Ask your #MCM with George Canyon

This week’s #mancrushmonday is Canadian country legend and multiple JUNO Award winner George Canyon!
George recently released his 5th album I Got This via ole red dot.  Along with releasing the first single and title track to radio, Canyon has embarked on a multi-city, cross-Canada tour in support of the album – sharing new music with his faithful fans as well as classic crowd favourites. The “Jekyll and Nothing to Hide” tour kicked off in Calgary, AB on February 5th and will make stops from coast-to-coast.
A Nova Scotia native, Canyon was recently inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame and has been widely decorated with a number of accolades including multiple CCMA and ECMA Awards in addition to his multiple JUNO Award wins. As the national spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and a vocal advocate and supporter of the Canadian Military, Canyon was also presented with the CCMA “Humanitarian of the Year” Award in recognition of his philanthropic endeavours with both organizations. An exceptional role model and mentor – highly praised for supporting Canadian artists, Canyon has been and will continue to employ local support in each city on the tour to promote and nurture local talent.
I Got This marks Canyon’s eleventh full-length release in a career that spans nearly two decades. Past albums include his PLATINUM debut One Good Friend, along with several GOLD-certified albums, including Classics, Somebody Wrote Love and the Richard Marx produced Better Be Home Soon. With nearly 400,000 albums sold worldwide, multiple major acting roles on television, and the 2015 launch of his radio show Down East Country with George Canyon, the singer-songwriter has cemented his status as a bona fide multi-faceted artist and performer.
Check out George’s heartwarming thoughts on romance below, and bask in the glow of his deep love for his beautiful wife Jennifer.

What is your definition of romance?

Secretively making my wife her favorite supper , soft candlelight and some tunes playing in the background….  romance for me can be as simple as the soft kiss goodbye we share before I leave for tour.

What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?

The best date I was ever on was when I first met my wife…. I was terrified of screwing things up and I remember continually asking her if she was ok! In fact, I still do that today after 22 years of marriage !!!

What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?

I was told once to work every day on my relationship with my wife.  Even before we were married I tried to make certain to never take her for granted and work at doing something little everyday to ensure the foundation of our marriage was strong and stable

If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men out there, what would it be?

The one thing in life that we all take for granted at some point is our spouse. We get use to having them there all the time but she is the first thing you miss when they are no longer beside you. Don’t take them for granted. Love them everyday in everyday you can.
Describe your love life in one word

WOW !!!  Can i really be this lucky?
