‘’Gord Bamford has always delivered award-winning songs that we all can relate to but this new single ‘’One Heartbeat From Heaven'' is pure heart,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine, radio host, and host of the International Music's Journey Podcast.
This song touches audiences young and older in a way that is powerful and life-changing with an impact I have not seen in a long time. It is truly a song that will last the test of time. There are so many interpretations that I have heard from fans all over the world of what this song stands for to them. It is a song that every artist dreams to have in their catalog.
I had the chance to sit down and chat in-depth with Gord Bamford to talk about his life, lessons learned along the way, the drive behind his music and charity foundation, the gift of this new song, and his new 12 studio album ‘’Fire It Up'' coming out on April 28th via Anthem Records.''

“I Ain’t Drunk” is a collaboration with CCMA Hall of Famer Terri Clark.
On collaborating with Terri Clark on the single, Bamford shares,
“If I sat down and made a list of the greats in country music, Terri Clark would be right at the top for me. With endless class and timeless songs, she has paved the path for many of us in the industry and I’m certain she will continue to do that for many folks aspiring to get into the business.”
Terri Clark adds,
“When Gord asked me to sing on “I Ain’t Drunk” I jumped at the opportunity to sing with one of Canada’s finest and true country singers. I’m excited for the fans to hear the song and look forward to us one day performing it live on stage.”
