Over $5 Million Total Raised By The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation

Toronto, ON – Multiple CCMA and CMA award-winning country star Gord Bamford, has raised over $143,000 in support of the The Gord Bamford Foundation via his Kick COVID in the A** Tour Part 1. With Gord’s leadership and connections, funds raised for the Foundation benefit youth in communities across Canada through initiatives and programs that support education, music, health care, sports and multi-use community facilities. Over the past 15 years, the Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation has raised a total of over $5 million to benefit Canadian youth.

The Kick COVID In The A** Tour Part 1 had stops across Alberta and Saskatchewan, and was made possible with incredible partners including Kubota Canada Ltd. and Peavey Industries LP. It is important to Gord that any funds raised from the tour through the support of fans, friends, and corporate partners are donated in the area they were collected in, and then spread throughout the region. Funds raised from the tour are supporting 13 community groups across Alberta and Saskatchewan. 

“It has always been important to me to never forget how it all began. This small town tour is exactly that, grassroots. The excitement and connection from the fans have been incredible. The timing for the tour was the latter part of the pandemic, and this allowed me to continue to do what I love to do, play music, especially during a time when it was needed the most,” said Gord Bamford. “The added bonus was the give-back component for local community groups. We helped them to raise considerable funds to reinvest into their programs during a time of high need.” 

Despite the global pandemic, the Foundation found creative ways to host several fundraising events over the last couple of years, including the CCMA-nominated Father’s Day Special, sold-out Drive-In Tour and the 15th Annual Gord Bamford Charity Golf Classic generating $367,000 to be distributed back into communities by the Gord Bamford Foundation. Gord’s incredible Wild Rose Co-op Fuel Good Community Concert also raised a total of $44,000 and supported 14 organizations in Camrose, AB.

“After a long wait for our Wild Rose Co-op Fuel Good Community Concert, we were able to have a great night in Camrose and were able to help raise $44,000. These monies will be distributed out to fourteen local community groups in the Camrose area. For a first-time event, this is a substantial amount, and we couldn’t have done it without the efforts and support of many, including key partners, business sponsors, volunteers and of course, all of the folks that purchased tickets,” said Gord Bamford.  

Industry peers widely respect Gord’s philanthropy efforts. He has been recognized for his work with honours including the MusiCounts Inspired Minds Ambassador Award (MIMAA) presented by The Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation, the 4-H Canada Distinguished Alumni Award and the CCMA Humanitarian of The Year Award.

The follow-up Kick COVID In The A** Tour Part 2 will begin later this fall, and will continue to raise funds to support communities across Canada. Any community organizations interested in participating should contact Corinne Szepesi at the Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation: 780-914-9175, corinne@gordbamford.com.

Monday, October 25, 2021 — Toronto, ON

Multi-platinum selling Canadian country music superstar, Gord Bamford and Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) are excited to announce a three year renewal of their partnership. The multi-year renewal will see KCL as the presenting sponsor of Gord Bamford’s upcoming tour dates, and the country icon will continue to represent the Kubota brand through appearing in dealership point of sale promotions, at in-store events and supporting marketing campaigns along with special dealership ticket packages and more.

“Everyone should have a partner like Kubota in their corner. The past three years of our partnership have been nothing short of incredible; my belief has been to align myself with companies who share the same core values,” says Gord Bamford. “Kubota has played such an integral role in supporting my career. They have been engaged, enthusiastic and understanding. Their support of the pivot from touring to virtual shows helped me move forward with the Drive-In concerts for Mental Health, where we raised $120,000 for community-based initiatives. It’s also been amazing to personally meet with so many dealers across Canada. I am excited to have three more years to meet many more.

Since the start of the partnership in 2018, Gord Bamford concerts and events sponsored, in part, by KCL have raised nearly $1 million to support youth charities and initiatives across Canada. These events included Pics ‘n’ Sticks, the drive-in tour, virtual shows and a prominent supporter of the annual Gord Bamford Foundation Charity Golf Classic.

Gord Bamford Celebrates “Finding Authentic Happiness” With “Heaven On Dirt” Video.

“It’s about finding your own heaven on dirt, that authentic place that brings you happiness and appreciate what is important to us.” ~ Gord Bamford

Australian-Canadian country performer highlights his love of “real country livin'” in his latest clip. by Marcus K. Dowling

Canadian country performer Gord Bamford’s latest, “Heaven on Dirt,” celebrates his love of what he calls “real country livin’,” which he tells CMT is defined by “enjoying life in a simple way.” The video for the song features Bamford farming in the midst of a city-scape, a shocking visual made even more impressive when the vocalist breaks down how it occurred, especially during a pandemic.

Gord released his 10th studio Album Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass
in June of 2021

“We took a risk by doing something completely different in order to still create something visual for ’Heaven On Dirt’,” says Bamford. “I filmed myself in front of a green screen in order to have live-action footage included in the video. Our director then placed it into the rest of the video that also included animation and live-action footage.”

He continues that he finds the messaging of the song “very powerful, especially given the times we all have been living in.” Moreover, he adds,

It’s about finding your own heaven on dirt, that authentic place that brings you happiness. We all live very busy lives, and one of the positives of this busy year was that we could slow down and appreciate what is important to us.

Ultimately, Bamford is excited about the completed version of his vision for “Heaven on Dirt” to be viewable in video form. “It presents the ’visual’ story behind the song,” he says. He also hopes that it conveys “the feeling I hoped my fans would have when hearing the single. I can’t wait to hear what the fans think about it.”

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.

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.
