When Warner Music Canada recording artist Aaron Goodvin was announced as the winner of the 2018 CCMA award as Songwriter of the Year, it was a sign that the music industry was acknowledging what the public already new – a new star had arrived!
In 2016, Aaron enjoyed his first Top ten hit with the single “Woman In Love,” a song he wrote for his then finance (now wife) but it wasn’t until the summer of 2017 and the release of “Lonely Drum” that things started to explode. The single became the inescapable smash hit of the summer with over one million YouTube views on the video and 5 million streams. “Lonely Drum” became the only Canadian country single released in the past two years to be certified platinum.
Aaron spent the spring of 2018 in Nashville working on material for his new album. Fans will not be disappointed as Aaron once again delivers memorable melodies and his unique voice to this new set of songs. The album’s lead single, “You Are,” is just a taste of things to come.
Writing memorable hooks is what Aaron has been all about ever since he relocated from his hometown in Spirit River, Alberta to country music’s Mecca, Nashville. After signing with publishing powerhouse Warner Chappell Music, Aaron scored his first major league contribution with the aforementioned Luke Bryan track and followed that up with contributions to Jon Pardi and Cole Swindell.
