Beloved Canadian country group Tim & The Glory Boys have given fans a seasonal update on their hit summer single “Float.” The new track “Skate,” is the perfect accompaniment to a Canadian winter and a tribute to one of the nation’s favourite pastimes, hockey.
As the dark days of January settle in, “Skate” reminds listeners of the joy of a perfect winter afternoon – sharp skates set on glassy ice. Parents flooding their backyards. Lakes frozen and crackling. And communities and neighbours gathering to bring some joy to winter. The song, produced by Allen Salmon, is the perfect addition to the winter canon and an irresistible ode to the season.
Tim & The Glory Boys are a Canadian gang of backwoods hillbillies with world-class facial hair and infectious on-stage energy. They have toured the world for over a decade and have shared the stage with countless Country, Roots and Gospel artists. The Glory Boys include Colin Trask (dobro/steel guitar), Brenton Thorvaldson (banjo/fiddle) and fronted by lead singer Tim Neufeld. They are 2-time JUNO champs and CCMA nominees (2021 ‘Group of the Year’, ‘Rising Star’ and 2022 ‘Group of the Year’). Together, the guys have been entertaining live audiences around the world since 2013 with their unique blend of boot-stompin’ country, front porch jams, and a healthy dose of blue-collar humour.
