With 22 Top-10 singles in Canada, including the #1 smash hit “When Your Lips Are So Close” from his 6th studio album “Country Junkie”, Gord has a deep history of creating the songs country music fans want to hear. 2018’s “Neon Smoke” continues Gord’s prolific songwriting.

I shake my head every day with the thought that I actually get to support my family doing what I love. I have watched the business change over the years and I am proud to present my best record yet. “Neon Smoke” is not just a single or an EP, it’s a 16-song album that will take the listener on a musical journey.”
