Niagara Falls-born multi-platinum, award winning country star Tim Hicks kicked off the National Hockey League season with an amplified performance last weekend.
Capping off an amazing year, country music’s everyman – Hicks received his 6th GOLD award for the hit song “Stompin’ Ground” presented by veteran broadcaster Ron MacLean and co-host Tara Sloan (video below) during the Rogers Hometown Hockey celebration. In addition, Hicks received a GOLD award for his debut album Throw Down.
“This has been one of those years you wait for your entire life,” said Hicks “To the fans and everyone who came to see me play, spent their hard-earned money to buy an album, single, t-shirt, concert ticket and more, you’ve made this an unforgettable journey.”
Hicks’ latest single “Forever Rebels” – the fourth hit from his top selling album “Shake These Walls” (Open Road Recordings/Universal Music Canada), is currently climbing the charts at country radio.
Hicks debuted the song which he says, “is about standing up in the face of adversity, and not being afraid to follow your own path even when everyone around you is telling you you’ll never get to where you’re going,” during the national broadcast of the 2017 CCMA Awards in Saskatoon this past September.
Celebrating two PLATINUM selling singles, 6 GOLD singles and one GOLD album with his long-time label Open Road Recordings, the 2014 CCMA Rising Star Award winner and two-time JUNO Award nominee, has proven he has as much momentum as any artist in the business – demonstrating once again that Hicks is by the very definition “a triple threat” – writing top 10 hits, achieving Gold and Platinum single/album certifications and selling concert tickets.
After an amazing summer spent tirelessly touring across the country, playing to capacity crowds, including a return to Ottawa Bluesfest as direct support for the late Tom Petty, one of Hicks’ musical heroes, a stop at Dauphin Countryfest, Cavendish Beach Music Festival and Sunfest, Hicks capped off the festival season with an incredible showing as direct support to Dean Brody at the iconic Budweiser Stage on August 24.
The show saw Hicks bring his compelling stage presence and explosive energy to downtown Toronto, creating unforgettable moments for a country starved city and setting the bar for a memorable night.
Announced earlier this year, Hicks will bring the Shake These Walls Tour to Quebec for six headlining dates in January and February, 2018.
