Since his debut single “Brothers” hit the US Top-40 back in 2008, Dean has become one of the most beloved Canadian country artists of his generation.
Dean has risen and continues to remain at the top of the Canadian country landscape with an impressive 27 Top-10 singles (including 5 #1s), 17 CCMA Awards, 2 JUNOs, more than 185 million global streams and numerous gold and platinum (including 1 double platinum) certified singles. Only Shania Twain has more Canadian streams than Dean when looking at Canadian country artists' “lifetime” results.
No country artist has owned the Canadian “Live” stage more than Dean in the past 5 years with three national arena tours (2 breaking ticket sale records), an acoustic national tour as well as headlining the biggest festival and venue stages.
In 2019, Dean signed with a new management team (Starseed Entertainment) and launched his own independent label “Scurvy Dog Music”. The label’s first single “Can’t Help Myself” (Dean and The Reklaws) not only hit #1 at Canadian country radio, and became the most-streamed Canadian country song in Canada released in 2020 to date. but it became the most spun single in a one-week period in the country format in the history of the Nielsen BDS era (25 years, including US acts). Dean recently broke this record with his follow-up single “Canadian Summer”.
On top of all this trailblazing on an artist and label level, Dean also created and launched his own signature Canadian-sourced lager “Hucklejack” in the late spring of 2020, securing a rare placement on the Ontario LCBO shelves, a testament to the strength of his star power and music brand.
