National League Cy Young Award Winner, Roy Halladay, Immortalized In Song By Canadian Singer/Songwriter Gord Bamford

Special Seasonal Song, “Baseball Glove,”
Available Now On CDX Vol. 1029

Nashville, TN–An Alberta-raised country boy with a love for baseball and music, singer/songwriter Gord Bamford has immortalized Philadelphia Phillies’ unanimously-voted 2010 Cy Young Award-winner Roy Halladay, baseball, brotherly love and more in a special, seasonal song. The Christmas single, titled “Baseball Glove,” hits programmers’ desks today via CDX Volume 1029 / December.

The traditional Western Swing, pedal steel-laced track brings a touch of summer back to the Christmas season. “I have always been a huge baseball fan, and I played a bit myself,” says Gord. “It was fun to write a song about one of our great sports, and one of the game’s greatest players.”

Bamford’s smooth tenor sails over one family’s “wish list” and hammers home the importance of quality over quantity. The young boy’s desire of a single baseball glove, signed by Halladay, is one that even “big boys” can understand.

“BROTHER WANTS SOME WHEELS FOR HIS PICK-UP

SISTER WANTS A TRIP TO CANCUN

DADDY WANTS A NEW SET OF GOLF CLUBS

MAMA WANTS A GOLD NECKLACE

ALL I WANT FROM SANTA IS

A GENUINE COWHIDE

RAWLINGS PRO SPECIAL

ONE AUTOGRAPHED BY ROY HALLADAY

IF THAT’S ALL I’VE GOT

NEATH THE TREE CHRISTMAS MORNING

ONE GIFT WILL SURE BE ENOUGH

IF I GET A NEW BASEBALL GLOVE”- Gord Bamford / Byron Hill
