Goodvin returns to play at Lougheed Centre By Murray Green

Aaron Goodvin is no stranger to Camrose. But unless you caught his music act at the Big Valley Jamboree on Saturday, Aug. 4, you may not know just how good of a performer he really is. For those of you who missed his performance, or better yet enjoyed it, you are in luck to see him again.

Aaron will be playing at the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m. One of the benefits of growing up in a small town is learning to make your own entertainment. For Aaron, from Spirit River, that meant joining his fam-

ily around the campfire for sing-alongs. At 12 years old, Aaron entered a singing contest at a local mall. Once he heard the crowd’s applause, he knew performing was what he wanted to do. He learned to play guitar and started writing his own material and by 18, he was contrib-

uting songwriting cuts to other artists. Over the years, Aaron built a local reputation as a dynamic performer with a rock solid portfolio of songs. He began making trips to Nashville to test the waters in country music’s Mecca. After signing with publishing powerhouse Warner Chappell Music, Aar-

on scored his first majorleague contribution on the track “Out Like That” on Luke Bryan’s multi-platinum album Crash My Party. Aaron continued to develop as a performer and eventually caught the attention of Johnny Reid. “I told Johnny that I just wanted to share my music with an audience,” said Aaron.
