Throughout the years, Canada has yielded some of the biggest names in the music world in a variety of genres. Many country
stars hail from the Great White North, but no one in the Canadian country scene is perhaps as famous as Tommy Hunter. Tommy
Hunter earned the nickname of "Canada's Country Gentleman," and every one of his tour
dates adds to that reputation.
Tommy Hunter is a native of London, Ontario and took to music at a young age. His first performance happened when he was
just 12 years old, and he embarked on his first tour of North America at the age of 16. In the mid 1950s, he became a household
name in Canada thanks to his gig on the television show Country Hoedown. After the show closed, he continued to book concert dates around the world.
Even though country fans in the United States may not be as familiar with Tommy Hunter as names like Merle Haggard and
Hank Williams, Hunter has reached nearly every measurable mark of a country legend. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 1965,
and he even hosted his own show in the 1980s. Seeing him live will be an unforgettable experience for his fans.
