After the Canadian Country Music Awards this past Sunday, Lacombe country artist Gord Bamford can add three new accolades to his name.

Bamford took three awards at the CCMAs including Single of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Country Music Program or Special of the Year.

“It never gets old to win an award,” said Bamford. “It makes you realize that the fans, Canadian country radio and the industry are watching what you’re doing and that they approve. I am having the time of my life and feel that my music is just getting started. Once again, I’m humbled by this recognition.”

Country Junkie, the sixth studio album from Bamford was launched in October of last year and received a Juno award nomination for Country Album of the Year in March. It also garnered Bamford his first ever number one single When Your Lips Are So Close. The album debuted in the number one spot on the Nielsen Soundscan Top Country Albums Chart. Bamford co-wrote 13 of the 14 songs on the album and produced it with legendary Nashville-based songwriter Byron Hill.

“Gord Bamford is an amazingly astute example of an artist who sets creative goals, fully understands how much work is involved and then goes for it,” said Hill. “He leads the way with boundless energy, enthusiasm and creativity in every aspect of his career as an artist and as a person.”
