After the successful release of two stellar country albums; Passion Country (2010) and Inspiration Country (2015), Guylaine Tanguayreleases her latest album of country classics and toe-tapping originals appropriately titled Classique Country (10 June 2016). Classique Country was produced entirely in the country music capitol of Nashville, Tennessee. Available everywhere music is sold in stores and online; Classique Country is a great lineup of some of the best country classics and original music showcasing Tanguay’s strong and powerful voice.
Classique Country contains brand new renditions of beloved country classics and standards such as; “Ring of Fire” (Johnny Cash), “I Will Always Love You” (Dolly Parton), “Release Me” (Ray Price), “Act Naturally” (Buck Owens), “Jackson” ft. Tommy Cash (Johnny & June Cash), “Always on my Mind” (Elvis Presley), and “Jolene” (Parton).
Hailing from Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec Tanguay stays true to her French-Canadian roots on Classique Country by including “Vole colombe,” “Il m’a montré à Yodler,” “S’il n’y avait plus de lendemain,” “Un coin du ciel,” and the debut single from Classique Country, “Danse avec moi” to the track list. “Danse avec moi” was written by Nelson Minville, Gilles Godard (Terri Clark), Will Mack and Mark Trail, the song is definitely a great summer song and lead single for Classique Country.

Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
