When you think Canada, you can’t help but think of the man who sang of the great land itself in many a song. Songs such as Tilsonburg, The Hockey Song, Sudbury Saturday Night and My Stompin’ Grounds have truly made Stompin Tom Connors the legend that he is.
Now in time to celebrate Canada’s 150th, Anthem Records is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of one of Canada’s most prolific and iconic artists, Stompin’ Tom Connors. June 30th sees the release of the Stompin’ Tom Connors 50th Anniversary self-titled CD. In association with Canada 150 and an introduction from NHL Legend and Hockey Hall of Famer Ken Dryden, this special edition release will include all of Stompin’ Tom’s timeless classics. The album also features four new renditions from notable Canadian Country stars including; The Cuddy/Polley Family Band, Corb Lund, George Canyon and Whiskey Jack.
“We’re extremely excited and proud to release this Stompin’ Tom Connors collector’s set, said Andy Curran, formerly of Coney Hatch and who is A&R’ing the project at Anthem Records. “We’ve managed to assemble a collector’s edition that will satisfy the most loyal fan but also to excite a new generation of fans as these great songs really transcend generations and speak to all Canadians.”
