Nashville, TN (November 29, 2010) An Alberta-raised country boy with a love for baseball and music, singer/songwriter Gord Bamford has immortalized Philadelphia Phillies' unanimously-voted 2010 Cy Young Award-winner Roy Halladay, baseball, brotherly love and more in a special, seasonal song. The Christmas single, titled "Baseball Glove," hits programmers' desks today via CDX Volume 1029 / December.
The traditional Western Swing, pedal steel-laced track brings a touch of summer back to the Christmas season. "I have always been a huge baseball fan, and I played a bit myself," says Gord. "It was fun to write a song about one of our great sports, and one of the game's greatest players."
Bamford's smooth tenor sails over one family's "wish list" and hammers home the importance of quality over quantity. The young boy's desire of a single baseball glove, signed by Halladay, is one that even "big boys" can understand.
