    Australian-born and Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford stands as one of the most-decorated artists in Canadian country music.

    Gord Bamford has 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 Artist award. His distinctive sound and songwriting ability define Gord Bamford as one of country music’s best neo-traditional artists.

    Here is a video of Gord Bamford’s latest single “Dive Bar”, from his current album Neon Smoke, hits #1 on the Nielsen BDS Country Airplay Chart.

    Raised in rural Ontario, The Reklaws are comprised of the brother-sister duo Jenna and Stuart Walker.

    The pair has spent long hours in Nashville crafting their songs and their efforts have paid off as they came back with an infectious sound, with an authentic mix of pop and country and a “soundtrack-to-your-summer” vibe.

    Here is a video of the Reklaws lead single  “Long Live The Night”, which has been the most streamed song in all of Canadian country music released in 2018.

    The “Dome” at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Celebration Plaza is a heated facility and concerts are free to the public. Get out and enjoy some world class concerts during the 2019 Canada Winter Games.
