Gord Bamford Tour

Gord Bamford Tour

The second leg of the Canadian Dirt Tour is an expansion of Gord’s already widely successful significant run of dates and will stop next in Meaford, ON at the Meaford Arena on September 22nd and wrap in Thunder Bay, ON at the NV Music Hall on November 9. In addition to this, Gord has dates in Alberta and Saskatchewan in late November. Joining Gord for a series of performances is emerging Canadian country singer-songwriter and military veteran, Dallas Alexander.

The tour follows the release of Gord’s 11th studio album, Fire It Up, released in April 2023 via Anthem Records. The album remains true to the country sound that has helped define his incredible career and includes the blazing title track Fire It Up. Also included on the album, is the Fall 2023 focus track, “Canadian Dirt,” a triumphant anthem about celebrating Canadian pride.

We have Gord available for phone and virtual interviews in the coming weeks and would love to set something up with you for Canadian Musician Magazine or for the CMM Podcast.

Australian-born and Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford, stands as one of the most decorated and awarded artists in Canadian country music history, with over 100 million streams and 5 billion audience impressions at radio globally. Over the past decade, he has built a loyal fanbase and has been the recipient of 26 Canadian Country Music Association Awards (CCMA) including Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Male Artist of the Year wins, along with receiving multiple JUNO Award nominations.

Beyond his musical accomplishments, Gord's generosity has left a huge mark on those around him. His small-town tour raised nearly $400,000 for local community service groups, fostering a spirit of giving back. Through the Gord Bamford Foundation, he has raised an astounding $5.4 million for Canadian children and youth, touching the lives of over 700,000 children and communities. Additionally, Gord's commitment to the industry's growth is evident through his monumental $200,000 donation to MusiCounts and CARAS.

Most recently, Gord secured a nomination for the 2023 CCMA Award in the "Musical Collaboration of the Year" category, recognizing his exceptional work on the previously released single “I Ain't Drunk,” featuring acclaimed country star Terri Clark. This remarkable collaboration found its place on Gord's album Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass (Deluxe Diamond Edition).
