Open Road Recordings has decided to give back to Canada with their 15 Acts of Kindness initiative. Open Road Recordings was founded in 2003 by music veteran Ron Kitchener and is approaching a 15-year anniversary milestone this September 2018. To celebrate this special anniversary Open Road Recordings plans to give back to causes that resonate with the Canadian music industry and current artists on their roster.
Open Road Recordings has helped launch the career of many Canadian artists and accumulated a successful archive of more than 100 Top 10 hits over the years. Presently they have four Top 15 singles on the Mediabase Country Chart including; Tim Hicks “Loud,” Hunter Brothers “Those Were The Nights,” Dean Brody “Good Goodbye,” and Madeline Merlo “Neon Love.”
Their 15 Acts of Kindness initiative will lead right into the Canadian Country Music Association Awards week in Hamilton, ON. A wide range of causes and campaigns have been selected for an act of kindness. Each week leading up to the CCMA Awards on Sunday, September 9, 2018, one cause will be selected and receive one of their Acts of Kindness. Some of this month’s Acts of Kindness include creating 50 care packages for the Red Door Shelter, supporting and attending the first day of the London Girls Rock Camp, and participating in Paul Brandt’s #NotInMyCity campaign which was launched to combat Child Sexual Exploitation and Sex Trafficking.

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.
