George Canyon:
He has sold over 300,000 albums and his critically acclaimed music continues to grow with every record. In 2008 multi-platinum artist and pop/rock icon Richard Marx signed on to produce Canyon's "What I Do” album. The record yielded 7 hit singles including "Just Like You", the album’s debut single, which was written for George's son, Kale. "I was driving my kids to school when the song came on the radio. Kale was in the backseat with his sister and I looked in the rear view mirror. He had the biggest smile on his face, but he didn't say a word. As a parent there is no better feeling than when your kid is speechless with joy." His young daughter, Madi got her own song too, which appeared George’s “Somebody Wrote Love” album (2006) "Madi's Song" continues to be one of Canyon's most requested cuts at his live shows.

Marx and Canyon teamed up again to write and record songs for the 2011 album "Better Be Home Soon." The enhanced digital version of the album includes songs written and co-written by the likes of Marx, Matt Scannell, Johnny Reid and Kenny Rogers. "I was honored when Richard phoned me to say that he and Kenny Rogers had written a song especially for me. It was one of those 'breathtaking moments' that I have been lucky enough to have a few of, in my career and life." And the song? "It's called 'When Love Is All You've Got'. Richard and I actually recorded it as a duet. It has a powerful message that resonates well in times of economic strife and we felt that it was a story that had to be told. We went deep with the songwriting in this record. There are some great ballads, but there are also a lot of fun tracks. I think it's important to achieve a balance on a record and take the listener through some peaks and valleys." says Canyon. “Better Be Home Soon” was certified Gold in April 2011, making this album his fastest selling album to date.

When George Canyon is performing live onstage, he is most at home. He has the entire audience in the palm of his hand and you just can’t help but want to be a part of his unique family. He is respected and well-loved and one of the most successful entertainers in the country today.
