You’ll want to hear this superb songwriter and storyteller when he brings Dirt Road Stories to Duncan

Dean Brody is bringing his Dirt Road Stories Tour to Duncan on Nov. 29.

Current CCMA Fan’s Choice, two-time Juno Award winning artist and celebrated songwriter, Dean Brody has been traveling across Canada, stopping in both small towns and larger markets, offering an intimate but compelling showcase of his talent.

Fans are all aware of his depth as a songwriter, and his unparalleled ability to bring storytelling to the forefront of country music.

When Brody sings, you just have to listen to the words because they touch your heart and mind.

Brody is no stranger to the Cowichan Valley, having headlined at Sunfest in 2014.

A three-time winner of the CCMA award for Songwriter of the Year, Brody’s reputation for penning thoughtful, articulate, original narratives in music began back in 2009 with the release of ‘Brothers’, a touching song about a loved one leaving for a tour in the military, which resonated both north and south of the border.

Celebrated songs such as ‘Trail in Life’, ‘Another Man’s Gold’, and ‘Bounty’, have gone on to place Brody in a unique category all his own, with Brody recently landing his 22nd Top 10 hit at country radio, with ‘Good Goodbye’.

His ballad ‘Time’, released in 2016, laments on the passing of time, becoming especially poignant in a social media era with less one-on-one interaction with loved ones. It earned critical acclaim and recognition, showcasing Brody’s unique ability to make people think about their actions through his lyrics.

Many of Brody’s songs were in fact written at his kitchen table, and this acoustic tour is meant to replicate that intimate setting that inspires his original works.

“I want to give my fans a window into how my songs were written, how they sound in their rawest form, performed in an intimate theatre setting,” states Brody.

The focus on compelling storytelling in country is only emphasized with his opening act. Saskatchewan native Tenille Arts who was recently featured on The Bachelor, will open for him, providing insight into the meaning behind the songs on her debut EP.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for rows A-E are $75 each, while rows F-I are $60.50 and rows J-P (including wheelchair seats) are $48 each. Get them at https://ctcentre.bc.ca/TheatreManager/1/login?event=2042 or call 250-748-7529 to book over the phone at the Cowichan Ticket Centre.
