wrote “Ain’t It Grand” to represent our great country of Canada and I’m glad people could hear it on a national platform like Hometown Hockey. I can tell you it’s the coldest show we ever played.”
