Country Music Star George Canyon to Perform Twice in Spruce Grove

After Selling Out his September 28 Concert Horizon Stage Adds a Second Show on September 29

It only took two weeks for all 300 seats at George Canyon’s Horizon Stage concert on Saturday, September 28 to sell. Now the theatre is pleased to announce that the popular and personable country music singer has agreed to add a second show for eager fans. Tickets are now on sale for his Spruce Grove concert on Sunday, September 29 at 7:30 p.m.

With a voice as rich and robust as a strong cup of coffee, George Canyon is a Canadian country music treasure. Though he can melt hearts with just a tip of his hat, Canyon sings with the kind of integrity and dedication that makes him a hero to his fans on and off the stage. So much so, that he was recognized for his philanthropic work in support of the Canadian troops in 2008 by being appointed Honorary Colonel for the Canadian Air Force at 14 Wing Greenwood in Nova Scotia. He is also a tireless advocate for juvenile diabetes awareness and research and  most recently he has been working hard both on the ground in High River, and on stage, cleaning up and raising funds for southern Alberta flood relief.

 In addition to his singing career, Canyon has performed as an actor in movies and television where he had re-occurring roles on both the Trailer Park Boys and Heartland. But it’s his amazing ability to pen both poignant ballads and night-on-the-town tunes that has won him countless Junos, East Coast Music Awards, and Canadian Country Music Awards. With hits like “Just Like You”, “In Your Arms Again”, “My Name”, and “I Believe In Angels”, it’s easy to see why he was recently recognized as the most played Canadian artist on Canadian country radio. George is currently in the running for the CCMA Fan’s Choice of the Year Award and was recently added to their awards night artist performance list.

 When George Canyon is performing onstage, he is most at home. He has the entire audience in the palm of his hand and you just can’t help but want to be a part of his unique family. He is respected, well-loved and one of the most successful entertainers in Canada today. So shine up your boots and get ready to enjoy country music at its finest!
