Ryan Reynolds Serenaded by Entire Country in “Canada Loves You Back”
If you’re a Canadian boy AND an early 90s kid like Ryan Reynolds, you know there’s a very special band that will always have a place in your heart. That band is the Barenaked Ladies. Also, if you’re a Canadian, you know that there’s an annual collect of awards given called the Governor General’s Awards that recognize great contributions to people in academic, artistic and other fields. Think of it like the Canuck version of the Noble Prizes.
Well, two things came together in 2021 that made Ryan Reynolds a very happy guy. He won one of those cool awards AND the former lead singer of that storied band, Steven Page, helped create the memorable ditty, “Canada Loves You Back.”
