On June 4th, multiple CMA and 26x CCMA Award winner Gord Bamford will release his brand-new album Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass via Anthem Records. As one of the most decorated country music artists in Canada, Bamford firmly remains at the helm of the genre as he releases new music next month.
Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass is the chart-topping entertainer’s highly anticipated 10th studio album, featuring 11 songs including the previously released single “Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass” and the current hit single, “Heaven On Dirt” which to date has been streamed nearly 1 million times globally and was the most added song at Canadian country radio upon its release.
“Diamonds In A Whiskey Glass is a collection of songs about heartbreak, life lessons and how they shape you. Personally, this album reminds me of so many memorable moments and lessons learned along the way as I was growing up. I’m really grateful to be where I am today, and I wouldn’t be here without the moments described in many of these songs.” – Gord Bamford
