Twisted Tea and Dean Brody to Join Forces to Host the Ultimate Summer Party with a Twist
Thursday May 24, 2018 – Current CCMA Fan’s Choice, 16-time CCMA Award winner and 2-time Juno Award winning artist Dean Brody is set to release a brand new summer single and playlist essential, “Good Goodbye” on May 25. Simultaneously, fans will get access to two new songs at once across all digital and streaming platforms, including single “Good Goodbye”, and “Dose of Country”.
Both new songs are upbeat, fun, lighthearted, and perfect for the summer season. The single, “Good Goodbye” draws inspiration from “having a little too much time between checkout and the flight and there happening to be a bar nearby”, says Brody, and soaking up the last moments of a vacation, transporting listeners to Mexico lyrically, and made complete with the addition of a choir and trumpets and a mariachi band.
“Dose of Country” is the ultimate road trip song, highlighting the pure joy that comes from getting out of the city for the weekend, to bask in whatever ‘a dose of country’ might mean to each individual listener – conjuring up images of camping, cottage weekends and good times. As Brody says, “Dose of Country was inspired by the city… and wanting to get the hell out of it and back into nature! The city always reminds me of how fortunate I am to be a country boy.”
In a ‘twist’ of fate, Brody is teaming up with Twisted Tea for the summer, which will involve a contest and collaboration to host the ultimate summer party. The contest, which opens on May 30 at www.twistedtea.com/Twistedteaparty, will give one lucky fan the opportunity to host a summer bash with an unbelievable twist — not only will Dean Brody and his band perform live for the winner and their closest friends at the party, but it will also be the setting for the music video shoot for Brody’s second single, “Dose of Country”.
In February Brody hit the #1 spot on the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase Canadian Country Airplay Charts with his last single, “8th Day”. He is now forging in-roads on a global scale, recently taking home The Jeff Walker Global Artist Award presented by the CMA, following his main stage performance at CMC Rocks in Australia.
Following the success of his Juno-nominated album, Beautiful Freakshow, Dean Brody will perform his second headline show at Budweiser Stage in Toronto on Friday, August 17th, along with Canadian musician and lead singer of Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea, Alan Doyle, and American star, Michael Ray, best known for his #1 single on the Country Airplay Chart, “Kiss You in the Morning”, and current single from his new record, Amos, “Get to You.”
Fans can also catch Brody on the festival circuit this summer at Trackside Music Festival (ON), Country Thunder (SK), Country Thunder (AB), and Havelock Country Jamboree (ON).
