Canadian country singer Dean Brody took the stage on Sunday night at the Drive-In Experience at Wesley Clover Parks and played to a sold-out crowd of happy fans.
Sacha is an upcoming Canadian country artist who kicked things off at the drive-in last night. She has been through Ottawa before, including at the 2019 Ottawa Dragonboat Festival.
Sacha’s set included the songs Standards and Cheers from her newest album. The video for Cheers is set to make its debut on CMT Nashville in the next couple of weeks.
Backed by a band of capable musicians, Sacha’s songs exude fun.
Canadian country star Dean Brody was warmly welcomed to the stage by the capacity crowd, with honks and hollers.
Dean’s most-used acoustic guitar has a handwritten inscription that reads, “Peace, love and all good things to you,” and it certainly seems to be serving him well, as he has won many CCMA awards and 2 Junos.
His set was energetic, enhanced by the great stage and audio-visual production of the Drive-in Experience Ottawa at Wesley Clover Parks.
Many concertgoers chose to back into their spots so they could tailgate, as true country fans would.
A young couple perfectly encapsulates the drive-in concert experience.
Brody took frequent opportunities to talk to the crowd and tell stories. He introduced Mountain Man by saying that it was his dad who was the true mountain man, so much so that his even two bosses had been mauled by bears.
He spoke to the country fan’s heart with his new song Bucket List, about finding enjoyment in cold beer in a bucket of ice.
Alone on stage, he introduced a new song that he wrote about his daughter. I’d Go to Jail is a touching tribute to the lengths that a father would go to in order to protect his little girl.
Dean gave the crowd a pep talk about growing up feeling different and encouraged others who feel different to be themselves as he dedicated Black Sheep to them.
