John (Johnny) Kirkland Reid (born August 21, 1974 in Lanark, Scotland, UK[2]) is a country music artist who has charted several hit singles in Canada. Reid moved to Canada in July, 1988 when he was 13. His father, a diesel mechanic, wanted to give Reid and his brother opportunities he did not think they would have in Scotland. He graduated from Turner Fenton Secondary School in Brampton, ON in 1992. Reid went on to attend Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Quebec, where he met his wife (and was a kicker on the varsity football team).[3] Reid moved to Nashville, Tennessee to make country music; he and his family reside in Nashville.[4] He was nominated for the 2008 Juno Award for Country Recording of the Year for Kicking Stones. Reid was named Male Artist of the Year at both the 2008 and 2009 CCMA Awards. He also performed at the Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill on July 1, 2010, which the Queen and Prince Philip attended.

Music career[edit]

Another Day, Another Dime and Johnny Reid[edit]

Reid's debut album, Another Day, Another Dime, was released in 1997 on JCD Records. No singles were ever released from the album. However, it was his second album, which was self-titled and released in 2000, where he saw minimal chart success. Three singles from this album were released and all three of which charted. The lead-off and debut single, "Given Up on Me", was a minor hit on the RPM Country Tracks chart. It reached a peak of No. 45. A second single, "Runnin' Wild" charted at No. 50. The album's third and final single, "She Don't Wanna Hear", just missed the Top 40 of the country chart, peaking at No. 41.

Born to Roll[edit]

Reid's first single in four years, "You Still Own Me", was released in 2004. It was the lead-off single to his third studio album, Born to Roll. The charted in the 20 of the Canadian country charts. Born to Roll was released on March 15, 2005, via Open Road Recordings, and peaked at No. 5 on the Canadian Top Country Albums chart. A second single, "Sixty to Zero", charted to No. 19, however it was the album's third single to get Reid into the Top 10 of the charts. "Missing an Angel" eventually reached No. 6 on the charts, giving him his first Top 10 single of his career. A fourth single, "Time Flies", also managed to chart in the Top 10, peaking at No. 9. A fifth and final single, "Gypsy in My Soul", only made No. 12. Born to Roll became his first certified album, being certified Gold by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA).

In 2007, Canadian music group Emerson Drive covered "You Still Own Me". They took the song to No. 22 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Kicking Stones and Dance with Me[edit]

In 2007, a new single entitled "Love Sweet Love", would be released and act as the lead-off single to Kicking Stones, which was released on April 10, 2007. The single peaked at No. 11 on the Canadian country charts and was followed by a string of Top 20 singles. The second single, the album's title track, reached No. 13, and "Darlin'", the album's third single, became Reid's first Top 5 single. Two additional singles, "Thank You" and "Out of the Blue", were released, peaking at No. 13 and No. 7 on the charts, respectively.

Reid's fifth studio album, Dance with Me, was released in March 2009, and debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Top Country Albums chart and No. 3 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[5] "A Woman Like You" was released as the first single from the album and reached No. 4 on the country charts, peaking No. 4 in 2009.
