2020 COUNTRY ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Dallas Smith | | The JUNO Awards

A multiple JUNO and CCMA Award-winning entertainer, Dallas Smith is one of the most celebrated artists in Canadian Country music. In 2018, the Platinum-selling Country star added to one of the most notable careers in Canadian music with two CCMA Awards for “Male Artist of the Year” and “Video of the Year”. He has amassed international appeal since making his Country music debut with Jumped Right In, a project that netted a CRIA Gold-certified single, 5 CCMA Award nominations and a JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year. He followed with the infectious CRIA Platinum-certified single “Tippin’ Point” and continued to dominate the Canadian Country charts with songs like “Lifted”, multi-week #1 hits “Wastin’ Gas”, “Autograph”, “Side Effects”, “Sky Stays This Blue”, “Sleepin’ Around” and “Make ‘Em Like You”.

Adding to the list of accolades, Smith has two CRIA Platinum-certified singles, 10 CRIA Gold-certified singles and 3 CRIA Gold-certified albums. Smith continues to dominate uncharted territory and is the FIRST AND ONLY CANADIAN COUNTRY ARTIST in the Nielsen BDS era, to have four consecutive #1 singles from the same album, topping the three from Shania Twain’s “Come On Over”. Smith also surpasses Shania Twain for the most #1 songs by a Canadian Country artist in the Nielsen BDS-era with seven. On March 15th, Smith released “The Fall” EP, which includes his latest chart-topping single “Rhinestone World” and will join Dean Brody on the national “Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone” Tour this fall.
