Toronto, ON (October 1, 2021) – Multiple CMA and 26x CCMA Award winner Gord Bamford proves you don’t need much to be happy with his latest single release - sometimes all it takes is a good ole “Drink Along Song” (Anthem Records). The latest single from one of the most decorated country music artists in Canada, “Drink Along Song” is the first new release following Bamford’s 10th studio album that featured 11 new songs including the hit single ‘Heaven On Dirt’, which to date has been streamed over 3.5 million times.

“The last 18 months has been trying for us all,” shares Bamford. “Making music is one of the only ways I got through this challenging time. Sometimes life gets tough, and we forget to enjoy the simple things. This song is my reminder to have fun!”
Following his own time-tested formula for nearly two decades while bolstering 85 million streams and 5 billion audience impressions at radio, Bamford continues to make country music that appeals to fans around the world. The Australian-born, Alberta-raised neo-traditional artist delivers another anthemic track that blends a hard-charging party anthem with a good-natured feel that salutes the days of easy living and a sing-along chorus.
Bamford is the inaugural host of Anthem Entertainment’s first-of-its-kind audio/visual music-focused broadcast and podcast series Real Country Livin’. The series will showcase some of the world’s best and brightest country artists and songwriters as they each share their own Real Country Livin’ story and define what Real Country Livin’ means to them. With Bamford leading the charge, the innovative series will launch with six themed episodes including Entertainin’, Fishin’, Farmin’, Givin’, Boatin’, and Drinkin’ that help guide the narrative as he introduces audiences to his family and friends and their Real Country Livin’ way of life.
