Canadian country stars Dean Brody and Paul Brandt come to Abbotsford Centre on Friday, Sept. 25 as part of their co-headline 21-city tour called #roadtriptour.

Brody and Brandt have both won multiple Juno and Canadian Country Music Association awards.

Brandt is recognized as the most awarded male Canadian country artist in history, and Brody is the most played Canadian country artist on radio.

Brody and Brandt share commonalities beyond the scope of their success in country music.

Both were born in western Canada and both set off for Nashville early in their careers.

In addition to the tour, both are busy with their latest music. Brody has released his fifth album, Gypsy Road, which features the top 10 single Upside Down.

In March, Brandt released his latest single, Nothing, which hit number 30 on the Canadian Artists chart and joins two hit singles, Forever Summer and Get a Bed.

Opening for the pair is Lindi Ortega, who recently released her fourth album, Faded Gloryville, which was recorded in three different sessions.

Faded Gloryville is the follow-up to Ortega’s album Tin Star, which earned her a Juno nomination for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year and a win at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards.

The concert in Abbotsford starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.ca. For more information, visit abbotsfordcentre.ca.
