TORONTO, ON (June 19, 2020) – Just in time for Father’s Day weekend, multiple CCMA and CMA award-winning entertainer Gord Bamford today released the touching song and heartfelt accompanying live music video “Father’s Prayer” via Anthem Records. The timely new track is a sentimental tribute inspired in part by Bamford’s own relationship with his children Nash, Paisley and Memphis Bamford and the unconditional love and connection he shares with them.
“This song gives me chills every time I hear it,” shares Bamford. “As a father of three, it reminds me of the most important thing in my life and that’s getting to be a role model for my children - supporting and watching them grow as they chase their dreams and find their path. I hope everyone loves this song as much as I do and Happy Father’s Day to all.”

“When I first heard ‘Father’s Prayer’ it brought tears to my eyes,” shares Anthem Entertainment CEO, Helen Murphy. “It draws out all of the emotions that are felt by so many on Father’s Day when thinking about and celebrating their father figures and it captures the very essence of the day beautifully.”
This Sunday, June 21, Bamford will debut a special performance of “Father’s Prayer” nationwide during “Gord Bamford’s Real Country Livin’ Father’s Day Special” – an innovative 60-minute music-based broadcast, podcast and live stream devoted to Father’s Day. Executive produced by Anthem Entertainment and directed by Frank Licari, the star-studded special will be broadcast across Canada at 10 a.m. local time on PURE COUNTRY stations, iHeartRadio.ca and Pure Country Radio’s YouTube channel.
With the support of presenting sponsors Kubota Canada and Peavey Industries, the special will raise money for The Gord Bamford Foundation and various youth-based charities across Canada. Since 2014, Bamford and the Gord Bamford Foundation have raised over $4,000,000 in support of multiple charities across Canada. With a passion for supporting youth-based programs, the Foundation provides funds for initiatives that include music, education, health care, sports and multi-use facilities that benefit youth across Canada.
