CFN – A proud Canadian music legend passed away at the age of 77.
Stomping Tom Connors died at his Ontario home.
Tom was an original. He was fiercely Canadian and a self made man. Social media is littered with tributes. His performance of The Hockey Song has become “the” hockey song of our National sport.
Across This Land
Success didn’t come fast for Tom and I think that’s why so many Canadians connected with him. He was real and he was as Canadian as Don Cherry & Timmies.
He died of natural causes at his home in Halton Hills Ontario. He left a letter to his fans.
I want all my fans, past, present, or future, to know that without you, there would have not been any Stompin’ Tom.
It was a long hard bumpy road, but this great country kept me inspired with its beauty, character, and spirit, driving me to keep marching on and devoted to sing about its people and places that make Canada the greatest country in the world.
I must now pass the torch, to all of you, to help keep the Maple Leaf flying high, and be the Patriot Canada needs now and in the future.
I humbly thank you all, one last time, for allowing me in your homes, I hope I continue to bring a little bit of cheer into your lives from the work I have done.
Your Friend always,
Stompin’ Tom Connors
