Grab a blanket, a cold one, and your closest friends because Laurie LeBlanc proves that summer never ends on his new single “Campfire Song,” out now.
“I won’t deny that one of the most incredible feelings on earth is being on stage singing for hundreds/thousands of fans,” said Laurie, “but there’s something magical when you’re sitting by a campfire with family and friends, and everybody sings along to some classic campfire songs.”
“Campfire Song” is both a tribute and invitation to reflect on the meaningfulness of gathering and connection, especially when bolstered by the magic of nature and music. It captures the essence of a campfire gathering and evokes cherished memories of warmth, camaraderie, and summer fun. On the track, Laurie shouts out John Denver, Chris Stapleton (George Jones), and The Beatles; but more importantly, he calls out to all listeners to embrace the shared experience of singing around a campfire.
Laurie LeBlanc is one of Canada’s rising country music stars, whose distinctive style contains a sizable helping of east coast Acadian flavor. Ten years after releasing his first album, La Pitoune, in French, establishing his reputation in his home province of New Brunswick and throughout the Maritimes and Quebec, Laurie released his first English album, When It’s Right It’s Right, in 2020.
Last month, Laurie received three new nominations for his album, Long Weekend, from two different associations: Album of the Year (multilingual and other languages) from Gala ADISQ, and Recording of the Year and Song of the Year (French) from the Music New Brunswick Awards.
Now having firmly found his place within the English country music scene, Lauri has created simultaneously his most personal and accessible recording to date. His most recent studio album, Long Weekend, has six brand new songs in English and six in French, all crafted to convey a feel-good summer vibe in both languages. With his dynamic voice and undeniable charm, there is no stopping Laurie LeBlanc as he continues to build his fan base around the world.
