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 CDs, cassettes and vinyl records.

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 of Bentley, Alberta and winters in Mexico.

Dick Damron is a proud member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Country Music Hall of Honour, Alberta Country Music Hall of Fame and the International Country Music Hall of Fame. His words and music reveal far more than this short bio can capture so his autobiography titled The Legend & The Legacy published in 1998 is worth the read.
