With Special Guest Aaron Goodvin

International country music star and Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. recording artist Gord Bamford announces the 2018 NEON SMOKE Tour.  The expansive 29 date Canadian tour hits markets large and small from coast to coast before heading to Australia the following week for a string of shows.  For the NEON SMOKE tour, Gord Bamford has invited Warner Music Canada breakout artist Aaron Goodvin to come along and beat on his “Lonely Drum”.

Gord Bamford continues to work toward delivering the best in country music. With 22 Top-10 singles in Canada, including the #1 smash hitWhen Your Lips Are So Close” from his 6th studio album “Country Junkie”, Gord has a deep history of creating the songs country music fans want to hear.  2018’s “Neon Smoke” continues Gord’s prolific song writing.  The album’s debut single, 2017’s summer anthem “Livin’ On Summertime”, broke the Top 10 on the Canadian Country music charts.  The follow up single “Ain’t It Grand” saw Gord Bamford joining Blue Rodeo’s charismatic front man Jim Cuddy to duet on this catchy, fun and ultra-Canadian gem.  “Ain’t it Grand” debuted on the 2017 CCMA Award’s on September 10, in Saskatoon and is currently racing up the country radio charts.  Fans can catch new songs from “Neon Smoke” performed on the tour.

“Each time I set out to make a new record my goal is to make the best record of my career and stay true to what has got me to where I am today” says Bamford.  “I’ve had the opportunity of a lifetime making people all over the world sing, dance, laugh, cry & love through the power of song.  I shake my head every day with the thought that I actually get to support my family doing what I love.  I have watched the business change over the years and I am proud to present my best record yet.  “Neon Smoke” is not just a single or an EP, it’s a 16-song album that will take the listener on a musical journey.”
