Dean Brody announced his first national headlining tour with a stop at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre

Coming off big wins at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards, Dean Brody announced his first national headlining tour with a stop at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre on Jan. 26.

After the breakout success of his 2011 CCMA Award winning and Juno nominated sophomore album Trail In Life, Brody has returned in 2012 with his third studio album, Dirt. Released in April, the album debuted at No.1 on the Canadian country charts. The first single, Canadian Girls, dominated country radio becoming a certified gold and No.1 SOCAN hit.

Brody has come into his own as a performer completing multiple sold out dates on 2011’s CMT Hitlist Tour with Aaron Lines and Deric Ruttan and touring extensively on the summer festival circuit. To date, Brody has charted nine Top 10 singles, including his No.1 single Canadian Girls,  No.2 hit Bob Marley and four additional Top 10 songs (Roll That Barrel Out, Trail in Life, People Know You By Your First Name, Little Yellow Blanket).

His third single from Dirt, It’s Friday, featuring Great Big Sea, was serviced to radio on Sept. 7 and the video was shot in St. John’s, Newfoundland with Great Big Sea at the end of August.
