Born in Scotland, Reid spent the first 13 years of his life in the land of tartan and haggis before moving with his family to Brampton, ON in 1988. He went to university at Bishop’s in Lennoxville, QC where he was the place-kicker on the varsity football team the Gaiters. In 1997 he released his first album as a country and western singer, and since then he’s carved out a pretty decent career as a musician, with seven albums to his credit.

Tonight, he’s in town to play a show at Conexus Arts Centre (7:30 p.m., tickets $42.50-$79.50). To give you a sense of his talent here’s the video for his 2012 song “Baby I Know It” with guest vocals by Carolyn Dawn Johnson:
