– Today, Canadian Country star George Canyon is pleased to announce he is taking his new album, Southside of Heaven, on the road this fall with the ‘Made In Canada’ Tour. Kicking off in Canyon’s hometown of Pictou, NS, on November 1, he will make 12 stops across Canada finishing in Calgary, AB, on November 17. Also announced, Canyon’s next single from Southside of Heaven, “Bring It On”, will be released to radio on September 3rd.
“I was born in the greatest country in the world…Canada, I met my wife in the greatest country in the world…Canada, we raised our kids in the greatest country in the world…Canada, and when I die they will bury me in the greatest country in the world…Canada,” said George Canyon. “I am made in Canada!”
Released earlier this year, Southside of Heaven features the Top 40 Canadian Country radio hits “More You” and the second single “Better Off In Love”, written by prolific hit songwriter Brett Jones (Justin Moore, Jason Aldean). Currently wrapping a successful run of summer festival dates including Big Valley Jamboree, Sunfest, Lucknow Music In The Fields and The Gathering, Canyon shows no signs of slowing down.
With countless accolades including multiple JUNO, CCMA and ECMA Awards and his induction to the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame, Canyon has released 12 albums with multiple Top 10 Canadian Country radio singles, and to date, Canyon has achieved nearly 7 million total streams. Canyon has also spent time in front of the camera with roles on the hit television shows “Heartland”, “The Trailer Park Boys” and Hallmark’s highest rated original movie “One Starry Christmas”. Most recently Canyon hit the stage as the Teen Angel in the Toronto production of “Grease: The Musical”.
Highly regarded as a humanitarian for his work with the Canadian Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Canyon is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Armed Forces. His many trips overseas to perform for our troops led him to be appointed an Honorary Colonel for the Canadian Air Force and be awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for all of his charitable work.
