Dean Brody – Crop Circles Tour
Oshawa, Ontario – General Motors Center
Making a stop on his Crop Circles tour, Dean Brody stopped in Oshawa, Ontario to a sold out crowd of eager Country fans to hear the Canadian County artist.
Playing songs from his new album, Crop Circles, along with songs from his previous album, Dean Brody, Trail in Life, and Dirt. Brody had the entire stadium singing along to almost all of his tracks that he sang.
Some of the songs that Brody played were: ‘Bounty’, ‘Four Wheel Drive’, ‘Crop Circles’, ‘Brothers’, along with ‘Canadian Girls’ to end the night off. Brody had people on their feet for most of the night, and got an emotional response from fans during ‘Brothers’ and ‘Marianne.’
Fans especially loved when Brody finished the night off with his hit ‘Canadian girls’, which was written about the women he grew up around loves because of just how unique they are.
Like fellow country artists, Brody couldn’t resist singing songs about his truck. But, the depth to his other songs is what makes him an amazing artist. More than once during the concert people had their lighters, or cell phones, out to light the stadium as he played one of those powerful ballads.
The admittedly ‘non dancer’ didn’t let that hold him back as he danced across the stage, and he even tried to move into the crowd. But, he had some issues with balance while standing on the boards.
Brody took the time to speak about his opening act, Cassadee Pope. Former winner of The Voice and lead singer of Hey Monday, Pope impressed fans with her songs and dance moves in her heels. Brody thanked her for agreeing to a Canadian tour in the middle of winter, since Pope is from Florida and obviously not used to the cold winter that Canada has to offer. Pope also did a cover of Shania Twain’s ‘That don’t impress me much’, saying that fans should know this artist since she did also come from Canada.
Not only has Brody had a Juno nomination for Album of the Year, but also he’s won the CCMA 2012 and 2013 Male Artist of the Year award. The British Columbia native has been very busy since his career officially started in 2004, and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. It’s obvious that music is what Brody loves to do, and I for one hope he isn’t planning on stopping anytime soon.
