Gord Bamford states, “It was pretty surreal to hear we had the most adds in Canada this year. I think it’s the best music of my career and it feels great when you have the full support of a record label behind your vision. I have to thank Sony Music Canada for the hard work they have put it in on this project so far. Radio has always been good to me. I have many people to thank across the country who continue to support my music, I am very grateful for that support. This is just the start of a new project I’m working on and I’m looking forward to carrying this momentum into more releases later this year. Expect the next single in the fall”

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.
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 has introduced “#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 perform the track “#REDNEK” to his massive, dedicated fan base as the headlining act at festivals this summer.
