The CMT Hitlist Tour will roll through Ottawa, Ontario at Centrepoint Theatre on Wednesday, October 12. This stop, one of 26, will feature sets from Canadian artists Dean Brody, Deric Ruttan, and Aaron Lines.
Dean Brody dominated the CCMA Awards this past September, winning Album of the Year for his current album Train In Life, as well as Single of the Year and Songwriter of the Year for the same-titled single. Dean has spent most weeks sitting at #1 on Canadian country radio over the past year. The artist will most definitely be performing his current hit “Little Yellow Blanket” which has moved into the Top 10 in only seven weeks – his fastest charting single thus far in his career.
Deric Ruttan received five nominations at the 2011 CCMA Awards for his 2010 CD release titled Sunshine. His second single from that album, “Up All Night” was the most-played Canadian country song of 2010. He is currently promoting his new live album Up All Night – Deric Ruttan which came out just weeks ago.
The show will also feature hit maker Aaron Lines, who was the most played Canadian artist on country radio from 2000 to 2010. With past wins at the CCMA’S for awards such as Male Artist of the Year and Rising Star Award, Aaron was recognized at the 2011 show with a nomination for Album of the Year for his CD Sunday Afternoon.
After the show in Ottawa, the tour will make stops in London, Guelph, Belleville, and Parry Sound before heading out East.
