Country recording artist and CCMA Spotlight Artist Winner Cory Gallant will be making his debut appearance at the Diamonds in the Rough Showcase presented by Sirroma Entertainment and held at the Metropolitan Grill in Calgary, Alberta.
About Cory Gallant:
Cory completed an international tour in May 2019 with dates in British Columbia as well as Washington and Oregon state, including a sold-out show in Ashcroft, BC.
His single “We Both Bleed” was released nationwide to Canadian radio stations on May 27 and digitally on June 4. On May 28, 2019, “We Both Bleed” was the number one downloaded song to Canadian radio stations and on May 30,2019 was still in the top three most downloaded songs.
The song was written by Nashville artist Chris Janson and Emmy Award winning songwriter Trey Bruce. The eleven-song all-original album, Welcome to My World, will be released later in the spring and includes “That’s Love,” a duet with Georgette Jones (daughter of George Jones and Tammy Wynette).
Cory’s rich, soul-filled vocals helped gain him national exposure when he became the winner of the 2018 CCMA National Spotlight Performance Contest. Despite hailing from the smallest province in Canada, Prince Edward Island, Cory still received the largest number of fan votes to win the contest. This led to a performance at the Legends Show in Hamilton, Ontario for Canadian Country Music Week, sharing the stage with Chad Brownlee, Terri Clark, Aaron Goodvin, Charlie Major, Jason McCoy, JJ Shiplett, Patricia Conroy and Michelle Wright.
About Diamonds in the Rough:
Diamonds in the Rough Stage was created in 2012 being held in Saskatoon, Sask during Canadian Country Music Week. The vision for this stage came about from watching artists aimlessly wander with no sense of direction during Canadian Country Music week. We felt there was a need to give these artists a direction. This was a stage where they could be seen and heard. Every artist deserves the opportunity to be visible while developing their craft. We believe that every artist given the correct tools and opportunities, will achieve individual success.
Canada has many talented artists looking for opportunities to perform and share their music. Sirroma Entertainment feels that giving artists an opportunity to perform during this prestige week, will contribute to the contentment of artists, reassuring them that their contribution to the Canadian Country Music Industry is appreciated.
