An award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick (for the Vancouver Canucks), country music artist Chad Brownlee is by definition a renaissance man. With over a billion radio impressions to date, his singles have rapidly climbed the country music charts, with multiple singles cracking the national Top 10, including his last two singles “Hearts On Fire” and “I Hate You For It”. “I Hate You For It” was also the top selling country digital song by a Canadian artist (source: Nielsen Soundscan) for 10 weeks earlier this year. Chad recently released his latest single “Somethin’ We Shouldn’t Do” to Canadian radio on October 4, 2016.
A proud native of British Columbia, throughout his career Brownlee has received critical acclaim and numerous accolades including a highly coveted 2013 JUNO nomination for Country Album of the Year, and most recently multiple 2016 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award ™ nominations, including Album of the Year for Hearts On Fire, the fourth release in his discography.
The five-time GOLD certified Hicks released “Shake These Walls”, the follow-up to 2014’s CCMA Award nominated sophomore album 5:01/5:01+ on September 9th. The album is a combination of slick party-fueled anthems, blue collar country and free-spirited romance, shaping the evolution of an artist the Toronto Star named “one to watch” and one who remains intent on leading the pace within an evolving musical landscape. Co-written by Hicks, “Shake These Walls” debuted as the #1 selling Canadian Country Album on the Nielsen SoundScan Top Country Albums Chart, bringing the acclaimed country artist front and centre for his proverbial close-up.
With over one million streams at Spotify, Hicks celebrated his highest charting hit single last month with “Stompin’ Ground” and this week he boasts the #1 most added song at Canadian Country Radio with “Slow Burn”.
