Since his first record release of "Gonna Have a Party" in 1958, his first chart record "That's What I Call Livin'" in 1961 and his first number one recording of "Hitch Hikin" on RCA in 1964, Dick Damron has written over 500 songs and recorded more than 30 CD's, cassettes and vinyl labels.
Dick has performed in thousands of venues around the world, ranging from tiny country halls and clubs, to Las Vegas casinos and some of the largest Country Music Festivals. He has won almost every Country Music Award in Canada, as well as 5 Texas Awards and was twice named Foreign Artist of the Year in Europe.
His records and music can still be heard on classic country radio stations around the world, as well as online and satellite radio. Dick spends his summers in his hometown in Alberta, Canada and winters in Mexico.
Both a Canadian and International Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, his words and music reveal far more than we can tell you here and his autobiography titled "The Legend & The Legacy" published in 1998 is worth the read !
Dick has written two novels, "Rock A Bye Baby Blues' and "Pacific Coast Radio". Dick's songs have been recorded by Charley Pride (2008 - Jesus It's Me Again), George Hamilton IV (Countrifyed), Carroll Baker, Wilf Carter and countless others.
Still writing songs, and performing on occassion, Dick recently celebrated his 28th anniversary of his 50th Birthday!
Dick Damron is an inspiration, and anyone who loves country music should get to know this gentleman.
