We’ve posted it before – we will post it again… here at Sea and be Scene WE LOVE GORDIE SAMPSON!!!!
And we’re not alone in that emotion when it comes to the Cape Breton born hit maker. Based in Nashville it’s no surprise the singer songwriter who co-wrote the Grammy winning “Jesus Take the Wheel” for Carrie Underwood would continue to add to his string of singles and cuts for stars like Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton to name but a few. Underwood has again recorded one of his tunes – this time on her chart topping, platinum selling CD “Blown Away”. That song “Leave Love Alone” was co-written with Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges.
The video features another amazing tune Gordie co-wrote with Hillary Lindsey – “Fear of Flying” can be found on his latest solo project “ALMOST BEAUTIFUL” which won the 2012 ECMA award for Country Recording of the Year… stellar stuff that!
A little over a month ago Gordie was recognized for co-writing some of the most performed country songs of the year at the 50th annual American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Country Music Awards, winning the Most Performed Song Award for “Storm Warning,” which he co-wrote with Mike Busbee and Hunter Hayes – which Hayes recorded for his debut disc.
Back here at home Gordie has been a huge mentor and inspiration to the next generation of songwriters – through his Gordie Sampson Song Camp and sharing the stage those same new artists.
Speaking of concerts – Gordie will be back in Nova Scotia for the holiday season – spending time with his family and, fortunately for us fans, playing up a storm. Don’t miss the man in action while he’s in the homeland….
