Three major milestones and possibly his dreams coming true are happening for Canadian country music superstar Dallas Smith in September:
1. This is a two-parter – Smith’s latest single, “Drop” is his eighth #1 single and his seventh consecutive #1 as a solo artist.
Dallas Smith is a multiple JUNO and CCMA award-winning artist and he continues to make history. Smith now has a record-breaking eight #1 singles to date – the most #1 songs by a Canadian artist on the country music airplay chart in Nielsen BDS and Mediabase history. Today, he earned his eighth #1 single with “Drop.” This single makes it the seventh consecutive chart topper for Smith (third from his current EP The Fall) as a solo artist. Smith is also the first and only Canadian country music solo artist to celebrate these successes in the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era. What a great accomplishment for a very talented artist.
“Eight … geez!!! What an incredible way to celebrate this chapter of my life. This year has already been beyond anything I could have dreamed of, I’m just so grateful and blown away by the continued support from radio, fans, friends and family.”
2. On September 8, in Calgary, Smith will co-host the CCMA Awards Show with country legend Billy Ray Cyrus.
Heading into Canadian Country Music Week as the reigning CCMA Male Artist of the Year and having built his reputation as an honest hit-maker and fearless entertainer, Smith continues on his extraordinary and notable journey. In 2018, this Platinum-selling country music star took home two CCMA awards for Male Artist of the Year and Video of the Year.The 2019 CCMA Awards will air live on Global on September 8 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, stream on Twitter and broadcast live on Corus radio stations Country 105 (Calgary), CISN Country 103.9 (Edmonton) and Country 104 (London/Woodstock).
3. Starting on September 18, Smith and another iconic country music artist, Dean Brody, join together for the larger-than-life itself Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone Tour.
This first-ever cross Canada and much-celebrated tour for these country music giants kicks off in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, and ends in Abbotsford, BC. With both having a large library of hits, including recent chart-topping hits “Drop” and “Black Sheep,” this impressive two-hour show will be the “go to” concert of the fall.

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
