“Heard You in a Song” Goes to Radio January 20
(Friday, January 15, 2016 – Toronto, ON) – Celebrated Country Music artist Gord Bamford announced today his impressive seventh studio album, Tin Roof, is set for release April 8, 2016 with Sony Music Entertainment Canada. The 15 track album is now available for pre-order here, and fans who do pre-order Tin Roof will automatically receive an instant download of the first single “Don’t Let Her Be Gone,” and second single “Heard You in a Song.” The reigning CCMA ‘Male Artist of the Year’ wrote on 12 tracks for the album and collaborated with distinguished songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr, George Strait).
“Gord and I had a great time making this album together and I think that comes through in the music,” said O’Donnell. We both come from a tradition of classic and strong country songs that can pull at your heart, make you smile, or tear you up inside, and hopefully the fans will feel that emotion in these songs.”
The second single from Tin Roof, “Heard You in a Song,” will be released to radio January 20, 2016, in time for Gord’s Ontario shows this month. Gord will also be doing a coast- to-coast Canadian co-headline tour with Joe Nichols.

I’m looking forward to getting out on the road and playing this new material live for the great country fans across Canada.”
