With Gord Bamford as the inaugural host, the innovative series will launch with six themed episodes including Entertainin’, Fishin’, Farmin’, Givin’, Boatin’, and Drinkin’ that help guide the narrative as Bamford introduces audiences to his family and friends and their Real Country Livin’ way of life.
