George Canyon, the award-winning country musician, actor, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation spokesperson and official national anthem singer for the Calgary Flames, can now add author to his resumé. In November, Simon and Schuster Canada is releasing My Country, Canyon’s memoir, which details his early days growing up in Nova Scotia, all the way to his current life as an established star living in rural Alberta, with stints in Nashville and on tour buses along the way.

While Canyon seems like he’s always had it made, what with his chiselled good looks and smooth, deep voice, he has overcome adversity in his life. This book details his struggles as well as his climb to musical success with humour and homespun wisdom.
