Kevin Davison to open for Tom Cochrane and Red Rider in Nova Scotia’s Only Show
April 7, 2017; Liverpool, NS: Queens Place Emera Centre and the Region of Queens Municipality are pleased to announce that Kentville, NS native Kevin Davison will take the stage to open for Tom Cochrane and Red Rider this June 28! The June 28th show at Queens Place Emera Centre is the only show Cochrane and Red Rider will perform in Nova Scotia.
Davison’s star continues to rise on the music scene and it may be noted that he is ‘Making Music and Saving Lives’. Jumping into the music scene with both cowboy-booted feet in 2009, he found himself in Nashville within a year in recording sessions with some of the best musicians in North America. With a career as a paramedic in his small hometown of Kentville, NS under his belt, Davison has recently made the switch from full time paramedic to a full time musician. He has dedicated his life to helping others while always carrying a tremendous passion for music.
Life’s journey has brought him to a place in time where music is taking a front seat. Davison has been nominated twice by Music Nova Scotia and the East Coast Music Association for country recording of the year, over the past few years. He was also nominated last year at the Josie Music Awards in Nashville, and was also chosen as one of six country acts to participate in the Atlantic Discovery Program in 2015 with the Canadian Country Music Association.
Davison has had a whirlwind year, from performing at the late Constable Wynn's funeral in Alberta for 8,000+ first responders, the Prime Minister and a tv viewership of over 5 million; to hitting the Cavendish Beach Music Festival stage in Charlottetown, PEI and the first annual Canaan Country Music Festival with Brett Kissel.
His first single from his latest album, Only Human (released April 30th, 2015) was added to over 45 mainstream stations nationwide, and he has been featured on numerous radio stations, and television broadcasts - from Canada AM to CTV News and what seems like everything in between.
In February of this year (2017), Davison released the highly anticipated video for his single "When Those Sirens Are Gone." After six weeks, he received hundreds of messages from first responders around the world about the seriousness of PTSD, and has a whopping 225,000 views on YouTube.
Davison will be traveling from coast to coast in Canada and to the USA for shows in 2017. "I love where my career as a musician has ended up. I can play high energy country shows and still, at times, talk about my long career as a paramedic. I really have the best of both worlds", he said.
Tickets for Tom Cochrane and Red Rider with opening act Kevin Davison are on sale now at the Box Office, Queens Place Emera Centre or www.ticketpro.ca 1-888-311-9090. Get them soon they won’t last long! Celebrate Canada Day week in Liverpool NS.

Known for their energetic style, New York Times pop critic Jon Pareles once described their performances as “It’s not easy to be hyperactive, brooding and whimsical all at once ... but the Barenaked ladies do just that”. Their music has been a near constant presence on the radio, with hits throughout their lengthy career, such as “If I had a Million Dollars”, “Pinch Me”, “One Week” and “Big Bang”. The Barenaked Ladies have been together for nearly 30 years, and have produced 14 studio albums, which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies. Among their awards are 8 Junos, which include Group of the Year in 1993; Children’s Album of the Year in 2009 for Snack Time!; Best Pop Album and Best Group, both in 2001; and an impressive triple win in 1999 for Best Group, Best Pop Album and Best Single. They have earned multiple Grammy nominations, and a US chart topping single with “One Week”, as well as the theme song for one of television’s most popular shows, The Big Bang Theory.
“The Region of Queens continues to gain momentum in event acquisition and execution. Led by a number of volunteer organizations, you’ll have the privilege to see former NHL greats at the Montreal Canadien Alumni Game March 30, and exciting Junior B playoff hockey – with your Liverpool Privateers- going on right now! Your first South Shore Expo Home/Sport and Travel trade show is brought to you by Darwin Event Group May 5-7, and in August, we’re happy to have the Hank Snow Tribute featuring Lisa Brokop, executed by passionate volunteers working hard on your behalf!
