Gord Bamford accomplishes what many hope to do with two #1 hits now under his belt and a #1 hit in Australia

Canadian country music star and Platinum-selling Sony Music Entertainment Canada recording artist Gord Bamford is celebrating today. His latest single “Dive Bar,” from his current album Neon Smoke, hit #1 on the Nielsen BDS Country Airplay Chart. Written by award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Tebey, ”Dive Bar” joins Bamford’s previous #1 single, “When Your Lips are so Close” (November 2013) from his Country Junkie album released in October 2015.

Says Bamford of this very impressive milestone,

“This is a huge day! Thanks to Canadian Country radio for all the support and dedication on getting this to #1. Great songs still do win I guess, so thanks to John, Ole´ and Tebey for the song. I want to thank Sony Music Canada and Warren Copnick for a fantastic job on “Dive Bar.”

Bamford has received some other great years as well. He recently found out that his single, “Neon Smoke” and the video accompanying it, is not only loved by his Canadian fans but also his fans in Australia, as it hit #1 on the CMC charts in there. Why does this mean so much to Bamford? Well, Australia is where Bamford was born and lived until the age of 5. He is also embarking on a nine-city Australian tour beginning on September 28 before he returns to Canada for his Honkytonks & Dive Bar Tour – a tour that is quickly selling out.
