Who Am I?
Today is my 40th birthday.
I was born in Windsor, Ontario. My parents separated when I was two years old and my mother remarried shortly afterward. When I was in High School I sang in a local group called "Longshot" that covered Top 40 songs.
When I was 22, my mother and step-father were both killed in a car accident and I supported my two younger brothers and a sister by performing at a local resort in Huntsville, Ontario.
In 1991 I changed my name to an Ojibwa word that, translated, means "I'm on my way" (my step-father was Ojibwa). Since then, I have enjoyed tremendous success, primarily as a country artist but with considerable cross-over appeal.
