Canadian Country Music Association multi-award winner Gil Grand has launched the Gil Grand Country Music Tours – Canada’s only sight-seeing and sing-a-long tour company. Country music lovers will have the chance to ride in a luxury coach to the biggest and greatest country music events and destinations throughout the U.S. and Canada. The entertainment begins from the moment you step onto the bus and continues in transit all the way to your final destination making it the ultimate country music experience.
Grand shares, “I can remember in my early 20s there was a gentleman by the name of Bill Rivers who was a true champion of country music in the Sudbury region. He owned and operated a company called Rivers Tours and the Country Music Travellers where he took bus loads of enthusiastic local country fans to Nashville, Branson and Memphis. I got to become friends with Bill and performed at several of his Sunday afternoon dances early on in my career. I never forgot his bus tours and I’d like to think that in a small way I can continue this tradition.”
Join Gil Grand on the first trip March 5 – 10 to Nashville, Tennessee and stay at the world famous Opryland Hotel.

Grand explains, “This has been a dream of mine for many years now. Living in Nashville for the past 15 years I’ve witnessed the rise in popularity and love affair that the world has with Nashville. And, a big number of the tourists here are Canadian. I can’t wait to ride the bus and sing with everyone!”
