Johnny Reid sells out concert halls instantly, all his recordings have been charttopping best sellers, with his last CD (Dance with Me) was certified Double Platinum. His (EMI-released) 2010 concert DVD (Live at the Jubilee) has sold Triple Platinum and was #1 on the Soundscan Music DVD chart for eleven weeks. He was nominated for 4 Juno Awards this year and over the last 4 years he has won 10 CCMA Awards!!
He's a darling of the country music radio format in Canada, yet he's not a country artist. He's a Scottish-born, Canadian-raised soul singer, who also happens to be a superb songwriter and entertainer. His new CD 'A Place Called Love' will solidify his position as a top-selling Canadian 'crossover' artist.

1.Today I'm Gonna Try To Change The World: The sentiment behind the lyrics in this song are absolutely awe inspiring. They show such appreciation & affection for honouring a life. This is what Johnny Reid does best in his songs..he is a truly magnificent storyteller. The grit in his voice is infectious and this type of voice is a big moneymaker for the music industry and this type of artist can go in many directions genre-wise. When you want to feel good about your life folks especially on a day when everything has gone wrong....listen to this song..it will take you out of any funk you might be in & for sure inspire you.
2.That Man Is Me: I love the bluesy instrumentation of this song....mixed with his gritty vocals. Somehow it reminds me of a song that maybe we could have heard back in the 60's during the days of Motown as it has a soul to it that is just great! So nice to hear a man speaking so frankly and confident about his feelings toward the lady in his life. Really loved the horns in this song as well. He has a really good group of musicians that accompany him.
3.Hands Of A Working Man: This song has what I would say is integrity, honour, respect and someone who admires and appreciates history and the steps it takes to be a success in life. It does have a man's prospective ...Read more ›
I was so thrilled that he was part of the Canada Day celebrations and that he sang Today I'm Gonna Try and Change the World. The video is so touching and moving. I can see this song being used in movies and advertising because it is so well written and is a message for us all. We can make a difference, do our part to encourage those around us as we live "do unto others that they should do unto you".
When you here Johnny talk about his Gran and then listen to Tell me Margaret, which he wrote after she passed away, gives the song so much more life and meaning. Grief is tough and this song touches me, it makes me cry.
Johnny Reid is a super human being, a grounded family man, with a wonderful talent that he is humbly sharing with us and indeed he is changing the world. Thank you, Johnny!
Do I recommend it? Well, as someone who will be attending my 4th concert of his this fall... I'll be buying anything he makes when it comes out.
My main problem with this is it comes across as cliched and a bit contrived. Like it' something that was expected from him rather than something that came naturally. I've been disillusioned with music lately so that could be what's colouring my point of view.
I highly recommend that the deluxe version be purchased over the single version. There's a song called "What Used to Be" on the bonus CD that should've been included on the single CD. I heard it for the first time performed live a year back and loved it on first listened. There's another version of "Out of the Blue" that while great (love the song) should've been left out to allow for "What Used to Be". I'd rather of heard extra, different songs on the second dvd then demos of songs off the main CD. Mostly because I didn't love them. "This is Not Goodbye" is a solid song. Johnny has a way of swaying me to his cause no matter what he does. :P "A Place Called Love" (the song) is arranged beautifully - the little hairs on your arm will stand up.
I don't like "Today I'm Gonna Try To Change the World". It just seems to be the "expected" course of action. However, I couldn't get it out of my head yesterday. So, like I said, an album that needs to grow on me.
I have to watch the DVD yet so I'm hoping it's going to be the treat I think it's going to be.
Buy it, Make up your own mind. If this is your first time buying a CD of Johnny's... I recommend going with one of the first three first. Better yet - get them all! :P
