Dallas Smith joins Sunfest stars

As country music fans know, Dallas Smith loves a good party.

As country music fans know, Dallas Smith loves a good party. And that’s a good thing because he’s coming to Sunfest 2016.

The Vancouver-bred country superstar knows how to perform on the big stage, as he took part in the celebrations surrounding the 103rd Grey Cup in Winnipeg, joining the fun on Nov. 29.

He took home an incredible five awards at this year’s BC Country Music Awards in categories including Album of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, Fan Choice Award, Male Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year.

Now he’s back with a new release, Kids With Cars, celebrating those never-to-be-forgotten years when what you drove — import, classic or brand new Mustang —said a lot about who you were. Music lovers are sure to relate when he joins Carrie Underwood and Dierks Bentley next summer at Sunfest.

Other acts coming to Sunfest were also announced this week.

They include High Valley, Chase Bryant and The Road Hammers.

Early bird single day tickets are now on sale until Dec. 31. For more information, check out sunfestconcerts.com and book your August long weekend fun now.
