For the Townsman

Multiple Juno and CCMA Award winners Dean Brody and Paul Brandt are thrilled to announce the launch of their co-headline tour #roadtriptour.

Bringing together the best in Canadian country music, this epic #roadtriptour will kick off in Victoria,B.C., on September 24 and wrap up 21 cities later, in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The tour will stop in Cranbrookon Sunday, Sept. 27, at Western Financial Place.

Artist pre-sale runs Tuesday, April 21 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, April 23 at 10 p.m. local time or while supplies last. Tickets go on-sale to the general public Friday, April 24 at 10 a.m. local time.

There is no question that these two are a force to be reckoned with.  With a list of awards and accolades a country mile long, Brandt is recognized as the most awarded male Canadian country artist in history; Brody, the number one most played Canadian country artist on radio. Brody also recently took home Country Album of the Year at both the 2014 CCMA and Juno Awards.

Brody and Brandt share commonalities beyond the scope of their success in country music, making the decision to partner on a national tour an easy one. Both were born in Western Canada and were raised with strong family values — a common thread that is clear not only in how they conduct themselves (including a deep investment and commitment to those in need) but a dominating force in their songs.

They both set off for Nashville early in their careers, which proved to be a defining time for each of them. As a result, both continue to hold the rich history found in Nashville close to their hearts by still actively writing and recording there.

“Dean and I are both deeply proud of our Canadian roots,” says Brandt. “Touring our country together this fall allows us to engage with both sets of fans and celebrate the heritage of country music that inspired our careers.”

“Canada has the greatest fans in the world,” adds Brody. “We are truly excited to bring our two styles together and create an unforgettable experience for them.”

In addition to the tour, both are busy with their latest music. Today, Brody released his fifth studio album Gypsy Road. The record covers huge emotional terrain, reflects Brody’s time living in different parts of the country and features the top 10 single Upside Down.

In March, Brandt released his latest single Nothing which recently hit #30 on the Canadian Artists chart. Nothing joins two hit singles this past year – Forever Summer and Get a Bed.
