Country singer releases debut single, “Knock On Wood,” today

Confirmed as opening act on 2016 Johnny Reid tour


Friday, November 6, 2015 - For Immediate release


Warner Music Canada is proud to welcome Country singer / songwriter Aaron Goodvin to the label’s roster.  Goodvin makes his label debut with the release today of the single “Knock On Wood,” available at all retailers and streaming services.  In 2016, Aaron will get a chance to meet audiences right across the country as the opening act on Johnny Reid’s  cross-Canada What Love Is All About 2016 tour.


“This song is the past 10 years of my life wrapped into three and half minutes,” says Aaron of “Knock On Wood.” “It’s also a great reminder to myself of all the hard times I got through just to get a song like this on the radio.”

“The first time I heard Aaron perform his songs, I knew he had something special,” says Steve Kane, President, Warner Music Canada. “He brings to life wonderful human stories and sings in a voice that resonates with passion and truth.  The Warner Music Canada team is proud to work with such an incredibly talented artist.”

Raised in a music loving family, Aaron Goodvin had his first taste of stage life when he entered a singing contest at a local mall at 12 years-old.  Once he heard the applause from the crowd, he knew what he wanted to do and no one was going to get in his way.  But singing other people’s songs wasn’t what he had in mind, so he as soon as he could play guitar, he started writing his own material.


Over the years, Aaron built a local reputation as a dynamic performer with a rock solid portfolio of songs.  With that success buoying his confidence, he started to make trips down to Nashville to test the waters in country music’s Mecca.  After signing with publishing powerhouse Warner Chappell Music, Aaron scored his first major league contribution with the track “Out Like That” on Luke Bryan’s multi-platinum Crash My Party


The opportunity to continue to develop as a performer ended up coming from fellow artist Johnny Reid.  Reid was working with a Nashville recording engineer who mentioned that he had also been working with a young singer named Aaron Goodvin.  Impressed by his ability to sing and perform Johnny reached out to Aaron to get together. The two talked about what Aaron’s future could hold. 


“Aaron Goodvin is living proof that hard work, passion, perseverance and pure God given ability will eventually get you where you were born to be,” says Johnny Reid. “I look forward to introducing my audience to this exceptional talent on my 2016 tour”
