Dean Brody’s returning to Cranbrook, and planning a party for a few thousand friends.

The Country music star, originally from Jaffray, is riding the wave of his seven Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards and award for Male Artist of the Year. Brody has also unveiled the details of his fourth studio album “Crop Circles,” slated for release on November 5, 2013.

In support of the album, Brody’s hitting the road. He announced Monday that Western Financial Place in Cranbrook will be a stop on his Crop Circles & Tractor Beams. The tour kicks off in January, 2014, and touches down in Cranbrook on  February 18.

Tickets are available at the Western Financial Place box office, charge by phone 250-426-SEAT (7328) or online at www.westernfinancialplace.ca.

“Crop Circles” features Brody’s  new single “Bounty,” with guest vocalist Lindi Ortega,which was released last month. The single has already received the No. 1 Most Added spot overall and No. 1 Most Added spot at country radio in its first week.

Shortly after graduating from Mt. Baker Secondary School, Brody moved to Nashville to pursue a music career — he worked there as a songwriter. He released his debut album in 2008, and two others — “Trail in Life” and “Dirt” — prior to “Crop Circles.”

Brody currently lives in Nova Scotia.

With back-to-back Album of the Year wins at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards (Trail In Life and DIRT), Brody has won seven CCMA Awards and earned two JUNO Award nominations. Named the No. 1 Most Played Canadian Country Artist at radio in both 2011 and 2012, he has charted 11 Top 10 singles including the Gold-selling No. 1 hit “Canadian Girls” and “It’s Friday” featuring Great Big Sea.

His most recent Cranbrook show was in January, 2013, at the Key City Theatre.

Joining Brody as opening act will be Cassadee Pope. Pope is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and is the lead vocalist of the pop rock band Hey Monday, which is currently on hiatus. Pope embarked on a solo career which was announced in December 2011, but reassured fans that the band had not “broken up.” In early 2012, she played her first acoustic solo tour before releasing her debut solo EP in May later that year. She took part in the third season of NBC’s The Voice and was crowned the winner on December 18, 2012. She became the first female winner of The Voice. Her debut solo album Frame By Frame is set for release on October 8, 2013.
