Dean Brody, from Jaffray BC (approx 30 mins from Fernie), won Album of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards on Sunday. His album “Crop Circles” was the talk of the night, and had also received a Juno for Country Album of the Year.
“Brody has had a banner 2014, with his sold-out Crop Circles and Tractor Beams arena tour, scoring his 14th top 10 single with “Another Man’s Gold” and becoming the first male Canadian to receive two #1 country singles. This is the third time Brody has won Album of the Year, following wins in 2011 and 2012 for Trail in Life and Dirt, respectively.”
Brody often references his childhood home in the mountains in his music and performances with singles such as “Mountain Man”. He has continually put his home town on the map, even after moving his career out east in Nova Scotia. He has enjoyed success across North America since 2009 with the release of his self titled album.
