Canada’s Walk of Fame Festival to feature Dean Brody with opening act Doc Walker
Canadian country star Dean Brody makes his Massey Hall debut as part of the 2014 Canada’s Walk of Fame Festival. Brody exploded on the music scene in 2009, and has since scored two #1 singles and 14 Top 10s, becoming the #1 Most Played Canadian Artist for the past three consecutive years. This year alone, he received the 2014 CCMA Award for Album of the Year, and the 2014 JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year for Crop Circles. His Crop Circles and Tractor Beams Arena tour was sold out across Canada.
Crop Circles, Dean Brody’s latest record, is an album he hopes will take listeners away from the cares of daily life for a while. “When we listen to music, we don’t necessarily want to think about what’s going on in the here and now, we want to go on a journey, and I hope that’s what happens for my fans with this record.”
Job done – On songs like ‘The Old Sandbar’ and ‘Mountain Man,’ the Jaffray, BC born, Nova Scotia-based singer/songwriter celebrates his love of the East Coast and his childhood home at the foot of the Rockies and, with his Civil War era love story, ‘Kansas Cried,’ transports listeners through time and space without missing a beat.
In its first week of release, ‘Bounty’ held the #1 Most Added song overall and #1 Most Added spot at Country radio for two consecutive weeks and displays Brody’s growth as a writer, lyricist and storyteller in equal measure with a story that has both substantial emotional weight and a certain amount of levity.
Dean Brody was nominated for 6 CCMA Awards this year, including: Fans' Choice, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Songwriter(s) of the Year, CMT Video of the Year and Male Artist of the Year.
