We announced that country music star Tebey will be hosting his annual golf classic on Wednesday, May 30 at The Quarry Golf Club with special guest country music sensation Tim Hicks. The country music stars will be golfing with fans teeing off at 12 p.m. followed by a special VIP reception where the pair will be joined by Kira Isabella for a special acoustic performance. All funds raised will support mental health programming delivered by the Peterborough Family Health Team. Spaces are limited and anyone wishing to join Tebey on the green are encouraged to register their foursome, for a cost of $600, which includes a lunch, afternoon of golfing, special activities throughout the day, refreshments on the course, VIP reception with a private acoustic performance and meet and greet with all three country music artists. Tickets for the VIP reception are also available for $40 and are limited. All golfers will automatically be entered to win a Country Music Fan Experience valued at $1,500 from hosts Country 105 and travel partners Carlson Wagonlit.
“I’m so excited to be bringing our Golf Classic back to Peterborough this year and very grateful to my good friend Tim Hicks who is going to be joining me on the links this May,” said Tebey. “It’s going to be a great day of golf, fun and country music and I’m personally excited for our acoustic session with myself and Tim, and of course the lovely Kira Isabella, who is going to be joining us at the VIP reception that evening. All funds are going to support mental health right here in Peterborough.”
“It’s a tremendous honour to continue to work with Tebey on his Annual Golf Classic and we’re very excited about this year’s event,” said Laura Kennedy, Executive Director, GPHSF, Your Family Health Team Foundation. “To make the event more accessible for country music fans we’ve added an evening ticket this year for $40 which will allow access to the VIP reception and acoustic performance, in addition to the golf foursomes. We expect with Tim Hicks joining Tebey for golf that our $600 foursomes will sell quickly and of course space is limited for the VIP cocktail reception with Tebey, Tim and Kira Isabella all taking the stage for an acoustic set later that night that. We’d like to thank our partners, country 105 and Carlson Wagonlit, for their generous support and of course Tebey for donating his time and passion in bringing this golf classic to life and having his friends join us in Peterborough at this event.”
Foursomes are currently available for $600 and, if you are a single player, you can also register and be placed with a team. VIP Cocktail Reception tickets are available for $40.

About Tim Hicks
Let’s get something out of the way: longevity is not a synonym for stagnation. Sometimes, longevity is a symbol of stubborn refusal to compromise or insistence on marching only to the beat of the most exhilarating drum. Take Tim Hicks. If anyone was ready for his proverbial close-up, it’s the acclaimed, chart-topping and award-winning artist. His presence as a consistently electrifying entertainer on the Canadian music scene may stretch back more than a decade, but his latest and third studio full-length album, the alternately scorching and tender Shake These Walls, scans as strikingly new.
That’s what happens when you’re lucky (read: dogged) enough to locate your most authentic musical voice at the precise moment you find yourself in Nashville scratching it out alongside some of the sharpest blades in the musical toolbox. Co-written by Hicks who writes the songs that define his character, Shake These Walls evolves musically. “I wanted to show people I had grown,” Hicks says of the new album. “There is truth in each of these songs because I co-wrote every one of them. I have a personal connection with every lyric, every riff. People are going to find there’s a healthy dose of the Tim Hicks party in there but there’s lots of other stuff certain to be interesting to many different people.”
Produced by Corey Crowder (who recently celebrated his second #1 U.S. single with Chris Young), and whittled down from a total of some 70 songs written in Toronto and Nashville over the past year, Shake These Walls provided Hicks with a distinct advantage absent from both 2013’s Throw Down and 2014’s-widely feted 5:01: a live, in-studio band while they were recording. “I am a band guy at heart and I love playing music live. I’m always asking, ‘How will these songs fit into my live show?’ Having a band right there made it easier to figure all those parts out.”
That’s essential given that in 2017, Hicks mounted the “Shake These Walls Tour,” his second major headlining jaunt following 2015’s sold-out “Get A Little Crazy Tour” and his chance to do what he does best: connect with audiences from coast to coast and beyond. So while Hicks has the resume of a veteran – seven Top 10 singles on Canadian country radio, #1 country album for 5:01, multiple CCMA and SOCAN wins and JUNO nods, coveted spots on prestigious festival stages nationwide – Shake These Walls charts a path that is completely new… and shoots straight for the country music stratosphere.
About Kira Isabella
Kira is a Canadian country singer, songwriter, and guitarist. The Ottawa, Ontario native began studying voice at age seven, and was inspired to pursue the country genre after hearing compatriot Shania Twain’s 2002 album Up! A few years later, at age 14, she won the Rising Star award at the Canadian Country Music Awards, which brought her to the attention of industry professionals, eventually leading to a record deal with Sony Music Canada in 2009.
In 2011, her first single “Love Me Like That,” cracked the Canadian Hot 100. Her debut album of the same name was issued a year later and featured the follow-up singles “A Little More Work” and “Songs About You,” which also charted. Meanwhile, the singer appeared as the opening act on tours with Carrie Underwood and Terri Clark, and in 2013 she won the Canadian Country Music Association Award for Female Artist of the Year. Kira Isabella’s sophomore album, Caffeine & Big Dreams, arrived in 2014 and went on to receive a Juno nomination for 2015 Country Album of the Year.
Kira looks forward to a busy 2018 which will see the introduction of new music, new collaborations and the launch of her own signature video channel focused on Food, Fashion and Fitness.
