ABOUT THE ACMA:
To develop, nurture and promote Alberta Country Music and its artists, and to support the Alberta Country Music Industry and its Alberta based companies.
On Feb 11, 2015. One day after our new album ‘RAMBLE’ drops across Canada.
Doors at 7PM, show starts at 8PM.
The only way in is to listen for the cue to call on KG Country 95.5 starting today.
This is gonna be good!
As a songwriter, and someone who aspires to be more of an all around writer, there is nothing quite as inspiring and full of potential as a fresh batch of Hilroy brand lined white paper, a finely sharpened #2 HB pencil(with eraser in tact), and a fresh brewed cup of black coffee poured into a tall, off white, ceramic mug. Ok, I may be slightly OCD. But aren’t we all.
A blank piece of paper; unfettered, non-judgemental, free to go wherever you want to take it. As is the start of a new day, and in this case, the start of a new year.
Regardless of how 2014 turned out for you. Good, bad, incredible, ugly. 2015 has yet to be written. We can fall into a rut of believing that who we are, where we are, and what we’re doing, is all there ever will be. This is not true. Even if last year was the best you’ve ever had, this year has even more in store.
But it takes effort, it takes intention, to accomplish new things, to chase new dreams.
For me, I’ve got to buy the paper, sharpen the pencil, grind the beans, brew the coffee, wash the mug, set my alarm, and get up early(it just so happens that my ‘best’ time is generally in the morning. When’s yours? Find out and be OK with it, regardless of when it is). Then, last but of course not least, I’ve got to put pencil to paper, and write.
I wish the same for you in 2015. No matter the instrument you choose, may you write something wonderful.
Happy New Year.
The first single off new album, “Ramble” (releasing early 2015)
Nominated for the 2014 Canadian Country Music Associations Group/Duo Of The Year
Produced by Gord Bamford
I can’t wait for people to hear this new music and sound from the Boom Chucka Boys. Its extremely fresh and real and sounds like nothing else on the radio. Their unique personalities, looks and outstanding talent will set them apart. I will go out on a limb, and say this may just be the best Canadian album put out by a group in a long time. I want to thank the boys for trusting in me to produce this record and for understanding the importance of writing, playing and performing music not only for ourselves but for our great country music fan base here in Canada. I truly hope that radio embraces this project with open arms. -Gord Bamford
