A quick conversation between Gord Bamford and Jim Cuddy while lacing up their skates for the 2017 JUNO Awards “JUNO CUP” hockey game was embryonic in setting the stage for this symbolic single. It was a quick question from Gord “Would you want to sing on one of my songs?” Cuddy’s simple response was “sure”. 3 months later a supplementary call was made and Jim Cuddy was in. What followed was the making of a single wrapped with perfect illustrations of life in Canada . The song captures Jim Cuddy’s instantly recognisable vocal nuances and pairs them perfectly with Gord’s classic country delivery.
“To sing with Jim Cuddy is surreal,” says Bamford, “If you told me when I started my career I would be singing a song with Jim Cuddy I would not have believed you. He is someone I have admired for a long time.”
