Multiple CMA and CCMA Award winner Gord Bamford releases his new single today, “Heaven On Dirt” (Anthem Records). The “home is where your heart is a power ballad” embraces Country storytelling and reflects on the feeling of finding your true joy in life. Penned by Jason Lee Owens, Jr., Philip Eugene O’Donnell, Casey Beathard and Jenee Fleenor “Heaven On Dirt” projects a signature sound that has previously elevated Bamford to the top of the Country singles chart and is a glimpse of what’s to come off of his forthcoming new album due out this summer.
“I have always been a guy that goes off of my instincts and gut feelings. This was written by some of my favourite hit songwriters, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to record it.”n This type of song only comes along once in a lifetime, so I hope you all love it as much as I do.” – Gord Bamford
