REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: "Introducing Johnny Reid" ENDS 4/15 (CLOSED)

"Introducing Johnny Reid" brings Canadian Country & Soul to America

The month of May will mark the release of a new album from Canadian artist Johnny Reid that is sure to have some folks in Nashville wondering where this singer has been hanging out before now.  Johnny Reid is one of the most successful artists to come out of Canada. This Scottish-born, Toronto-bred singer-songwriter regularly sells out 6,000 seat arenas in Canada and now he is bringing his unique sound to the U.S.

Johnny Reid has a very memorable voice. His voice is equal parts country and soul and the slight rasp of his voice makes his sound very unique - kind of reminds me of Joe Cocker.  His album "Introducing Johnny Reid"  (EMI/Manhattan Records) contains music that is both inspirational and heart warming.  I listened to his album as I was driving home from work and I found myself tapping my fingers on the steering wheel and singing along.  Even my son told me to turn up the music.  My favorite songs from the album include the inspirational "Today I'm Gonna Try and Change the World" and "Hands of a Working Man" which reminds us of the power of the working class.

Set You DVR for this Saturday 4/9
