Dean Brody's most recent album Crop Circles and Tractor Beams is up for a Juno Award. In the running for the top Country Album of the Year, this is the former Jaffray resident's third Juno nomination.

Released in November of 2013, Crop Circles debuted at number one on the iTunes Canada Country Album chart and third on the Canadian Country Album chart. The album includes Brody's current single Crop Circles, as well as the gold-selling number one track Bounty, featuring Lindi Ortega.

The local country star has been named the Most Played Canadian Artist at Country Radio and has earned himself seven Canadian Country Music Awards. He also recently became the first male Canadian artist with two number one songs at Country Radio with his 2012 song Canadian Girls and Bounty.

Brody is currently touring Canada with his Crop Circles and Tractor Beams arena tour. He will be making a stop close to home at Cranbrook's Western Financial Place on Tuesday, February 15.
