Canada’s favourite country singer, Johnny Reid, will be the headline entertainer at next summer’s Westerner Days Fair and Exhibition.
Reid, who swept the 2009 Canadian Country Music Association Awards, winning in five of the six major categories in which he was nominated — including the Fan’s Choice Award — will perform on Saturday, July 24, at the Centrium.
Reid also won Album of the Year for his platinum-selling Dance With Me CD, and Video of the Year for A Woman Like You. His singles, A Woman Like You, Dance with Me and Old Flame, were all Top 10 hits in Canada’s country radio stations.
The Scottish-born singer’s previous recording, Kickin’ Stones, was also a platinum seller in Canada and yielded the hit singles Love Sweet Love, the title track and Darlin.’
Tickets for the 8:30 p.m. concert are $30, including service fees and taxes, and go on sale on Friday from Ticketmaster. Tickets do not include gate admission to the fair.
