Your Town Throw Down, featuring talented Canadian country artists, Chad Brownlee, Deric Ruttan and Jason Blaine will roll into Casino NB’s Event Centre in Moncton for a performance on Saturday, October 19th at 8 pm.
Chad Brownlee (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) had a showcase year in the country music world, recently topping things off with a 2012 Canadian Country Music Award (CCMA) nomination for Male Artist of the Year, and performing on the live national CBC TV broadcast of the awards show in September 2012. Since the release of his latest album, Love Me Or Leave Me in February 2012, the talented singer-songwriter has shown the industry that his popularity in country music is on the rise; quite literally as he was also the recipient of the 2011 Rising Star Award at the CCMA’s. In addition to his musical adventures, the Kelowna, BC born artist also announced a new partnership with the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, visiting camps throughout Canada and leading music workshops with the campers this past summer.

The recording offers a collection of songs about family, relationships, good times and memories, all reflecting maturity and a sense of being at peace in his world.

Comprised of songs he wrote during and after college, the album included the Top 25 singles, “Heartache Like Mine”, “While We Were Waiting” and “What I Can’t Forget.” The album was re-released in 2006 on Icon Records. The follow-up, Make My Move, came out two years later on Koch (now eOne) and hit the Top 5 on the Canadian country album chart.
