One Handsome Cowboy - George Canyon

A couple of week-ends ago, I worked an event where this man was the headline entertainment.

A down home Canadian originally from the province of Nova Scotia, his career and love story is definitely one of romance novels.

Originally employed as an IT, he worked his butt off for nine years to still do singing gigs in a country rock band while providing for his wife and two children. When the band broke up, he decided to return to a normal life. According to his bio, his wife said, "Nuh-uh!" and encouraged him to go solo. In 2003, he auditioned on Nashville Star and nearly won. Eventually, he signed with RCA records and recorded
in Nashville. And the rest is history....

If you haven't heard of him - well I'm proud to be called a Canadian alongside this burning hunk
of man!

And if you haven't heard his voice yet - click on the link to hear him sing a cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire". *swoon*


  1. Ohhhh, Kellie, I love! He's gorgeous and has one smooth husky voice. I love his story and how his wife supports his singing career. It's so nice to hear such wonderful stories like his. Thanks for sharing this gem with us, sweetie.

    JD :)

  2. What a great story. That is good that he stuck with it. Plus he is very easy on the eyes. Good post, Kellie!

  3. Glad you like ladies! He is one hunky cowboy and he's Canadian - like me! We do have such talent from our country :D LOL

  4. Super post, Kellie. I love true stories like that! I haven't heard him sing, I don't think, but oh, my, he looks great. :)

  5. Wow! What a hottie and talented too. Great post, Kellie! Gotta love a woman who makes her man shine or vice versa, of course.

  6. Thanks Barb and Cherie! If you click on the link you can hear his voice :)

  7. Very handsome man!! Thanks for the post :)

  8. Oh jeeze louise, he's purty, and my people stopped off in Nova Scotia once upon a time, except it was called Acadia back then. Thus...we became Acadians....and of course that got butchered to Cajuns. But, I digress...He is trully delicious to look at, and though the link doesn't work for me, I will def check him out. You know I love my country music and those cowboys do it better!
    Love ya, lil Angel.
