Multiple JUNO and CCMA Award-winning artist Dallas Smith earns his 7th No. one single with “Rhinestone World” today as the hook-filled track tops the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase Canadian Country Radio charts this week.
Serving as the second consecutive chart-topper from his forthcoming EP and sixth consecutive No. one single as a solo artist, Smith firmly remains in uncharted territory with a record-breaking seven No. 1 singles to date.
Building a reputation as both an honest hitmaker and fearless entertainer, achieving multi-platinum success, Smith continues his remarkable journey with the release of his highly anticipated EP “The Fall” (604 Records), available digitally everywhere this Friday, March 15th.
“Thank you to Country Radio and the fans here in Canada,” shares Smith. “It’s been 10 years since my trip down to Nashville to chase this dream and I’ve had to pinch myself every step of the way since.”
Produced by Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen) and co-produced by Dave Cohen, the six-song EP includes a playful collaboration with friends Dean Brody and MacKenzie Porter on “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drink Alone” as well as Smith’s sixth and seventh No.1 chart-toppers “Make ‘Em Like You”, and “Rhinestone World”.
Building on Smith’s capability to deliver vibrant vocals and undeniable hooks, “The Fall” adds to one of the most successful careers in Canadian Country music and cements the British Columbia native’s ability to pave his own way while leading the genre.
This fall Smith joins Dean Brody as the two iconic country artists, collaborate for the first-ever, larger-than-life, Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone Tour, kicking off in Sault Ste. Marie on Sept 18, before heading across the country. See the full list of dates below.
In 2018, the Platinum-selling Country star added to his long list of career milestones taking home two CCMA Awards for “Male Artist of the Year” and “Video of the Year”. He has amassed international appeal since making his Country music debut with Jumped Right In, a project that netted a CRIA Gold-certified single, 5 CCMA Award nominations and a JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year.
He followed with the infectious CRIA Platinum-certified single “Tippin’ Point” and continued to dominate the Canadian Country charts with songs like “Lifted”, multi-week #1 hits “Wastin’ Gas”, “Autograph”, “Side Effects”, “Sky Stays This Blue”, “Sleepin’ Around” and “Make ‘Em Like You”.
Adding to the list of accolades, Smith has two CRIA Platinum-certified singles, 10 CRIA Gold-certified singles and 3 CRIA Gold-certified albums. Smith is the FIRST AND ONLY CANADIAN COUNTRY SOLO ARTIST in the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era, to have six consecutive #1 singles and four successive #1 singles from the same album, topping the three from Shania Twain’s “Come On Over”. Smith also surpasses Shania Twain for the most #1 songs by a Canadian Country artist in the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era with seven.
