Chad Brownlee will perform at the Grandstand on the Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show main stage. An award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick, country music artist Chad Brownlee is by definition a renaissance man. With over a billion radio impressions to date, his singles have rapidly climbed the country music charts. Most recently, he has just been nominated for the 2017 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Awards for Male Artist of the Year and People’s Choice. Chad also picked up a highly coveted 2017 JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year, earned GOLD certification for his single “I Hate You For It”, celebrated his first #1 video at CMT and achieved his third consecutive top 10 hit with the single, “Somethin’ We Shouldn’t Do”. Throughout his career, Brownlee has received critical acclaim and numerous accolades including a 2013 JUNO nomination for Country Album of the Year, and multiple Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award™ nominations, including a 2016 Album of the Year nod for Hearts On Fire, the fourth release in his discography. In January of 2017 Brownlee’s Hearts On Fire Tour collided with Tim Hicks’ Shake These Walls Tour for 8 highly praised co-headlining dates across Western Canada anchored by his inspiring and unorthodox approach.
