Fall In Love If You Want To
Hello! I’m Camo, one of the hosts of Nashville Access. This week’s pick comes from a truly international artist. Gord Bamford was born in Australia, grew up in Canada, and recently moved to Nashville. I’ve been a fan of Gord’s for a number of years. “Fall In Love If You Want To” is the latest single from Gord’s latest album, “Tin Roof.”
Written by Gord, with Phil O’Donnell and Wade Kirby, “Fall In Love If You Want To” has a more contemporary country instrumentation in order to fit into the soundscape of today’s country radio, but Gord’s hard-core country vocals bring it back into the more traditional sound. It also sits nicely in the middle of the fifteen tracks on the album.
Gord recently played a couple of dates in Switzerland, and his music is no stranger to radio, and country fans around the world. He recently played a couple of dates in Mexico, and in March, heads off to Australia to play the CMC Rocks Festival. If you’ve never listened to Gord Bamford before, this song is an excellent introduction to his music—and I’m pretty sure that it will further add to his awards collection in Canada.
Have a great week—and thanks for reading!
