Archers 060111 event launches new look and new sponsorship in local community

by Mike Robinson

ARTHUR - On May 28, residents here had a sneak peak into the new look and music of Canadian country artist Tim Archer - now simply known as Archer.

The Chesley-based country music artist was featured performer at Sussman’s annual tent sale event.

Because of that, Arthur residents the news came to locals a few days earlier than what the general public when it came to his new look, his new CD, his new sponsorship by Sussman’s of Arthur, and his new record contract.

His newest releases are One of Kind and his two disc CD Let’s Dance combining country and pop music and revisited version of Blue of the Sky.

The unveiling was for a number of new items for his fans and Archer said the launch itself was called 06-01-11.

There was also some giveaway of some music and CDs.

The event also coincided with an antique car show on location as well.

“It is a great honour to be here in Arthur. I’m glad I got to meet you really nice people here and we’re having a great time here today.”

Archer said he met the staff at Sussman’s not too long ago.

He said there were discussions about when he goes on tour doing rodeos and other events.

“When I need to look my best, that my official endorsing sponsor is Sussman’s of Arthur.”

Archer also had a display of some of the former attire he’d performed in including a jacket he’d worn performing in the Grand Ole Opry where he’d performed years ago.

Now on his fifth CD, some of his performance was a tribute to his parents.

He acknowledged fans who’d been there since the start of his career at age 18, from a small fan base to becoming a top 10 Canadian country music singer in 2010 - with three hit singles and a return of Blue of the Sky.

He said Blue of the Sky was a project which began in 1961, “a song my father had wrote for my mom - they were my two biggest fans.”

When Archer was 22, his mother passed away as a result of cancer.

At that time, his father presented him with the song to finish and record “and let the world hear Blue of the Sky.”

He also considered himself fortunate in the late 1990s to sing on stage at the Grand Ole Opry.

He said last year, he did just that, recording a CD of all original material, and Blue of the Sky went to number 7 on the country charts.

“So their message was heard. It was great to be a part of that,” Archer added.
