What are your plans for February 14? It’s a great date night to stay home and enjoy the stories and music of Don Amero and some of his friends – it’s “A Date With Don” kinda night!
Don Amero, (part of the MDM Recording Inc. family) is a three-time JUNO Award nominee and a Manitoba Country Music Association multi-award winner who is bringing you all the love this Valentine’s Day with an extra special virtual concert that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. In partnership with SiriusXM Top of the Country and the Canadian Country Music Association, “A Date With Don” via Side Door, will bring that special something for all those who are unable to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the more traditional way due to the pandemic. Or, maybe this is just the perfect way to cuddle up in solitude and be serenaded by three amazing artists in what feels like a private concert. Whatever way you want to celebrate this night, including this live stream is a must!
Amero is a country/folk singer-songwriter whose storytelling is captivating to all those that listen. He is genuine and has an effortless ability to connect with his audience. He’s also very excited for this audience to meet and be wowed by the singer-songwriters and fellow Winnipeggers Noah Derksen and Rhianna Rae Sag. Sag is the emotionally rich voice you hear singing with Amero on his latest single “I Hate That Song” which is a follow up to the upbeat toe-tapper “Wasn’t The Dress” that went Top 50 on Canadian country radio.
Says Amero about Rhianna Rae Sag,
“Here’s the funny thing – we’ve never actually met. I’ve known of Rhianna for a few years, and when I was recording this track (“I Hate This Song”) our friend and producer Roman Clarke said, “What about having Rhianna Rae Sag sing on this and make it a duet?” Up till then, I only performed it as a solo song and I was definitely curious to see how that would turn out. She came into the studio when I was on the road and when I heard what she did; I was smitten with that voice and with it now as a duet. I am so excited to meet her for the first time in person at this show and introduce you to her if you’ve not already had the pleasure of meeting and hearing her.”
Amero has this to say about Noah Derksen,
“You gotta be careful who you share the stage with. This guy has got songs! He’s a true gent and I am confident that you’re gonna love him! I was at a gig in Toronto a few years ago and Noah Derksen walked in. I asked if he wanted to come up and play a song. I sat there blown away by how gifted he is. I was a little bit bummed to get back on stage and I think maybe a few in the crowd were too!”

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.
