Co-written by award winning, singer-songwriter Buddy Owens, who has penned massive hits with various A-list artists including Bamford (“Leanin’ on a Lonesome Song”, “Where a Farm Used to Be”), “#REDNEK” is a destined to be a certified smash. Proudly referencing everything (almost) that defines the term redneck, Bamford adds another gem to his ever-increasing canon of hit country songs.
Gord Bamford relates, “I have written hundreds of songs throughout my career, but this one might be the best I have penned. Buddy and I definitely dialed it up on #REDNEK”. It took us about an hour to write, which is rare. When the final mix came we were pretty excited. It’s a song you’re going to want to crank up.”
Smoking, drinking, grilling, tractors, NASCAR, pontoon boats, hunting, cut off shorts and camos all get the nod in “#REDNEK”, a story of a modern redneck couple who can mix it up with high society, yet still stay true to their country roots. Look for the accompanying “#REDNEK” music video later this summer.
To accompany the release of the single Bamford will introduce “#REDNEK”, a hashtag created to develop a unique platform for people who relate to the song to be able to share their version of what being a “#REDNEK is all about through social media.
Gord Bamford, one of Canadian Country Music’s most decorated artists, will introduce the track “#REDNEK” to his massive, dedicated fan base as the headlining act at festivals this summer.
