It’s always an awesome day when I can chat with today’s guest so when I heard he was heading East to play the Memorial Cup StreetFest in Halifax on May 25th – I knew we were due for a catch-up. Australian Born/Alberta Based mega award-winning Canadian Country Singer/Songwriter Gord Bamford is a kindred spirit of the finest kind – his near 20-year career includes tons of top 10’s 2 #1 hits and touring all over the world. His humble nature and generous spirit are as endearing as his incredible stream of marvellous music – indeed there’s plenty of stellar stuff to talk about including his forthcoming album, his talented family and the millions of dollars he’s raised through his charitable foundation – plus we’ll get to 1st Things Frist and play a long overdue round of Insights IN 10 and naturally play as much his amazing music as we can throughout the hour – so without further ado – here’s my conversation with the one and only Gord Bamford.
