Three celebrated Canadian country music stars are coming to Nanoose Bay this weekend.

Juno nominated Chad Brownlee and Canadian Country Music Association award winners Jess Moskaluke and Bobby Wills will join other Canadian bands Midnight Sons, Dylan Stone Band and Dark Horse for the When the Lights Go Down Tour.

The tour is hosted by Wideglide Entertainment ltd. as a way to build anticipation for this summer’s Sunfest Country Music Festival in the Cowichan Valley, said Emmalee Brunt, PR Manager for Sunfest Concerts.

British Columbian singer-songwriter and former NHL draft pick Chad Brownlee has received numerous accolades, including a Juno nomination for country album of the year and consecutive male artist of the year nominations from the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA).

Brownlee previously performed at Sunfest in 2011 and 2013.

Jess Moskaluke is a country-pop songstress who rapidly rose to stardom in three years.

Recipient of the 2014 CCMA award for female artist of the year, Moskaluke also has the highest charting song on the iTunes top 200 singles chart for any Canadian artist (Cheap Wine and Cigarettes).

Her single Light Up The Night achieved gold record status in August 2014, becoming the first Canadian female solo country artist to surpass 40,000-plus downloads since Shania Twain.

Finally, Bobby Wills amalgamates classic country with deep rock ’n roll undertones to create a dynamic sound.

It earned him the nomination for male artist of the year at the 2014 CCMA awards, as well as 2013 CCMA rising star title and the Alberta Country Music Association male artist of the year award in both 2012 and 2013.

The event will be held at Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Centre (1515 E. Island Hwy) from 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. General admission tickets are available online now at sunfestconcerts.com/lights-go-tour.
