Gordon Lightfoot is a Canadian singer-songwriter who has achieved international success with hits including "Early Morning Rain," "If You Could Read My Mind," "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and "Sundown," recorded across 20 albums.
Lightfoot's songs have been played regularly for 50 years, earning him five Grammy nominations, five #1s, five Top 10s and thirteen Top 40 hits in the US. In Canada, he has earned sixteen #1s, eighteen Top 10s and twenty-one Top 40 hits. He has also won 17 Juno Awards - Canada's equivalent to the Grammy Awards.
In June 2012, Lightfoot's legacy was further enhanced when he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and honored for his role in defining the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and '70s. The fewer than 400 inductees who make up this impressive roster include names like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Dolly Parton.
In 2007, Canada Post honored him by issuing an official Gordon Lightfoot postage stamp.
