Album: Hearts on Fire
Release Date: April 29, 2016
Label: MDM Recordings
By now you have probably heard the name Chad Brownlee. Hockey player turned country star and a definite favourite of Canadian Beats. He has finally released his latest album Hearts on Fire, his fourth studio album. The short but oh so sweet release only has seven songs, including the two singles released prior to the album, “Hearts on Fire” and “I Hate You for It”. With the success of Brownlee’s previous release, The Fighters, fans and critics alike were impatient for the release of this newest album.
The album opens with the title track followed by “I Hate You for It”, a personal favourite of mine off of the album. The song shows off the rock sound Brownlee often has paired with his signature country vocals. “Might as Well Be Me” starts off a bit slower than the other songs and tells the story of someone wanting to be with a girl, who unfortunately is just waiting for someone else to notice her. “Out of The Blue”, my other favourite off of the album, picks up the pace again as it tells the story about falling in love with someone you had no intentions of ever having feelings for. The album has an overall story of love and all the trials and tribulations that come along with falling in and unfortunately out of it. There is a song for everyone to relate to on Hearts on Fire and it’s sure to bring Brownlee even more success.
Brownlee also has several upcoming shows in Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Alberta between June and August. Be sure to head over to here to get all the information you need on the shows.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
