Jason McCoy brings the Perfect Gift to the lakecity

Canadian country star Jason McCoy, will be in Williams Lake this Sunday, Nov. 25 with his Perfect Gift holiday show.

Award winning Canadian country musician, Jason McCoy, will be in Williams Lake this Sunday, Nov. 25 with his Perfect Gift holiday show on stage at the Gibraltar Room.

“My favourite part of my job is entertaining,” McCoy says of the show.

“With the Perfect Gift Tour, I get to interact with the crowd on a more personal level. It’s going to be an amazing tour with great holiday music and a lot of laughs.”

His unique and interactive concert finds McCoy performing solo acoustic with a high tech twist. Sharing the stage is a video screen that includes special guests, and features home videos and scenes from his upcoming CMT special Christmas at the Grand.

Fans of all ages can expect a night of beloved Christmas classics and new holiday originals, along with Christmas stories.

On the big screen behind him, he says the audience will be treated to virtual guest appearances from a who’s who of country’s top talent.

“There is no other show like it,” McCoy said in an interview with the Tribune from his home in Ontario where he was finishing the video for his new Christmas song Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.

These days McCoy says his biggest inspiration for song writing is his family. Indeed his young son was in the studio with him as they worked on the video and could be heard chattering in the background. McCoy says they were recording in a studio located in a bowling alley in his home town of Minesing, Ontario.

McCoy and his wife and two children share their time between Nashville and their farm near Minesing where he got his start.

“I’m looking forward to getting on the road,” McCoy says. “I think people will be surprised at what they will see in the show.”

Over the span of his 25-year career in the entertainment industry, McCoy has earned widespread recognition for his music.

This year, he was nominated for a 2012 JUNO Award in the category of Country Recording of the Year for his 2011 release, Everything.

He is a two-time Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award-winner for Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year and in 2006 he was awarded Global Artist of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards. McCoy’s third studio album, Playing’ For Keeps (1997), was certified Gold.

McCoy was also the founder and front man of the highest selling country band in Canadian country music history, The Road Hammers. The band’s self-titled debut album was certified Platinum and debuted number 1 on the sales chart.

In 2005 and 2006, The Road Hammers took home two CCMA Awards for Country Group/Duo of the Year and a JUNO Award for Country Recording of the Year.

Tickets are available only at Margetts Meats and Bob’s Shoes, Workwear and Repair. Cash only.

McCoy’s CMT special Christmas At The Grand, will air across the country on December 7, 8, 16 and 24.
