A testament to his drive and talent, Chad Brownlee (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) is an extraordinary example of what one person can achieve. Although he may focus on living in the moment and absorbing every treasured second with his fans while performing on stage, Brownlee has already lived a life many would argue could fill multiple lifetimes. An award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick, country music artist Brownlee is by definition a renaissance man, who lives by the credence that “opportunity lies along the path created by the choices you make.”
In recent years his singles have rapidly climbed the country music charts, with multiple singles cracking Top 10, including “Listen”, “Smoke In The Rain” and “Crash”. In June 2014 he released his third album, THE FIGHTERS, featuring the singles “Fallin’ Over You” and “Just Because”. Brownlee will headline the 2015 Canadian tour When The Lights Go Down, travelling nationwide in March.
Shares Brownlee, “ Fallin’ Over You has become one of my favourite songs to sing because of the passion that comes out of the melody and lyrics. You know that feeling you get when you realize that a certain someone has taken a hold of you in the best way possible? That’s what this song is all about. That feeling of freedom, of flying, and falling without worrying where you’re going to land.”
Over the last few years Brownlee has received critical acclaim and numerous accolades including a highly coveted JUNO nomination for Country Album of the Year, and consecutive Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA®) Award™ Male Artist of the Year nominations (2012 & 2013). For this British Columbia, Canada native, a strong work ethic defines his successful transition from the ice rink to the stage. A culmination of many days and nights on the road and hours in the studio, Brownlee has been taking the Canadian country music world by storm. Expanding his musical horizons, he crossed the border this year to share the Country Thunder Festival stage (in both Wisconsin and Arizona, USA), performing a mix of fan favourites and new tracks off his latest album
