The Canadian Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year, Global Artist of the Year, and recipient of Single of the Year, Gord Bamford, recently made the move to Nashville to embark on an American journey in his musical career. This weekend, Gord’s award-winning single, “When Your Lips Are So Close,” made its mark on Sirius XM The Highway’s On the Horizon, further introducing the crooner with a tremendous Canadian fan base to the United States.
“When Your Lips Are So Close” is a lustful tune that shares the struggle of physical distance and desires. The lyrics tend to support the difficulties one can experience when wanting somebody at a time and place that is simply inopportune for them both. The chorus explains:
Girl, I wanna reach right out, wrap you in my arms right now, never let go, never let go. ‘Cause I just gotta taste you, baby, you know it drives me crazy to be so far away when your lips are so close, when your lips are so close.
Through this moderately slow tempo song, Gord spotlights the deep and smooth vocals that have won the hearts of fans in his native country, showing that his talent is a viable commodity for international radio play, as well. We are excited to welcome Sony recording artist Gord Bamford to the United States, especially his new hometown of Nashville, and can’t wait to see the impact he makes on the industry here.
