The albums 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 frontman 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 10th, in Saskatoon and is currently racing up the country radio charts.
