Almost everyone finds a reason to celebrate on St Patrick’s Day, but Dean Brody found one a little more unique than most. On March 17th, he was awarded the Jeff Walker Global Country Artist Award backstage at his performance at CMC Rocks QLD in Queensland, Australia.
The award is given to someone is an outstanding country music artist and has furthered the popularity of the genre, as well as brought the genre to foreign areas that may not be as familiar with country music.
Seeing as Brody is one of Canada’s best and brightest in country music, it more than makes sense that he was given this honour.
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.
