5x GOLD CERTIFIED COUNTRY STAR TIM HICKS CONTINUES TO CARVE HIS OWN PATH
HICKS WRAPS “SHAKE THESE WALLS TOUR” AND DRAWS ELECTRIC REACTION FROM COUNTRY MUSIC FANS COAST TO COAST
BREAK OUT SINGLE “GET BY” GOES PLATINUM
Toronto, ON (February 6, 2017) – The story that has Country music fans buzzing this week is that of two-time JUNO Award nominee and CCMA Award winner Tim Hicks and the success of his Shake These Walls national tour. Throughout the month of January, the highly praised tour played to thousands of fans, with Hicks delivering a raucous set night after night – igniting crowds from coast to coast with the “right kind of magic to bring fans back for another round” (Bucketlist).
A determined road warrior known for his compelling stage presence, Hicks has as much momentum as any Country artist in the business having already earned five GOLD certified singles in addition to two JUNO Award nominations and the 2014 CCMA Award for Rising Star. Hicks’ cumulative streams on Spotify add up to 7 million+ including 1.5 million for “Stompin’ Ground,” and his North American hit “Stronger Beer” is knocking on the door of PLATINUM certification where it will join Hicks’ break out track “Get By”.
Make no mistake – Hicks the “elite Country music star” (GoBe Weekly), has made an impression on fans and critics alike, becoming a “household name” (Niagara Falls Review) and “one to watch” (Toronto Star), flipping a switch when he steps on stage, creating unforgettable moments for capacity crowds and getting audiences fired up with many declaring “his country-rock infused live show is one fans will be talking about long after the encore.” He marches to the beat of his own drum and mines that perspective on stage, building one of country music’s most loyal audiences show by show, and song by song.
This April, CMT Canada will share the story of Tim Hicks live in an exclusive one hour TV special. Audiences across the country will witness a hero’s welcome for Hicks as he strives to carve his place as one of Canadian country music’s best.
Hicks is currently closing in on Top 10 at country radio with the hit “Slow Burn”, his second single from 2016’s chart-topping “Shake These Walls” album. Co-written by Hicks, “Shake These Walls” is the follow up to 2014’s CCMA Award nominated sophomore album 5:01 and is a combination of slick party-fueled anthems, blue collar country and free-spirited romance, shaping the evolution of an artist and bringing the acclaimed entertainer, Tim Hicks, front and centre for his proverbial close up.
