To call George Canyon “accomplished” would be the understatement of the century. Throughout his career he has won many awards, Juno Awards, CCMA Awards, and ECMA Awards to name a few, for his music, has been inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame, recorded 12 albums, regularly performs all over the world, and has acted in a number of films, television shows, and stage plays. He is a highly regarded humanitarian, strong supporter of the military, and, most important, a proud father and devoted husband.
George Canyon’s latest album, released on May 25th, is titled Southside of Heaven. His twelfth studio album, George was overjoyed to once again work with producer Jeff Johnson on this project. The pair have collaborated on twelve brand new tracks including the current single, “Better Off In Love” and featuring wonderful renditions of Stompin’ Tom Connors’ “The Hockey Song” and Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Guthro’s masterpiece “Falling”, with Guthro stepping in to provide guest vocals.
