Country music artist Jason McCoy appears in Campbell River Wednesday

Jason is the real McCoy

Armed with a guitar and a dream, McCoy set out at the age of 19 to follow his own path to stardom

As a 25 year veteran of the entertainment industry, and two time CCMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Jason McCoy appears to be the king of reinvention.

Growing up in the small town of Minesing, Ontario, McCoy admired the well-rounded artistry of classic entertainers Roger Miller and Johnny Cash, to Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell.

Armed with a guitar and a dream, McCoy set out at the age of 19 to follow his own path to stardom.

As a Country Music artist, he’s racked up multiple CCMA and CMA awards along with a Gold album. As creator and front man of the highest selling band in Canadian Country Music history, The Road Hammers, McCoy took on the Country Rock genre and guided the band to unprecedented success throughout Canada and the United States, picking up a platinum album, CCMA Band of the Year award, and a Juno along the way… but music is only part of the story. Ever engaging and entertaining, McCoy has become a popular host on many fronts. From voicing the nationally syndicated Country Radio show Sounds Canadian, (2007-2010), to stepping in front of the camera as host of Smashtown (CMT Canada/USA), and two seasons of CMT’s Pet Heroes (2010/2011).

The release of the album Everything, marked McCoy’s first solo studio album since 2001, and spawned the top 10 hit, She’s Good for Me, as well as the title track I’d Still Have Everything. Equally comfortable behind the mic, or in front of the camera, McCoy has reinvented himself time and again to become a bonafide all round entertainer.

McCoy continues to write and record music, and prizes the time he spends with his wife and two children at their home farm, just two miles from the small town of Minesing where it all began.

McCoy will appear in Campbell River at 7:30 p.m. at the Tidemark Theatre on Nov. 21. Tickets are $35 Member, $45 Non-Member, $22 Student, $5 eyeGo. Call 287-PINK or order online at  tidemarktheatre.com.
