  • Greg Hanna ready to hit hometown stage
    By Carolyn Thompson Goddard - AgriNews Contributor

    While country music recording star Greg Hanna won't be performing until the final day of the 2015 IPM, he plans to be there on opening day to lend a helping hand and give back to his home community of Finch.  

    Hanna began singing in the church choir at St. Luke's Presbyterian in Finch mentioning that he sang at a number of weddings and funerals locally. He described how he "cut his teeth" on country music as a performer of the Old Time Fiddlers who met at the Chesterville Legion every second Saturday of each month.  Throughout his teen years when he attended Tagwi Secondary School, he was an active member of Stormont Junior Farmers and performed in local bands, before moving to London, Ont., to study in the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe College.  

    Hanna mentioned that he returns a few times each year to lecture in his field of music at Fanshawe College and has guest lectured at the Music Program at Algonquin College in Ottawa in recent years as well. Ten years ago, he moved to Nashville, after "a string of Top #10 radio singles" here in Canada and he continues to meet success in the music industry there in the United States at the highest of levels.    

    When he heard that the International Plowing Match was coming to his home area, it became his mission to be involved because as he says it is "all about hometown heritage" and giving back to the community. He continued by saying that "there is nothing more rewarding than coming back home and sharing that success with my home town, where it all started." 

    When asked about his greatest accomplishment, he responded that his proudest accomplishment was making "Mom and Dad" proud, saying that they were his biggest supporters and advised him to follow his dreams. 

    Hanna's performance on Sat., Sept. 26, just prior to the closing ceremonies of the 2015 IPM will include It's a Man's Job, What Kind Of Love, Makin' Love Real, It Rained, Gimme More Money, I'm Searchin Too, and most recently, I'm In. He will be donating two brand new autographed Epiphone guitars that will be auctioned off during his show.
