Brody’s next tour, much to the delight of his fans will be a special up close and personal theatre tour, called Dirt Road Stories Acoustic Tour with special Guest, Saskatchewan’s Tenille Arts.

Brody, originally signed with Broken Bow Records in 2008, and made his debut later that year with the single “Brothers”.

In 2010, Brody was signed to Open Road Recordings and released his second album, “Trail in Life”. Then in 2012, his third album “Dirt”, earned the 2012 CCMA Album of the Year Award and a Juno Award in the same category.
