About George Canyon

Canadian country music legend George Canyon is continually melding his love of family with his passion for music. His integrity and dedication to his family are reflected through the songs he writes and the stories he tells. A multi-Juno award winner and platinum selling artist, Canyon’s latest album I Got This finds him back in the saddle; a culmination of two years of writing, and working with incredibly talented writers, producers and musicians. Showing no signs of slowing down, Canyon had a 40-date run of the “Jekyll and Nothing To Hide” 2016 cross Canada tour. I Got This debuted as the No. 1 Canadian Country album at its time of release, and held the top spot for five weeks. I Got This marks Canyon’s 11th full-length release in a career that spans nearly two decades.
