Moraine’s Johnny Reid Goes Gold

Scottish-born, Nashville-based Canadian country artist and Moraine Music writer/artist Johnny Reid’s new album, Dance With Me, leaped to Gold status in Canada within 48 hours of its release. Produced by Grammy-winner Brent Maher, Dance With Me currently sits at #1 on Billboard’s Canadian Country Album chart and #3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Album chart. The reigning CCMA Top Male Artist has two additional titles holding the #3 and #5 slots respectively on the Country Album chart. “A Woman Like You,” the lead single from the new CD, is at #3 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles chart. Recording the album in Nashville’s Blue Room studio, Reid and co-writer/producer Maher went for strong live performances, cutting vocals and the band’s tracks simultaneously, recording the bulk of the album in two days with a team of Nashville A-list players including ACM Keyboardist of the Year Gordon Mote, guitarist Mark Selby and members of Mark Knopfler’s touring band, bassist Glen Worf, and guitarist Richard Bennett. Reid is currently headlining a 39 date sold-out nationwide tour in Canada.
