Raised on the farm, on the Canadian prairies, this award winning singer/songwriter is a champion of vanishing values and the frontier spirit. His western heritage, cattle drives, wagon treks and working folks with ties to the land have all been an inspiration for the lyrical imagery in his songs. In 2005, this Juno award winner was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
Gary still tours extensively and looks back on a rewarding career and gratefully acknowledges the many towns and cities and thousands of listeners who have been touched by his music. With his finger-style acoustic guitar, gentle vocals, colourful stories, Gary takes his western roots music to the people with a rare sincerity. His life-long love for Lynn, their four daughters and many grandchildren is illustrated in his songs.
