Stompin’ Tom started his career in 1964, overcoming a life of poverty and hard knocks to become the revered recording artist he is today. As an officer of The Order of Canada, he has also been honored with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, The Governor General’s Performing Arts Award and SOCAN’s Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as being the recipient of three Doctorates from the Universities of St. Thomas in Fredericton, UPEI in Charlottetown and U. of T. in Toronto, respectively. He has also written two autobiographies – the first of which was a No. 1 best-seller and has been honored to be the first Canadian Country Music Artist to have his image portrayed on the face of a Canadian Postage Stamp. To date, he has written over 300 songs, over half of which are specifically about Canada, and this New album continues this great tradition.
