The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION (CMA) has given GORD BAMFORD the 2013 CMA Global Country Artist Award. BAMFORD received the award during the CCMA Gala Dinner on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6th in EDMONTON, CANADA.
The Global Country Artist Award is given in recognition of outstanding achievements by a Country artist originally signed outside of the UNITED STATES. This is the first win for a CANADIAN artist since 2006.
"As a CANADIAN Country music artist, it's an incredible honor to receive the CMA's Global Country Artist Award," stated BAMFORD. "To receive this recognition from CMA, the NASHVILLE music community, and the CMA international membership is something every artist dreams of, and I'd have to tell you honestly, I'm feeling an overwhelming sense of humble accomplishment not just for myself, but for all those who play my music, come to my shows, and work behind the scenes."
BAMFORD earned Male Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year for "When Your Lips Are So Close" at this year's CCMA AWARDS, bringing his total to 18 since 2008.
