Event Description

"My life is a country song."

When Theo Fleury says that, it's hard to argue. From his small-town upbringing to the heights of hockey glory, from the depths of sexual abuse and alcoholism to his current health and happiness, the Canadian icon's 47 years come packed with enough triumph and tragedy to inspire not just a single song but an entire album.

That's exactly what they've become. I Am Who I Am, out October 23 on eOne Music Canada, finds the NHL superstar, Olympic gold medal winner, best-selling author, motivational speaker and entrepreneur tackling a new game: Country singer-songwriter. And it's a more natural fit than you might expect.

"I know that when people hear that Theo Fleury made a country album, they'll go, ‘Well … OK,' " he laughs. "And I wouldn't say I'm the greatest singer in the world, but I'm a real singer. But I have a decent voice. I grew up around music. I'm a Metis person and music is really part of our DNA. Some of my fondest memories as a kid were listening to my grandfather play the fiddle. My dad sang and played guitar, my uncle sang and played the guitar. Music was always a huge part of any gathering we had as a family. And it was all country stuff, you know — Charley Pride, Buck Owens, Hank Snow, all those old guys. So that became my favourite genre of music. And making music was always in the back of my mind."
