Ken McCoy and his band are headlining the Stampede Barn Dance Saturday night in the Curling rink from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
In 1985 McCoy quit his job and hit the road playing music.
He has never looked back.
To date, he has written hundreds of songs and recorded and released numerous singles to radio that hit the charts in several countries including Canada, Europe and Australia. McCoy has written, produced and released 3 full-length projects.
In 2004 McCoy released Prayin’ for Rain donating 100 per cent of the sales of the CD single and airplay royalties to the Canadian Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
